It’s still plenty hot, but fortunately, the humidity has dropped a bit, making it feel a bit more bearable outside. That being said, it’s still very hot outside. In fact, a Heat Advisory continues for much of your Tuesday evening, that is for feel like temperatures to remain in the middle 90s to 100 degrees.
Those looking for some relief, we are nearly there! Tuesday marks the 4th day of our heat wave, the forecast does call for some significant cooling, but not until Friday. Our heat wave will continue on for at least another two days, with highs in the low 90s for the 4th of July and the middle and upper 90s for the 5th of July. Our ridge oh high pressure will continue to sit firmly overhead until Thursday evening, as the ridge shifts east a cold front will move in.
Thursday will be another warm, and humid day, perfect fuel for afternoon and evening thunderstorms. A few of those storms may be on the stronger side, so having a backup plan to move any outdoor activities inside would be a good idea. Behind that cold front, temperatures will be more seasonable and refreshing! Friday we are left with a mix of sun and clouds, with highs in the low 80s. Similarly, Saturday and Sunday will feature a mix of sun and clouds as well. Still refreshing with low humidity and high temperatures in the upper 70s to lower 80s.
