Hang in There

Heat relief in the form of increased cloud and thunderstorm coverage is coming soon. That sounds so dramatic. The heat is modestly less tomorrow and noticeably less Friday. It won't be cool just not as hot. Temperatures the next two days reflect the degree of storminess with scattered afternoon showers and storms Thursday and a tick more Friday. Friday is the wetter of the two.

Forecast Discussion

The wait for "not as hot" is nearly over. It doesn't come in the form of a cooler airmass, but rather more clouds and storms. Meaning we'll lose the heat to some extent, but the humidity doesn't go away. Of course it's now late June so that's no surprise.

The best opportunity for showers and storms are Thursday and Friday as a frontal boundary stalls well to our north and pushes a ridge of high pressure far enough south to open the door. Friday is likely the wetter of the two days.

The action tapers down this weekend as we await the approach of another front arriving from the north Monday. Assuming it can make a clean sweep early next week it will help to temporarily provide another handful of less hot days Tuesday and Wednesday.
