The hot, humid midsummer weather pattern will continue through the rest of the week, although the intense heat will ease a bit. This will be helped by more cloud cover and a few scattered storms each afternoon and evening.
This afternoon a slowly approaching front from the northwest will help to trigger more scattered thunderstorms. Afternoon highs will be in the low and mid 90s, with the heat index again reaching triple digits at times. The front will hang around the next few days, wavering north and south. This will likely change the location of the storms that develop each day, so it won’t necessarily rain in the same areas every day. However, heavy rain and gusty winds will be a threat with any storms that develop each afternoon and evening. Daytime highs through the end of the week will average in the low 90s, with the heat index potentially reaching triple digits.
A little more of a change may come over the weekend, as the front settles a little farther south. While we’ll still see a threat for daily showers and thunderstorms, temperatures should come down into the 80s for highs, with some upper 60s overnight.
In the tropics, the Atlantic basin remains very quiet!
