Lately it seems like the weather has been on repeat with the temperatures heating up and then cooling down and vice versa. However, it's slowly looking like things are finally beginning to settle into that summer pattern that we all despise, yet like at the same time. Today, Key Field officially rose to 94 degrees under mostly cloudy skies and some showers and storms affecting some areas and this patter is likely to be in control through the next seven days.

Overnight, the showers will quickly taper off thanks to the loss of daytime heating and then fire up once more as the heat of the day arrives. Things will slowly begin to change as a ridge builds in from the west and diminishes our rain chances and increases the heat.

The ridge looks to keep a firm grip on the Southeast through the weekend with temperatures holding steady in the lower 90s for highs and lower 70s for lows, which is typical for this time of year. Towards the end of the week, rain chances and cloud coverage increase as a series of disturbances travel across the twin states, while this will affect rain chances, temperatures will likely still stay in the 90s.

The best shot of rain looks to come both Friday and Saturday of the Ralph Morgan Rodeo, so if you are going make sure to come prepared for rain.
