Front to ease heat and bring some rain

Futurecast

Cold front to bring chance for t’storms and and end to the heat wave.  Below normal temperatures to stick around through next week.  More rain possible late next week.

Thursday proved to be another very hot day as temperatures soared into the mid to upper 90s. Heat index values once again eclipsed 105 degrees.  We will begin to take the edge off of the heat Friday as a cold front approaches from the north.  Expect more clouds and cooler temperatures across the northern half of the area.  This is where we will see the best shot for some scattered showers and thunderstorms Friday afternoon and evening.  Severe weather is looking unlikely and it is likely that the rain will not be for everyone.  Look for that rain threat to gradually shift to the south Friday night into Saturday. 

Sunshine will return behind the front Sunday as temperatures will be much cooler despite the sun.  Look for highs Sunday in the upper 80s to low 90s.  Thanks to some drier air, overnight lows will also be cooler with morning temperatures likely dipping into the upper 60s to lower 70s.  These below normal temperatures will likely stick around through most of next week as upper level high pressure stays well to our west.

Models are still hinting at another disturbance that could bring another shot at some rain by the end of the week.  This system will also reinforce the below normal temperatures as highs late next week will remain near 90.

Average high/low for today’s date: 94/73.
