Monday, July 15, 2019: Hot and dry week

Weather

FORECAST SUMMARY:

As high pressure remains to our west we will be put in a light north northwest flow. Subsidence will dominate our area today, as a result mostly sunny skies will prevail. Far southwestern fringes of moisture from tropical depression Barry may impact our far southeastern counties this afternoon and evening. Because of this, there is a conditional slight chance for a rain shower or thunderstorm in our far southeastern counties during this time frame.

Upper level ridging will increase as we head throughout the week. A thermal ridge will hang out just to our west as well. As a result this week will be sunny and hot. Heat indexes will be in the 100° – 105° range as well. There will be little to no chances for rain as we head through the week.
