Monday, August 5 Forecast Discussion

Another warm and muggy one across the Twin States with most of the storms so far this afternoon confined to along and west of Highway 15. We will see storms continue to develop and move southward through the early evening hours before they fall apart once they lose daytime heating.

Tomorrow starts the ushering in of even warmer air as a warm front is currently lifting northward and high pressure is building into the area. This high pressure is currently parked over Texas and has been causing excessive heat for months. We won't get as warm as parts of Texas and Oklahoma, but we will make a serious run into the mid and upper 90s by midweek, and while I am not confident enough yet to drop rain chances completely, storms will be much fewer and farther between.

This area of high pressure does not look to stay long as it looks to break down as we move into the end of the week and the weekend. The heat will not take much of a break as we will only drop a couple of degrees on our highs.
