With partly sunny skies today, expect a high around 88, with a southwest wind of 5-10 mph. There is a chance of strong and severe thunderstorms this afternoon and evening, with damaging wind gusts being the main severe weather hazard. Hail is also possible. As usual, heavy rain and lightning are also expected.
Of course, as things often turn out when we have elevated severe weather risk days like today, I am working this afternoon and evening, therefore my ability to put out updates will be very limited at best. Keep an eye on the weather, including any possible warnings, this afternoon and evening. The bulk of the activity will likely be from the mid afternoon to early evening, although severe storms are possible outside of that timeline. The severe threat will likely be over by just after sunset, but a few additional showers and storms are possible during the early overnight. The low will be around 70 tonight, with otherwise mostly cloudy skies and a light southwest wind, eventually turning to a light northwest wind.
Friday will be partly cloudy and 87, with a light north-northwest wind. Friday night will be partly cloudy and 64, with a calm wind. Going beyond that, a 3 or 4 day heat wave is possible with highs in the 90s likely Sunday and Monday. Saturday and Tuesday will most likely be right around the 90 degree marker though, and if both days stay below 90, that means no heat wave.
Have a great day!
