Hot This Week, Scattered Storm Chances Late Week

NEW: Air Quality Alert

It’s Getting Hot!

This week’s afternoon temperatures will be above average, with highs during the day pushing 90°F+!

High pressure is in control of our weather through midweek, so not even a pop-up shower can form to cool us off.

When Do Things Change?

You’ll likely notice the gradual uptick in humidity as the work week progresses. As high pressure breaks down and moves east, Thursday and Friday are the days we could begin to see afternoon, “hot-and-humid-induced” thunderstorms. These pop up in the afternoon and quickly fall apart after sunset.

By the weekend, rain chances will increase, particularly right ahead of an approaching cold front. There is a good amount of uncertainty as to the potency and the timing of this front, so details will need a few more days to iron out. One thing that is more certain: the rain will help cool our temps into the 80s. Allergy Forecast
