Wednesday Blog: Heat sticks but rain increases. -Doug

I hope your week is going great so far and you are staying somewhat cool.  Sadly the heat is going to stick around.  I am very interested to see if the pattern breaks in 2-3 weeks.  The new Heady Pattern is in the morphing stage from last year to this years.  Then the new pattern will last for a year.  Right now we are about 15% new and 85% old.  However, if this heat breaks in 2-3 weeks, that is great news for next summer showing us we won’t have this drought and heat.  So a lot to watch.  Okay, heat advisories once again for us Wednesday.

Heat Advisory

I think most of us will top right around 100 degrees once again.

Wednesday Pm

As we work through the evening hours, scattered showers and a few thunderstorms start to pop up.

Late Evening

After midnight, I think these will become a little bit more widespread.

After Midnight

Most of these should be out of here by 8AM on Thursday morning.

Morning

So here is when we have the best rain chances.
