We did have a few little showers on Thursday, otherwise it was hazy, it was hot, and it was humid as temperatures reached well into the 90s. And that heat doesn’t look to go anywhere for the next couple days. As a matter of fact, the humidity will likely continue to climb, but our chances for some cooling t-showers will go up too.
Tonight: Fair skies, warm, and muggy with lows in the low-to-mid 70s.
Friday: Hazy, hot, and humid with hit-or-miss t-showers possible…highs in the middle 90s.
With the humidity going up and with temperatures so hot on Friday, heat index values (your feel-like temperature) could top 100 degrees along and east of the Parkway. In addition to that, any storm that does form on Friday could be on the strong-to-severe side with damaging wind and large hail looking to be the main threats.
It will stay hazy, hot, humid, and unsettled as we head into the weekend. Passing t-showers will form each afternoon and perhaps linger into the evening on both Saturday and Sunday. Temperatures will reach the middle 90s on Saturday (with heat indices once again over 100 along and east of the Parkway) and the low-to-mid 90s on Sunday. This has been in several of these write-ups this week, but it bears repetition…way to beat the heat:
- Stay indoors, in the air conditioning or if you have to be outside take frequent breaks inside or in the shade
- Stay hydrated
- Keep an eye on your pets and the elderly
- Wear light-colored, loose-fitting clothing
Monday will likely remain unstable, with scattered showers and storms in the forecast. It will stay hazy, hot, and humid for one more day with highs in the lower 90s. Once a cold front moves through on Monday, though, things will start to change a bit. Temperatures will fall into the 80s Tuesday through Thursday, with the humidity going down a little bit too. We may a slight chance for a few t-showers on Tuesday, and then again on Thursday, but it doesn’t look as rocky as what we are potentially looking at Friday through Monday. Otherwise, we are looking at partly sunny skies.
