Plenty of time to find a pool this weekend
As high pressure continues to sit overhead into the weekend, we’ll hold onto the muggy and hot conditions for the next few days (but overall a calmer weekend than what we’ve seen over the past few weekends!). Saturday morning cloud cover burns off throughout the day, with noticeably more sunshine in-store by the late afternoon hours. That will help daytime highs head for the low-to-mid 90s with heat index values in the triple digits likely. Plenty of pool time will be found this weekend -- but with the toasty outlook in store, make sure to stay hydrated and wear plenty of sunscreen!
Sunday is more of the same, excluding the chance for a stray pop up shower/storm by the afternoon thanks to a bit of daytime heating. Thermometers climb into the mid 90s Sunday afternoon after starting off the morning in the mid 70s. As the ridge of high pressure slides westward into the beginning of next week, we’ll introduce a daily, isolated chance for rain into the forecast for the majority of the upcoming week, but not everyone gets tagged by the rain each day. Something else to monitor into next week: the Gulf of Mexico for potential tropical development. Details are still pretty fuzzy at this point, but we should get a clearer picture on what impacts (if any) this potential system would have on our area by early next week. If impacts are in the cards, we would be looking in the Fathers Day Weekend-to-just beyond time frame. Keep checking back on that outlook over the next few days and into early next week, but for now -- enjoy the weekend!
