THIS EVENING AND TONIGHT: Very hot through the evening, with temperatures in the 90s until sunset. Most of the night temperatures will be in the 80s before dropping into the upper 70s before sunrise.
WEATHER AWARE – EXCESSIVE HEAT
THURSDAY, and FRIDAY:
As upper air high pressure continues to build and strengthen over the Central and Southern US, our very hot and dry pattern will continue and intensify. High temperatures will reach triple digits in many spots over the course of the second half of the week, with the heat index climbing to 110° or more in many spots.
Evening temperatures will be in the upper 80s and low 90s, meaning that it will still be very hot for outdoor activities planned in the evening to try and beat the heat. The first week of High School Football will be incredibly hot, so stay as cool as you can and drink plenty of water.
Overnight lows in the upper 70s to around 80° so we don’t really get any relief overnight.
WEEKEND OUTLOOK: Saturday remains quite hot, with highs in the upper 90s and a few low 100s. By Saturday afternoon, a slim chance for a downpour returns to the forecast, but even calling this rain chance 10% is probably generous to your odds of seeing rain. Mostly, the same hot weather continues. We finally see a little relief from the heat on Sunday with highs in the low to mid 90s, with a few very isolated afternoon and evening downpours.
NEXT WEEK: The upper air high breaks down and moves to our west next week, leading to the return of isolated storm chances and a drop in temperatures closer to normal for this time of year.
