Stray Rain, Widespread Heat Headed into the Holiday Weekend
After another mild and muggy start, we'll finish Thursday a little toasty, but bearable, with heat index only hovering right around 100°, and actual air temp in the mid 90s with plenty of sunshine. Friday brings back another dose of humidity, which could contribute to an isolated shower or two in the late afternoon.
4th of July Weekend plans? A very small, isolated shower chance arrives off and on Friday through Sunday (10% to 20%). Otherwise, temperatures are on their way to the warmer side of 90°. More moisture arrives meaning the heat index approaches 110°...and could exceed it on Independence Day. What may be helpful -- looks like a decent breeze out of the south and southwest arrives for the first half of next week.
Thursday: Mostly sunny. High: 95. Wind: ENE 5-10 mph.
Thursday Night: Mostly clear. Low: 75. Wind: E 5 mph.
Friday: Morning sun, afternoon sun/cloud mix. Slight chance for a few showers. High: 95. Wind: SE 5-10 mph.
