Thursday 7/23/20

Good morning!

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.

Tuesday 7/21/20

Good morning!

With mostly sunny skies, expect a high around 91 today, with a west-northwest wind of 5-10 mph. Tonight will be partly cloudy and 66, with a calm wind.

Wednesday will be partly sunny, with a high around 81, a northeast wind of around 5 mph, and a chance of some strong storms in the afternoon and evening into the early overnight. While the best chance for severe storms is to our west, an isolated severe storm cannot be ruled out locally. The chance of storms winds down overnight, with mostly cloudy skies, a low of 68 Wednesday night, and a mainly calm wind. Showers and storms are also possible on Thursday.

Sunday 7/19/20

Good morning!

With sunny skies and heat index values over 100 at times, expect a high around 99 today, with a southwest wind of 5-10 mph, and gusts up to 25 mph possible in the afternoon. It’s not impossible that we reach the 100 degree mark today if things run a little warmer than forecast; if that happens it would be our first 100 degree day since July 22, 2011, which reached a toasty 102 degrees. We had an awfully close brush with the 100 degree mark almost exactly a year ago, on July 20, 2019, but fell just short at 99 degrees. Either way, it’ll be very hot and a Heat Advisory is in effect, so stay cool and reduce outdoor activities if possible.

Tonight will be mostly clear and 75, with a southwest wind of 5-10 mph. (For reference, the high on Friday was 74. Lows in the 70s happen often in the summer but only getting down into the mid 70s is a lot less frequent). Monday will be mostly sunny and 94, with a west wind of 5-10 mph, heat index values around or over 100 at times, and a slight chance of an afternoon thunderstorm. Not many storms are likely to form in the region with limited forcing, but even so, a few storms could be strong to severe with heavy rainfall and strong wind gusts. Monday night will be mostly clear and 68, with a light west wind.

Going beyond that, Tuesday now looks to be in the upper 80s as opposed to the low 90s, although a 90 degree reading isn’t fully out of the running for Tuesday. The rest of the week will likely be in the mid to upper 80s.

Have a great day!
