Needed showers, then heat to return.
A warm front is slowly approaching the state. That front is responsible for the clouds and spotty rain/showers that have broken out Friday. Expect on and off light rain or showers around the state Friday night into Saturday. There is the chance for a thunderstorm, but more of this is going to be rain and showers.
While it’s been so hot lately, it’s been dry. Our rainfall deficit is now up to -8.37″ for the year. That front won’t lift north of the state until Saturday, so scattered showers and even a few thunderstorms will be around again Saturday.
Temperatures will be close to average again Saturday, which is 88 degrees. However, once this warm front clears us, those temperatures are going to climb. We will top out in the 90s Sunday, then be in the upper 90s Tuesday and Wednesday.
During that time, there is a varying chance for thunderstorms. The cold front part of the storm will swing by to our north Sunday, kicking off some thunderstorms later in the day. Then, we get into that hot pattern where occasional late-day thunderstorms will pop up. A new front will try to move our way Wednesday or Thursday, increasing those thunderstorm chances again.
