The 500 Hpa high pressure center will shift a little further east on Wednesday. The aforementioned pressure surface will be situated at around 594 Dm. This means that temperatures will be even hotter. This feature will be with us through Friday. As a result, expect temperatures in the 101°-105° range for this time period. These are dangerous temperatures, as they will increase the risk for heat related illness.
The weekend will see a weakening in the high pressure aloft. As a result, Saturday and Sunday will feature a few more clouds, and slightly cooler high temperatures. However, we will stay unseasonably hot and mainly dry. Sunday and Monday may even see some Isolated showers and storms.
