Friday, June 14 Afternoon Forecast Discussion
Temperatures are running the same to slightly warmer today than they were yesterday as we transition between our last blast of Spring to the return of Summertime conditions around the area. We will see temperatures warmer tonight than the middle to upper 50s many of us saw this morning as we return to the lower 60s, still below average, by Saturday morning.
Highs on Saturday will reach the lower to middle 90s with a pop-up storm possible in the afternoon. The best chance of said storm will be south of Interstate 20. Pop-up storms continue on Father's Day with highs remaining in the middle 90s and heat index values between 95 and 100.
Better rain chances of seeing isolated storms each afternoon arrives on Tuesday as a couple of upper level lows begin to pass through the area. We will have to watch any thunderstorm complexes that develop to our north or west as they may survive after sunset and keep rain around any night, but that will have to be a day by day type of look. For now, highs will remain in the lower to middle 90s with lows in the 70s and those isolated afternoon storms. If humidity can rise enough during the day, coupled with warm enough temperatures, our heat index could top 100 an afternoon or two through the back half of next week.
