7/29 – Rob’s “Heat Advisory” Thursday Morning Forecast
More of the same hot, muggy weather is expected to continue for the next couple of days.
Afternoon and early evening showers will be possible over the next few days, with a slight elevation in precip chances into the weekend. These showers will be isolated to scattered, and the main risks will be gusty winds, frequent lightning, and locally heavy rainfall inside thunderstorm development. Additionally, heat will be a main concern as we move into the next few days. A heat advisory is in effect from 9am to 7pm today and Friday as the heat index temperatures could reach 105 to 110 degrees. It will be very important for people to stay hydrated while spending time outside over the next few days. Afternoon showers could provide some reprieve from the heat, but overall, given the abundant moisture present, it will be hot for most of the area.
Saturday and Sunday, summertime pattern continues over the area. Scattered showers and storms will be possible, mainly during the afternoon hours. Monday and Tuesday, another familiar pattern returns to potentially enhance rain chances again. An upper level low pressure system is expected to move through the area and set up a lingering boundary, enhancing rain chances for the region. Some southerly winds will act to enhance lifting in the atmosphere next week. Rainfall rates could be fairly high these two days, and heavy rainfall will be a threat from this system moving through. This will also bring a cool-down with temperatures dropping back into the upper 80s.
