Isolated rain into the weekend, another heat wave looming

We’re tracking much cooler weather as we close out the work week (and the month of July). Cloud cover and sunshine will duke it out again today, with passing showers likely. The widespread rain and borderline severe storms we saw last night are long gone – expect much more scattered shower activity into the upcoming week. With the additional cloud cover and moisture around, daytime temperatures will be in the 70s and 80s today. You will definitely FEEL the difference outside, with light north breezes bringing in some more comfy air. For some context, our average high temperature for this time of the year still sits at 90° – we keep temps ‘below average’ through Sunday.

Speaking of – despite the weekend rain chances we’ll muster peeks of sunshine. Keep your outdoor weekend plans, just have an umbrella handy. Expect a couple of passing showers, but nothing widespread. High temperatures will slowly warm-up close to 90° by Sunday afternoon. Rain chances diminish by Sunday afternoon, with high levels of heat and humidity looming next week.

We’re still tracking a HEAT WAVE for the first week of August. It’s only fitting, given this past week and the relatively cooler weather as of late. Highs will soar to near triple-digit levels as early as Monday afternoon. Wall-to-wall sunshine is expected each and every day next week. Unpleasant sleeping weather will return too. Overnight lows will be quite miserable; we’re tracking them into the upper 70s by Monday night. Summer is far from over – stay tuned.

Have a great day!
