Still hot, but relief around the corner. -Doug
Sunday Evening

Good Thursday night/Friday morning!  I hope you have had a fantastic week.  We are rolling right through and almost Fathers Day weekend.  I have been in town since last Friday’s storms and head back to Seattle for the last week of treatment on Saturday.  I am looking forward to getting out of this heat.  People start freaking in Seattle when it hits 80 degrees, lol.  I am like, come on!!!!   Anyways, you guys have to deal with it for three more days, then some relief.  Overall, it will be a hot humid summer, but we will have our breaks.  We are in the final stages of this current Heady Pattern and just 3 months away from the new one to form.

Friday

Hot and humid once again on Friday, carbon copy.  Plus the heat indices will be up there again.

Heat Indices

Much of the same on Saturday.  Hot humid, mid 90s with heat index around 102-105.  Oh and Sunday.  But we do have some changes.  First off the tropics.

Tropics

 

Looks like we have a tropical storm developing in the Gulf.  Now this will stay in the SE US, but it does start to open up the Gulf for us to get some moisture that combines with our upper level high breaking down.

Upper Levels

Here is your wonderful heat source.  That upper High is giving us hot, humid and mainly dry conditions.  When it breaks down, we can get some cold fronts in here and moisture.  Look at the Jet getting stronger in the northern Plains.  This is the beginnings of the High breaking down.  Now we still have 3 more hot days, then the changes.  A cold front slides in late evening on Sunday.  Fathers Day again hot and humid but some scattered thunderstorms Sunday night and Monday morning.

Sunday Evening

Now some of these could pack a punch and be strong to severe with wind and hail.  We will keep our eyes on those the next couple of days.  However, cooler temperatures work in for about 3 days before we warm back up late next week.  Check out my long range forecast below.

Next Friday and Saturday:  Heating back up!  Some scattered thunderstorms on both days.

June 27th-July 3rd:  A warm start to the week but then just hot and humid.  Thunderstorms on Sunday and Monday, then again Thursday into the holiday weekend.

July 4th-10th:  A hot and humid week with thunderstorm chances on the 4th and 5th, then again late in the week and into the weekend.

July 11th- 17th:  A little cooler to start the week with scattered thunderstorms on Sunday.  A hot middle and then warm end to the week.  Thunderstorms back in the weekend of the 17th.
