The first day of summer isn't until this Saturday, but the summer-like weather pattern will be in full swing all week long. High pressure is once again dominating the south and the weather. Temperatures will be warm, and afternoon heating could spark a few afternoon showers and thunderstorms.

Through the day today expect temperatures to climb into the lower 90’s with very little cloud cover. During the afternoon hours, close to peak heating, is when we will see the most cloud cover and rain chance. Summer showers are generally going to be non severe and can produce locally heavy rains during their short lifespan. Lightning can often times be the biggest danger with these storms as it usually happens during our outdoor activities and you should always take lightning seriously. Remember: When roars, go indoors.

Temps will increase a little bit through the next couple of the days, threatening to reach the mid 90’s for a few days; meanwhile, our lows will remain in the upper 60s and lower 70s for the next 7 days. Any relief from the day time heat will have to come from afternoon showers as we will remain beneath mostly clear skies through the 7 day period.

Bottom Line: It is going to be a beautiful week with ample sunshine and only isolated showers
