junes we have had in a very long time. we are watching a chance of any rain before the month is over. not looking very good. you have to wait until the weekend to get a much better chance of showers and storms. so, i guess the silver lining is it is only in the 80s . your ac gets a little break overnight tonight. it is beautiful the night. down in the 50s in the suburbs. open the windows. this afternoon, as you noticed the clouds bubbled up. we will have a chance of a few hit or miss very spotty showers so that chance really starts up around 2:00 heading into 5:00 this afternoon and we will reach the low 80s again. so, forecast highs today actually running more than a handful of degrees below average for this time of the year. enjoy it. we don't get temperatures as cool along with the low humidity very often this time of year and we will
12:18 pm
returning very shortly. here's the flip in the pattern. it is really a pattern flip. high pressure off the coast allows temperatures to build day by day and yesterday. we are going to see another heat wave returning to the area. plenty of heat, plenty of humidity. this all kicks in late this week headed into the holiday weekend. so day by day, this is how things go. this afternoon, enjoy it. isolated showers, but, the air is very dry out there. most of this is not going to reach the ground. 81 degrees. we have 70 inside the suburbs. 83 tomorrow. then, we will jump up, nearly 10 degrees by thursday. now, humidity levels also start to creep up. but they are pretty much still in check for thursday. it is friday it starts to feel very hot, very humid outside. and, into the weekend with high heat and humidity, not only are we talking about storm chances, but, we are also going to be talking about the feels like temperatures each afternoon, runs in the upper 90s for a lot of days. so fourth
12:19 pm
days do i have storms and which days do i not? this is what i am thinking now. every single day we have a chance of thunderstorms. but, right now, looks like saturday looks like a better day for thunderstorms than sunday. right now, i'm planning on scattered showers and storms for saturday with a high of 92 degrees. saturday might be that day that maybe you are briefly going to have to take the pool party inside. take a break for an hour or so. any storm that pops up this weekend will be the main threat with the thunderstorms. still in the low 90s for sunday. can't keep a dry forecast in there either. because we are still several days out, we may see the days flip-flop with which day ends up being a little more active than the other days. monday into the fourth of july, we are still keeping a few popup thunderstorms, garden variety in the afternoon both days. so hopefully, even if you have to briefly head inside, if you are on the lake or something like that, hopefully, we will be at least safe for fourth of
12:20 pm
maybe we will get to see the real ones on tv instead of the fake ones that i heard about last year. okay, let's talk about the next three days. enjoying the low humidity. enjoy the low temperatures. we are in the 80s today, 80s tomorrow. isolated showers this afternoon. and we look ahead o the next heat wave. hot, not overly humid. 91 degrees. we will keep amazing dry forecast for thursday, but the humidity is back friday. even into the fourth of july week. we'll be back in a few minutes.
