Chief Meteorologist Patrick Rockey’s First Warning Forecast
I sure hope you are getting out and enjoying the spectacular weather on this Tuesday, because things will be changing in a big way as we head toward the beginning of July later this week.
Wednesday is our transition day. Our winds will shift to the south sending temperatures up around 5° and humidity levels will tick up as well.
But the heat really starts to pump in on Thursday.
We expect plenty of sunshine and high temperatures in the upper 80s and lower 90s.
Humidity joins the party on Friday and Saturday. We expect high temperatures in the lower 90s with heat index values north of 100° both days.
Don’t count on showers and thunderstorms to cool things off until we get to Sunday afternoon. That’s when a cold front will start to push in bringing us a 50% chance for storms.
The 50% rain chance continues for the Fourth of July on Monday. Expect some wet weather in the morning with a chance for some thunderstorms in the afternoon.
But temperatures do ease into the low-to-mid 80s, which is a little below normal for the beginning of July.
