It’s another very warm and humid start to our day. Temperatures and dew points are starting in the upper 60s and low to mid 70s this morning, much like we saw yesterday and once again it will heat up very quickly after the sun rises. Air temps will be moving quickly through the 70s and into the mid and upper 80s by the lunch hour. Temps will rise into the 90s through much of the afternoon and with the high humidity levels the heat index will be 5-10+ degrees warmer than the actual air temps. With more waves of low pressure riding along the front lingering to our south we will have some more scattered showers and thundershowers popping up but they should be just your garden variety and not nearly as strong or intense as yesterday afternoon’s storms. Not much change as we head into the day Thursday as we will have another round of scattered showers popping up during the heat of the day and high temps back well into the 80s to near 90°.
Friday and the weekend are looking pretty good with high pressure building in but still a chance for a spotty afternoon shower trying to pop up.
It’s still that time of year that I need to remind folks to please, NEVER leave your kids or pets in the car. The interior of your car will heat up extremely quickly and reach dangerous, if not deadly, levels in a very short period of time. If you want to take the dog for a car ride than make it a dedicated ride for them, don’t stop for groceries or to pick something up. It only takes a few minutes for the temperature in your vehicle to reach those dangerous levels. If you have a small child be sure you double check the back seat when you get out.
