Late July heat expected to take over this week
The final full week of July looks to be very July-like: Hot, humid, and generally dry. Intermittent chances for rain will exist, but nothing that will truly satisfy your lawn.
Tonight, if storms can get organized, we might be able to squeeze a few tenths of rain out before midnight. Otherwise, expect mainly cloudy skies overnight with a chance at some rain before noon on Monday. After that, we heat things up into the mid to upper 90s with passing clouds, providing us with a little bit of shade. Beyond Monday, our rain chances look rather slim as high pressure takes over and the mercury climbs into the 99-102 range for mid to late week.
Sunday Night: Mostly cloudy with a 30% chance of rain and thunderstorms. Low: 75. Wind: SSW 5-10 mph.
Monday: Mostly cloudy with a 20% chance of rain and storms before noon. High: 96. Heat index: 102°-106°. Wind: SW 5-15 mph.
Monday Night: Partly cloudy with skies clearing late. Low: 76. Wind: SSW 5-10 mph.
Tuesday: Partly cloudy early, afternoon sunshine. Hot. High: 98. Heat index: 104° - 108°. Wind: S 5-15 mph.
