Thursday, August 7 Forecast Discussion

Pop-up showers and storms have again developed this afternoon and are trekking across the viewing area. Those will fall apart after sunset tonight as has been the case for the last several days. Locations that see rain will see humidity spike after the rain but will also see a temperature drop. Highs so far today have climbed into the upper 90s for most locations, especially those that have remained dry.

We look to stay in the upper 90s through the first part of the weekend as the heat and humidity build and high pressure looks to limit rain chances to just the pop-up variety. The best rain chance this weekend is on Sunday when a few more isolated showers and storms may develop.

The start of next week will see highs start off in the middle 90s with plenty of humidity and afternoon pop-up storms around. Things look like they start to chance as we head towards the end of the week as our area of high pressure looks to start to break down, allowing some cooler air from our north to attempt to arrive for the end of the week. As of now, there are plenty of things that can change, but I am optimistic that our heat wave will at least abate late next week as highs return to at least the lower 90s.

No major rain chances are in the forecast, but rain chances look to pick up Wednesday and Thursday as a series of disturbances pass to our north.
