TODAY – Back to the 90°s - High: 92º

Happy Tuesday! We are settling into a warm, more summer-like pattern this week.

We’ve got high pressure at the surface, as well as ridging in the jet stream pattern aloft:

Having both of these features in place will keep our weather trending dry and warm for at least the next few days.

Rain looks scarce today:

Highs will climb to the low 90°s this afternoon and dew points will stay in the mid-60°s throughout the day.

We’re catching a bit of moisture inflow from the Gulf of Mexico, keeping our air a tad more saturated:

So, it’ll be a bit sticky out there, but not bad for late-summer.

THIS EVENING: 86° by 7 PM 

SUNSET: 7:15 PM

It’ll be a warm, somewhat muggy evening.

Any showers that pop-up during the heat of the afternoon should fizzle as we approach sunset:

Overnight lows will only drop to near 70°, under mostly clear skies.

WEDNESDAY – Another Hot Afternoon - Wake Up: 70º, High: 93°

SUNRISE: 6:19 AM

Similar conditions will return for your Wednesday, as high pressure continues to steer us in a warmer direction.

High temperatures will bump up a degree or two tomorrow.

Expect plenty of sun and not much of anything in terms of rain:

THURSDAY – Summer is Still in the House – Wake Up: 71º, High: 93°

Highs will once again be in the low 90°s by Thursday.

Rain chances still don’t look impressive, but an upper-level disturbance could begin to up our chances for Friday…
