Things remain hot and dry across the region thanks to a stubborn block of high pressure. Temperatures were pushing 90 around noon today, just showing how incredibly warm the air mass is. Rain showers are not expected to be as prevalent as yesterday’s isolated activity, but a few pop-ups are possible.
The end of the unusually hot and dry pattern is moving closer. We will continue to break records for high temperatures and consecutive dry days. As we move into the end of the week, a cold front looks to start changing things around here. It doesn’t look to be a rain-profitable front, but we will get a huge cool down with it. Temperatures will be dropping 20-25 degrees across the board, putting us around normal again for temperatures. Rain chances remain low through the entire week and weekend, however. We will see a change in precipitation chances towards the end of the weekend. A stronger cold front will have more moisture to work with and no high pressure to tear it apart. This means we will be looking at a much better chance for rainfall at the beginning of next week.
