All summer, all week

Prolonged heat and humidity with storms
Posted at 3:18 PM, Jul 06, 2020

We’re entering a pretty stagnant summer patter with hot, humid, and slightly stormy conditions each afternoon. Temperatures have already warmed into the low 90s for most as humidity remains high. Dew point temperatures are running in the low 70s making it feel more like the low to middle 90s for the heat index. A few t-showers have popped up on the MaxTrack, but the coverage is isolated at best.

Today’s weather conditions will continue through the week. High pressure is close enough to keep storm systems away, but not close enough to keep cumulus building. A few of these will turn into showers and a few of those will reach thunderstorm status. Nothing severe is expected, but there will still be some heavy downpours and strong wind gusts at times. Small hail is also possible. Most will get by each day without a drop thanks to the small nature of the storms. A relatively week cold front will slide through at the end of the week. This front will bring an uptick in shower and storm activity, while also delivering a more seasonable air mass. Temperatures will cool slightly for the weekend, and the humidity will also be cut slightly as well.
