Thursday night blog: The heat continues but thankfully changes

The heat continues but thankfully changes

Good Thursday evening!  The week is rolling right on by with the heat and humidity.  The weather has been pretty boring this week but I do know most people like the boring weather.  However, the heat and humidity isn't fun.  We have had plenty of sunshine as all the storms have stayed north and east of us.  

Take a look at the radar below.

We will continue to be hot and dry the next couple of days.  Our temperatures are about where we should be for this time of the year.  It is the humidity which is killing us.  When you get dewpoints up into the 70s, that is when we get the high heat index.  

This weather continues into the weekend with changes working into the area on Sunday.  

 This will give us some scattered thunderstorms on Sunday evening lasting into Monday morning.  The best news is this front should drop through and drop our temperatures back into the low to mid 80s most of next week with lower humidity.  Check out my long range forecast below for the rest of the summer.
