More heat and humidity with another shot for rain and thunderstorms

Posted: Updated:

Good Wednesday.  Today will basically be a repeat of Tuesday as highs get up to about 90, and we sit in the middle of a pool of muggy, humid air.  Heat index values will be in the mid to upper 90s.  We will also have more scattered thunderstorms developing through the afternoon and evening hours.  Some of them could produce gusty winds and lots of lightning along with the heavy rain.

Thursday will actually be much warmer with the high reaching the mid-90s.  The trade-off, though, is the humidity will actually be much lower.  Friday the humidity will stay lower, but the temperature will also be dropping back to about 90, so it should be a fairly nice end to the week.  A front will be moving through Friday, so I think we will see quite a few clouds, but the chance for rain Friday will be less than 20%.

The weekend looks amazing.  Highs will hover around 90, but the humidity will remain low and skies will be sunny.  Mornings will be especially nice with temps in the mid to upper 60s.

    Good Thursday.  We have another bitterly cold start today with temps in the low to mid 10s this morning.  Fortunately, our winds are fairly calm this morning so wind chill won't be as much of an issue heading out.

    The roads will be very slick including interstates and main city roads Tuesday night because of these cold temperatures. So travel should be discouraged.
