Wednesday to be the hottest day in 7 months - CM 🤓
This is likely going to be the hottest day we've had in 7 months, with highs reaching the upper 80s and lower 90s by the afternoon. The area of high pressure that kept things so comfortable earlier this week is now south of us. The wind around this system will come in out of the west. This west wind down the mountains will heat things up and dry things up.
THURSDAY AND FRIDAY
A weak and slow-moving front from the north will be able to spark some scattered showers and thunderstorms each afternoon and evening. These would likely move slowly, so localized flash flooding will be possible. Highs Thursday will be in the 85-90°. Friday's highs will be in the low to mid 80s.
Another slow-moving cold front could trigger some hit-or-miss storms Saturday afternoon and evening. Otherwise, we'll keep it warm and a bit humid. Highs will be in the mid to upper 80s. Come Sunday, we'll likely be drier with this front to our south. Highs reach around 80-86°. I don't think this weekend will be a washout by any means, but we'll need to have a Plan B for any storms that develop Saturday.
EARLY NEXT WEEK
Most of Monday and Tuesday look just fine; typically warm and humid. Highs each day will reach the upper 70s and low to mid 80s. If we see any showers, it would likely be across the southern Blue Ridge. This has to do partially with where Tropical Storm Cristobal goes.
Cristobal is currently in the Bay of Campeche and will approach the Gulf Coast this weekend. It's likely that an area of high pressure nudges it west of here, meaning that any remnant impacts would hold off until mid-to-late next week.
