Tuesday, July 16, 2019: The heat continues

Weather

FORECAST SUMMARY:

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. High temperatures will be around 100° with heat indexes in the 100° – 105° range. There will be little to no chances for rain as we head through the week.

As a trough in the jet stream passes by, north of our region, a cold front may reach far enough south to have an effect on our weather. If it does pass over the Big Country it will give us the chance for a few showers and thunderstorms. Confidence isn’t great in this cold front moving through so for now, for Monday, a 20% chance for showers and thunderstorms is appropriate. The temperature will also cool off slightly.
