WEATHER BLOG: Quickly Getting Hot
A well-defined short-wave trough will continue to cause some showers and thunderstorms to start the day across our area. This will quickly diminish however as the day goes along. The trough itself will move off shore. There will still be another shower or thunderstorm around, but the better chance will be Thursday afternoon or early evening.
It’ll be a warmer day Thursday, but the true warming moves in Friday as heights aloft build Friday afternoon to bring in some stronger westerly winds and thus a much warmer afternoon. In fact it appears we’ll approach the record of 90 set in 2001. This will probably fall short of that, but you get the idea that it will be warm.
Then the front will arrive later in the day Friday with a shower or thunderstorm along it. The thunderstorms could be strong as there will be some build of heat and humidity before the front itself causes thunderstorms to develop.
This boundary will still be nearby on Saturday and we’ll continue the threat for shower and thunderstorm activity, albeit mainly in the afternoon. On Sunday we’ll finally have enough of a dry push to get some decent sunshine and a nice afternoon.
This continues into Monday as well, but by Tuesday our next system moves in and with it will come some showers and thunderstorms.
