Thursday, August 8 Forecast Discussion

A few stray storms have developed this afternoon as high pressure is still exerting its influence over us. We will keep a small chance of rain with us the next couple of days as high pressure won't weaken significantly until next week, which means our highs will remain in the lower to mid 90s, humidity will remain up, and heat indices will be over 100 degrees in the afternoon.

Starting on Monday, high pressure weakens a bit which will allow a front that will stall to our north entering the weekend to begin passing through. Tuesday and Wednesday look to be the best chances to see rain as the front passes, and some storms are not out of the question. Highs will be based on when the rain begins, so some spots may not get out of the 80s during these two days.

Once the front passes, it looks like some cooler and definitely drier air will arrive for us to start to close out the week. We will have to wait and see if this will happen and how long it will stay, but it is something to look forward to as a break to this August heat.
