August Looks Like July So Far

Scattered thunderstorms will be bubbling up with the heating of the day through the rest of this weekend. There’s so much heat energy available that some storms could become strong to severe with the typical summertime trio of threats: strong, gusty winds, heavy rainfall, and dangerous lightning strikes.

Thunderstorms will fade by early evening in most cases, with some lingering around until midnight some evenings. From midnight to 6 am each day the conditions should be quiet, with early morning lows around 75 degrees.

Partly sunny weather will reign in the rain-free locations with highs around 94 in the shade. The sun and the humidity will make it feel at least 10 degrees hotter than the thermometer would tell us.

Tropical development has been suppressed this year in the Atlantic by wind shear and the Saharan air layer, and it looks to stay that way for the next few days.
