The calendar says June 3rd but it will feel more like late July. The moisture from last week’s showers is still here and this moisture combined with the heat will make for some very uncomfortable afternoons. Don’t forget to drink plenty of fluids if you plan on being outside for extended periods of time, as dehydration can set in very quickly in this heat.

Things have been quiet on radar this afternoon as peak heating has come and gone, but it has been a very muggy day with temperatures reaching the upper 80’s this afternoon. We can expect this warm spell to continue through the next few days as we are expected to see the warmest temperatures of the year by Saturday (great time to hit the pool or beaches).

Warm, moist air that is in place gives us the chance seeing pop up showers in the afternoon hours. These storms are usually very short lived, but can produce heavy rain and lightning over their short lifespan.

Bottom line…this is very much so a summer-like pattern we are seeing and it is expect to continue to be that way for the next several days.
