Good morning to you! Is it safe to say that we all are ready for this trend of showers and storms to come to an end? Today, we will have a much deserved break from it, but conditions will resume as we near the end of the work week. On the bright side, summertime storms make for beautiful photos! Check out the one below taken by our founder, Landon!
Outlook for Today
For the day, we will have high pressure on our team, fighting off chances of precipitation for our community. Because of this, we will have a breath of fresh air from the stormy trend we have had this past week. We can’t rule out a brief shower in the afternoon, but other than that, expect nothing more but a day filled with sunshine.
What we won’t get a break from is the summertime heat and humidity. With temperatures peaking in the upper 80’s and dew points in the lower 70’s, the heat index will reach the lower 90’s. Therefore, if you are out and about, it is important to have a water on hand to stay hydrated.
Mother Nature Goes Back to Her Old Ways
For the rest of the work week, the chances of showers and storms will be back in the forecast and increasing with each day. For Thursday, these will be isolated in the afternoon, but conditions will remain sunny, with increasing clouds into the night. For Friday, these will become scattered for the entirety of the day, promoting a gradual increase of cloud cover throughout the day.
Any showers or storms produced on Thursday will remain on the light side of precipitation totals. That is not the case with Friday. Our main concern will be with heavy rainfall paired with gusty winds from the passage of a low pressure system to our north.
Moreover, the abundance of sunshine, high temperatures, and high dew points will have both heat and ultraviolet (UV) indices on the rise. If you spend time outdoors, make sure to take precautions by having sunblock (SPF 15+), protective clothing and accessories, and water on hand.
