Wednesday, July 17, 2019: Another hot day… southerly breeze

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 through the weekend will be sunny and hot. High temperatures will be around 100° with heat indexes in the 97° – 103° range. There will be little to no chances for rain as we head through the week. Practice heat safety. Take frequent breaks in air conditioned areas, stay hydrated, wear loose fitting and light colored clothing, and never leave your child or pet in a parked car.

A trough over the eastern United States is forecast to deepen early next week. At the same time high pressure will strengthen to our north northwest. This will put us in a northerly flow with the possibility of a cold front passing through our area giving us the chance for a few showers and thunderstorms. For now a 20% chance for showers and thunderstorms for the Monday evening into Tuesday is appropriate. The temperature will also cool off slightly.
