Our warm/humid air mass slightly breaks down with the entrance of a cold front out of the west today. This will allow us to drop our afternoon high temperatures to the lower 90s instead of hovering within the mid and upper 90s like we have been the past few days.

The storm threat isn’t likely until we progress to late in the day between the time we’re getting done with work and heading to bed. There is an opportunity for severe weather, with the risk being marginal, which is rather low. But staying weather alert is a wise choice through the overnight. These isolated storms may produce wind gusts over 60 mph and an opportunity to develop hail. Tornado development is very low at this time, but we’ll continue to monitor throughout the day for any changes.

This morning, upper 70s and lower 80s will be coming along with breezy to gusty conditions. Those gusts will remain through the afternoon ranging between 20 and 30 mph. We’ll linger forward with a small threat for isolated storms and week showers Thursday night into Friday morning but overall, nothing too aggressive.

Our forecast then will turn back to the heat. Low to mid 90s will be common to end the work week, and for Father’s Day Sunday, daytime highs are back to the upper 90s. Currently, there is not a heat advisory in place. However, we do expect some form of alert moving from the end of the weekend into the next business week. By the time we reach Tuesday, we amplify a warm moist air mass from the southwest and increased temperatures to 100 degrees are expected. This may create excessive heat watches or warnings during the afternoon on Tuesday.

We will continue to track the heat through the next several days, but be aware a serious summer heat pattern is developing.
