Temp & Rain Probabilities Next 36 Hours (auto-updating)
Today – Sunny – High 93
High pressure and a North wind will keep us rain free and our humidity relatively low.
Three Days of Pain
Day 1: Saturday – Mostly Sunny – Wake Up 67, High 95
South winds return, driving up temps and humidity. Heat indices (“feels like” temps) will approach 100.
The good news is no thunderstorms are being forecast for Saturday.
Day 2: Sunday – Hotter, More Humid – Wake Up 70, High 96
The temp/dew point levels will be in “no fun” range.
Late Sunday night, a cold front will begin to approach, pushing a line of showers and thunderstorms out ahead of it. Heres’ the NAM’s Simulated Radar, showing where the line of showers may be positioned at 1 AM Monday morning (or late Sunday night, whichever you prefer):
Day 3: Monday – Hot, Very Humid – High 90
Dewpoints will hit 70, making this the most humid day of the three.
Rain (Severe Wx?)
Meanwhile, all eyes will be on the cold front positioned to our N and NW. It is expected the rain and storms associated with that front will arrive sometime Monday night or in the wee hours of Tuesday morning.
These storms may be strong or severe. The Storm Prediction Center has included us in their severe weather outlook:
As you can read above, our inclusion here means the probability is 30% or more than we’ll see a severe thunderstorm between 0 and 25 miles of us. We will be monitoring this severe weather potential through the weekend.
. . . and then
When the cold front clears sometime Tuesday, it’ll clear out the rain, and slash high temps down to
83 on Tuesday
80 on Wednesday, and
82 on Thursday.
