The rain moved through last night and some lucky areas got a really good dose of water. Others, however, will probably say they got nothing or it wasn’t enough.
The above numbers are as of 5p Saturday. As I always say, your mileage may vary, these are just the reports from the official NWS sites and do not reflect amounts for an entire city.
I don’t think we’ll see rain on Sunday, but chances return for Monday night into Tuesday and then again on Wednesday. Once we get into the second half of the week, it could really turn warm. Indications from the model guidance today suggests low to middle 90s are a safe bet.
Why is the heat finally showing up all of the sudden? Our pattern will shift a bit and allow an area of high pressure to build over the Southern and Central U.S. by the middle of the week. This is the “typical” setup that allow us to cook during the summer months. Some weather folk will call this the “Summer Heat Ridge”.
It forces the storm track farther North and allows us to see highs climb into the 90s. We’ve been lucky so far this summer, but our luck may be running out. Might be a good idea to have the A/C serviced or checked. We’ve not had a full week of 90-degree-or-higher temps this year.
As you watch our newscasts over the next few days, you may notice some small changes. Don’t worry; we are working on something very cool for you. Hang with us and see what we have in store.
Hope you all have a nice weekend,
