Friday Puts Us Back in the Fryer
We hit a record high of 100° today (besting the record of 96° back in 1904) and we have a chance to break one more record Friday before we slowly start to cool down.
The first of two cold fronts (this one weaker) will push through tomorrow and could trigger a few isolated showers and maybe a thunderstorm in the heat of the afternoon. This will slowly begin the cooling process aided by cooler air sliding in from east of the Appalachians Saturday into Sunday.
The second cold front (this one stronger) will slide through Monday/Monday night and bring those highly anticipated seasonal temperatures with highs in the 70s and 80s and lows in the 50s and 60s. Hello, Fall!
Drought deficits continue to climb. Daily isolated showers are possible over the next several days, but nothing that will make much of a dent in these dry conditions.
