Live update Wednesday 830pm:
Two more mild nights before temperatures return to normal. Above normal temperatures return next week. Rain could return by the middle of next week.
Wednesday was a mostly sunny and hot day with below normal temperatures. We started the day with lows in the 60s and returned to the upper 80s to low 90s. We will see another clear and rather cool night for this time of year tonight. Look for overnight lows to dip into the low to mid 60s. We could even see a few upper 50s over the northern edge of the area. Daytime temperatures will likely return to normal Thursday and will likely warm up even more by the beginning of next week when highs return to the upper 90s.
The upper level disturbance that has produced our recent rains has shifted to the east but should stall and ease back towards us as it weakens during the next few days. This will continue our rather dry weather through Friday. Some models do indicate that this feature could drift enough to the west that it may trigger a t’storm or two this weekend.
As of right now, rainfall chances look very low. We could see the chance for rain increase by the middle of next week as another upper level disturbance settles over the eastern half of the country. Stay Tuned!
Average high/low for today’s date: 94/73.
