The Heat is On!
HEAT INDEX INTO THE LOW 100S
High pressure will continue to help keep our area mostly dry today and Wednesday, but there still could be a few showers and maybe a thunderstorm popping up with the daytime heating. This high pressure will start to flatten out as we make it into the middle of the week.
Winds from the west will filter in what is left of the former Barry and increase our chances of rain just a bit Wednesday/Thursday to our north and west before high pressure returns and sticks around through early next week. Moisture will be trapped under this ridge of high pressure, so we will hold on to a chance for isolated showers and thunderstorms during the weekend.
Daytime highs for the rest of the forecast period will stay a few degrees (at least) above the norm with daily heat indices reaching the low 100s if not a bit hotter. Overnight lows will run up to 5 degrees above average.
TODAY- Hit or miss showers and thunderstorms this afternoon under partly sunny skies. Highs in the mid 90s. Heat indices in the low 100s.
TONIGHT- Clear overnight. Lows in the mid 70s.
WEDNESDAY- Isolated showers and thunderstorms in afternoon under partly sunny skies. Highs in the mid 90s. Heat indices in the low 100s.
