It’s another typical summer morning with temperatures starting in the middle or upper 60s. Skies are either mostly clear or opaque thanks to some patchy morning fog in the river valleys. The MaxTrack is quiet and will remain so through the day, save for maybe an isolated thundershower outside of our forecast area.

The peak of the current heat wave will be running early this week with temperatures continuing to reach the low 90s outside. Humidity has been manageable which has made it outdoor weather for a while. Rain chances remain minimal for a few more days before we start to see the changes. A cold front will arrive midweek and will start to lower temperatures. First, the change will be by only a few degrees thanks to cloud coverage and rain. Eventually, a cooler, Canadian air mass will work in and bring temperatures down into the low 80s as we’re moving into the upcoming weekend.
