Highs Easily Top 100 Degrees TodayBy
Another record setting day is coming our way.
Highs will reach 100+ today, shattering the record of 99 from 1988. It will feel up to 115 this afternoon. An isolated storm is possible, but most spots stay bone dry. Since June first we are running 4.94″ below our normal rainfall. When you add up that too what we’ve been down since January first, we’re running 7.28″ below normal for 2012.
Tonight temps drop to the mid to upper 70s, so we won’t it will still be muggy and mild overnight.
More of the same is expected Saturday, and the excessive heat warning remains in effect until Saturday night. An isolated storm is not out of the question, but most spots remain dry. The record high for Saturday is 101 from 1936. Again, because of the humidity it will feel up 105 to 115.
The low 90s return Sunday with a 30% chance of scattered showers and storms.
The chance for rain lingers Monday as temps drop to the mid 80s. That temp is normal for this time of year.
Relief is coming in the 7 day forecast, we are done with the triple digits, and the mid to upper 80s settle in.
