Forecast: Staying hot with a few afternoon storms
The above-average summer heat continues today with highs on track to reach the mid-90s and “feels-like” temps in the triple digits.
The combination of drier air aloft and a ridge of high pressure will help keep temperatures high and rain chances in the isolated category.
A few storms will still fire up from the mid to late afternoon, but the overall coverage of rain will be around 40%.
Temperatures will be quite toasty again today as highs soar to the mid-90s. Heat index values will range from 103-110 degrees.
Saturday will be very similar with plenty of sun, heat, and humidity accompanied by a few afternoon storms.
We’ll see a slight uptick in rain coverage for Sunday and Monday, but it will be short-lived as more dry air arrives for next week. That batch of dry air in the atmosphere will be associated with a huge plume of Saharan dust currently traversing the Atlantic. This plume will help keep things in the tropical Atlantic quiet through next week. At home, rain chances will remain isolated with highs staying in the mid 90s.NBC2 (WBBH-TV)
