WHAT TO EXPECT

It’s heating up even more, starting today! We’re topping out around 87 degrees, but it feels several degrees warmer due to rising humidity. We’re seeing scattered clouds increase as well, with a partly cloudy at times day.

This evening through tonight, spotty rain and storms are developing and moving through. It’s a 20% coverage of our area, with spotty downpours and storms, and a few light showers as well. We’ll only drop to around 67 degrees by Tuesday morning.

LOOKING AHEAD

Tuesday and Wednesday are still aimed at 90s! We’re looking a partly cloudy view, with a stray shower early Tuesday, then mostly sunny and 90 degrees. Then Wednesday is mostly sunny and 94 degrees. It’s also more humid, so it feels several degrees hotter. Stay hydrated!

Now, Thursday we’re monitoring the pace of a cold front. As of now, we’ll hit 84 degrees with spotty rain and storms, from a “cold front”. It will also be breezier, with gusts of 20+ mph.

While the rain isn’t impressive, at least the heat takes a hit. We’ll fall back (pun intended with the official start of fall late Thursday) to highs in the upper 70s Friday and low 80s this weekend.

If you’re hoping for rain, as of now we’re seeing a 60% coverage Sunday night in your First Alert 8-Day Planner.
