Heat Advisory through Thursday & Hot Holiday Weekend Ahead
Heat Advisory Will Likely Expire, But the Heat Isn't Backing Off
It will continue to be hot, humid, and breezy tomorrow with highs between 95 and 100 degrees with heat index values continuing between 100-110 degrees. That’s why we still have a Heat Advisory in place through Thursday at 7pm. Overnight the cloud cover will increase again and we will start out with plenty of cloud cover early on Thursday but it gives way to sunshine for the afternoon and winds will be out of the south, about 10 to 15 mph with occasional higher gusts.
Moving into the weekend, it will remain seasonably hot and humid, with highs mostly in the 90s. Humidity drops a tad but our air temperatures rise to around 100 degrees Friday and Saturday. Remember to take frequent breaks in the shade or air conditioning and avoid alcohol. Drink water or water-based drinks instead to remain hydrated. For those planning outdoor activities and watching fireworks. most storm activity east of I-35 should dissipate fairly quickly after nightfall each day. It will not be a rain-out, but be leery of heavy downpours and nearby lightning strikes. Areas west of I-35 should remain rain and storm-free.
There will still be some more Saharan Dust over the next few days so you’ll probably notice some haze to the sky for the next few days too. The ridge of high pressure responsible for the increasing temperatures will slide westward early next week. Temperatures will drop into the mid 90s for the start of next week with maybe a stray shower or two in the afternoon. High pressure is expected to build again late next week and temperatures will go right back up again to near 100°.
