Friday Blog: The heat sticks around but some storm chances. -Doug

Hey guys and gals!  I hope your week is going great!  We are almost to the weekend.  Now it is a little hot and humid, but we will see some chances for thunderstorms.  We are still in the current Heady Pattern and will stay in it for the next 3 months.  However, the pattern will start morphing from old to new here in the next 4 weeks.  I am super excited about this as I want to get rid of this pattern.  We are in the summer version of this pattern, but we are still seeing the same storm systems rotating through.  Alright, here is the reason for the heat.

Upper Levels

This large upper level high (about 18,000 feet up) is killing us.  This usually means hot, humid and mainly dry.  We do get some waves that rotate around it, but until this breaks down, we don’t see much changes.  Now the high should start to break down a bit later next week.  Hot and humid again on Friday.

Friday

Highs back into the mid 90s with the heat index right around 105 once again on Friday.

Heat Indices

Mid 90s again on Saturday, but we may get some isolated storms in here late in the day.  There is a chance that a complex could come together and rotate through Saturday evening.

Saturday

Back to the heat and the humidity for Father’s Day.  Check out the long range forecast below.

Next Friday and Saturday: Hot and humid with scattered thunderstorms.

June 26th-July 2nd:  Back to warm temperatures to start the week but the hot temps (mainly 90s) return the second half of the week.  We will have chances for a pop up PM storm just about each and every day.

July 3rd-July 9th: Hot for Sunday before we stay warm for the 4th, Tuesday and Wednesday. Then, hot temperatures return for the rest of the week. Slight t-storm chances for Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday.

July 10th-July 16th: Hot temperatures this week. Slight t-storm chances Tuesday, Friday and Saturday.

July 17th-July 23rd: Warm for Sunday and Monday before hot temperatures return for the rest of the week. Slight t-storm chances Sunday, Wednesday and Saturday.

July 24th-July 30th: With the exception of a warm Thursday and Friday, hot for the week. Slight t-storm chances Sunday through Wednesday.

July 31st-August 6th: Hot for much of the week before we back down to warm temperatures by Friday and Saturday. Slight t-storm chances Monday through Friday.
