Wednesday, June 26 Forecast Discussion

Temperatures today have climbed into the lower 90s as the heat that has been building to our west moves in our direction. We will tap into it even more for Thursday and Friday as highs will climb into the mid 90s with heat indices pushing 100 degrees. The added heat and humidity will start to subside after some potentially strong to severe storms to start the weekend.

A cold front will arrive from our northwest on Friday afternoon and evening. This front will tap into the warm and humid air and could produce strong to severe storms Friday evening. This front will stall along the Highway 84 corridor and will be the catalyst for more rain and storms on Saturday.

Once we reach Sunday, and upper level low sets up over top of us. Models are in better agreement that we will be in the middle of this system, which if this is the case, will limit rain chances for the start of July. Based on latest trends, I think this solution is what will happen so I have cut rain chances for next week. Now, this does not mean that we will not see any rain, but I do not expect to see each day in every location all day.

The main thing we will notice is much cooler temperatures, especially at night where lows will drop into the lower to mid 60s and highs will only make it to the upper 80s. As of now, it looks like this low will start to exit Wednesday into Thursday, so I am keeping my fingers crossed that the 4th will be dry.
