Quick bout with high pressure ahead of holiday weekend
For the first time since Saturday night, we managed to dip down into the upper 70s this morning. It may be a slightly cooler, less humid start, but it will be a warmer finish to the day than what we’ve seen so far this week. A quick shower or storm is possible today, but the heat will be the bigger story - heat index will soar to about 105 before the afternoon is done, with a healthy south breeze.
The isolated chance for showers and a storm or two is possible through the end of the week, but a few more afternoon clouds and a touch higher for the weekend. Keep an eye on the sky for grilling/pool/lake plans, but any storm that pops up should be short-lived. We’ll also need to watch for a storm lasting past sunset, but we’re still expecting things to be good to go by fireworks time.
