Thursday, June 13 Morning Forecast Discussion

By  | 

Happy Thursday! A weak and dry cold front is passing through our area this morning, and this will bring in a reinforcing shot of drier air. We’ll see much less cloud cover today compared to the past couple of days and thus we look to reach the mid-80s for highs under mostly sunny skies. Clear skies and calm winds tonight thanks to a high pressure system moving through our area will help temperatures cool-off rather quickly overnight. We should be mainly in the mid-to-upper-50s by sunrise Friday morning.

The high pressure system will shift to our east throughout the day on Friday, and this will bring back southerly flow across our area. This means we’ll warm up to the upper-80s by Friday afternoon; however, a noticeable increase in the humidity factor won’t arrive until Saturday. A warm front will lift up from our south on Saturday and this may touch off a pop-up shower or storm south of Interstate-20 in the afternoon. Otherwise, expect partly cloudy skies, muggy conditions, and highs in the low-90s for Saturday.

Sunday will be the warmest day of the next seven, with highs expected to climb into the mid-90s. We’ll see partly cloudy skies that day with a chance of a pop-up shower or storm area-wide. Chances for pop-up showers and storms will continue Monday through Wednesday, with partly to mostly cloudy skies each day. Highs will be in the low-90s during this time frame with morning lows in the low-70s.
