Monday morning video forecast
The steam machine is up and running this week.
Today & Tonight: The new week is starting out with more heat and humidity. Skies will be mostly sunny as temperatures climb into the low 90s. Don’t forget to tack on a few more degrees for a heat index. There will be no cooldown showers today. Temperatures tonight will be in the low 70s.
Up Next: The regular summertime humidity will stick around through the week. Temperatures will continue to trend in the low 90s with the heat index in the upper 90s. We should be able to avoid the triple digit heat even without any cooldown showers. This patter will repeat until Thursday. Then, a few isolated showers will return in the afternoon hours. Isolated showers will be in the forecast every afternoon through the weekend. These summery storms can pack a punch with a quick heavy downpour, frequent lightning, and gusty winds. We are not tracking any total washouts. Click here to see the 7-day forecast.
