Happy Football Friday! Temperatures are in the upper-60s and low-70s this morning as another hot day is shaping up across our area. Highs will climb to near 100 degrees this afternoon under mostly sunny skies. There will be a chance of a pop-up storm this afternoon and early evening, but no widespread activity is expected as you head to the high school football games tonight. Bring the rain gear just in case a shower or storm arrives in your area at the start of the games, but you will most likely just be able to leave the rain gear in your car. Drink some water at the games and try to avoid sugary drinks because temperatures will be in the upper-80s to low-90s when the games begin.
We'll be a little bit cooler heading into the weekend, but highs will still stay above average. There will be a chance of storms Saturday and Sunday afternoon, but most spots will remain dry. Earlier this week we were watching a tropical wave near the Bahamas for potential impacts to our area, but it's starting to look increasingly likely that we will not see impacts from this disturbance.
That means we'll see low rain chances heading into next week with high temperatures still staying above average. Highs will be in the low-90s on Monday and then the mid-90s by Tuesday and Wednesday. Clouds will increase into our Thursday as southerly flow increases across our area. High temperatures will "cool"-off back into the low-90s on Thursday.
