TUESDAY UPDATE: Are you enjoying today's warm temperatures? Today, highs got into the mid and upper 80's for much of SNE with low humidity. That is all about to be replaced with cooler weather with the chance of rain showers tomorrow before we really start to heat way up for this weekend and into early next week. We have the beginnings of what could be an extended intense heat wave on the way to the eastern part of the lower 48. We could be talking about a real heat wave with temperatures getting well into the 90's for three or more consecutive days. We could be talking mid and upper 90's by the time we are all said and done by early to the middle part of next week. First, tomorrow we will have some rain showers to contend with. The rain will begin in earnest after noontime and we will see a general rainfall with a few embedded heavier downpours. That should come to an end later in the evening and overnight to yield a partly cloudy, yet cool Thursday with onshore winds. Highs will be in the mid 60's for eastern SNE with low 70's well inland. Friday is the day before the real heat, around 80, before we get baking for the weekend. Low 90's by Saturday and mid 90's as we head into the latter half of the weekend and into early next week.
If you haven't put in that A/C yet, I suggest you get it in in the next couple of days. It's going to be dangerous heat and humidity this weekend. Only a few more days to get prepared.
