Things are still a bit active outside with multiple rain and thundershowers being picked up on the MaxTrack. Heavy downpours continue over areas that have had over a month’s worth of rainfall in the last 5 days. If you’re not getting rain, it’s a mix of sun and clouds with a hot and muggy feeling. Rain cooling brings temperatures down into the 70s.
As we progress further into the work week, conditions improve. The last of the showers and storms will taper into the overnight as we lose daytime heating. Afterwards, expect partly cloudy skies. Due to the saturated air at the surface, fog will be a likely component to the morning forecast, especially in rural areas. Use caution and leave a little early for work Thursday. Midsummer heat and humidity will be the case going forward as high pressure makes a stand late week. Temperatures will soar past the norm of 86 degrees and push into the 90s for the holiday weekend. Overnight will run warm as well only bottoming out in the upper 60s or low 70s. Sunshine will be abundant thanks to the higher pressure in place. So, outdoor activities are a “go” for this weekend. Of course, with the added heat and sunshine we must focus on heat safety this weekend. Make sure you’re drinking plenty of water to stay hydrated. Also, seek shade often. The sun will take a lot out of you, especially in the water. Chances for rain remain low through the weekend.
