A ridge of high pressure covers the eastern third of the country. This will keep our weather very hot through Tuesday. Highs in the mid 90s combined with elevated dew points near 70 will produce a heat index approaching 100 from time to time. Although a storm may pop, rain coverage will remain less than 20%.
By Wednesday our weather pattern becomes more active as a front stalls in the area. This will bring a daily chance for showers and storms through Saturday..
Summer begins at 6:07 am this coming Thursday June 21st. More hot weather is on tap later next weekend into the following week once the rain chances taper off.
TONIGHT: Fair. Low 76. Wind: Light.
MONDAY: Partly cloudy, hot and humid. (Rain chance less than 20%). High 94. Wind: SW 5-10 mph.
TUESDAY: Partly cloudy, hot and humid. (Rain chance less than 20%). High 95. Wind: WSW 5-15 mph.
