Thursday 6/20 Forecast Discussion

It has been a very hot last day of spring. Temperatures this afternoon are in the upper 80s and low 90s, with heat indices ranging from 90-100. We all stayed dry today, and tomorrow looks like it will be very similar to today: a few clouds, highs around 90 with a heat index between 95-100, and very few, if any afternoon showers or storms. As we go into the weekend, our chance for a few isolated showers and thunderstorms goes up slightly, with the best chance for any afternoon convection looking to form on Sunday thanks to increased atmospheric moisture, daytime heating, and a piece of energy that should be passing over us. As we go into the workweek, we stay in a very typical summer-like pattern, with hot and humid afternoons, with a chance for a few showers and thunderstorms each day. There does not look to be anything out of the ordinary for the next week; no organized severe weather, and no tropical mischief in sight. Speaking of the tropics, Tropical Storm Barry made landfall near Veracruz, Mexico earlier today and will continue to weaken and move Westward, and will have not affect our weather what-so-ever. As summer "officially" begins, enjoy excellent pool weather!
