Thursday Blog: The heat continues but there is some relief -Doug

My god the heat! Geez, I’m so fed up and there have only been a few days of extreme heat. We have some relief in sight, which is good to see. However, the excessive heat warning continues on Thursday.

However, some good news for our northern counties. A few scattered showers and a few thunderstorms during the morning. Most of us stay dry.


Afternoon hot and humid again with triple digit heat.


Also pay attention to the heat index. This is the temperature your body thinks it is.

Heat Index

Thursday evening, a few more scattered thunderstorms which should affect us a little more.

Friday morning

These will still be very random, but at least more of us will have storms. On Friday, the heat continues with highs in the upper 90s near 100 degrees. The good news is that a cold front will break in and bring our temperatures down a bit for the weekend, or at least the first half of the weekend.

A look down the road: We have another cold front working next Tuesday. This will give us chances for showers and thunderstorms and will cool us into the upper 80s and lower 90s for several days during the second half of the week. However, the heat returns the week of the 17th. We begin the transition from the old Heady Pattern to the new Heady Pattern. I’m so excited to see the changes in the model over the next two months. The long term forecast is below.


Next Thursday – Saturday: Hot, but not extreme! Slight chance of thunderstorms Thursday and Friday.

July 17-July 23: Mainly a hot week again, ugh. A few scattered thunderstorms from Wednesday to Friday.

July 24-July 30: Especially on a hot week. Although we will have a slight chance of a T storm for Monday, we will keep an eye out for the gulf which may bring some moisture on Friday.

July 31-August 6: Another hot week is coming. Slight risk of thunderstorm Monday to Saturday.

August 7-August 13: Apart from a hot Sunday and Saturday, mostly hot this week. We will be watching for a slight chance of storms Sunday and Thursday.

August 14-August 20: Hot for much of the week before heading into a hot Saturday. We will be watching for a slight chance of storms Wednesday through Saturday.
