Goodness, it’s a steamy start to the day. A few showers and even a quick rumble or two have been able to pop up so far this morning, mainly south. Most of us won’t see that activity, but we’ll give it another go this afternoon as daytime heating hopefully sparks up some rain-cooled relief by the end of the day. We’ll keep a good 30% chance for rain/storms through about 9pm this evening, then we very likely shut the faucet off through the end of this coming weekend.

Speaking of, other than a stray shower or storm tomorrow, there’s not any relief coming our way until next week. High pressure tightens its grip and afternoon highs approach the triple digit mark Saturday and Sunday. Of course, heat index needs to be mentioned for the weekend, with “feels like” temps reach up to 110 both weekend days. Not anything we haven’t seen each summer, but it’ll be the first time in a while we’ve been this hot. Stay cool! Our next shot at rain comes as a weak front nears the area early next week.
