Overdue Carwash, Sprinklers Set Soon
Maybe not just yet, but we're very close to returning to typical late summer weather just in time to start September. We'll see more sunshine than days past today, but a good shot at some afternoon showers and storms still lurks in the forecast, especially for our southern counties. Grab the umbrella just in case, but keep the sunglasses and the AC close as well.
By midweek, that solid rain chance runs astray, and all the sudden it's just a chance for an isolated afternoon summer thunderstorm through the rest of the week. Temperatures climb into the mid 90s, so you can bet heat index will climb right with it into the triple digits. A weak front approaches our area by the end of the week, which could bring a bit better coverage of rain by Friday evening while most still stay dry.
Tuesday: Partly cloudy with a 30% chance of rain and thunderstorms in the afternoon. High: 92. Wind: ENE 5-10 mph.
Tuesday Night: Partly cloudy. Low: 75. Wind: NE 5 mph.
Wednesday: Partly cloudy with an isolated chance for rain. High: 94. Wind: NNE 5-10 mph.
Wednesday Night: Partly cloudy. Low: 76. Wind: NE 5 mph.
