A Very Hot Holiday; Scattered Storms Sun Night/Monday
4:40 p.m. Thursday 30 June 2016
Thunderstorms firing up in Colorado are expected to drift southeastward tonight and into Friday around the eastern edge of weakening upper level high pressure. These could reach northernmost Texoma late tonight into Friday morning, but it looks now like most areas in the News 12 viewing area will not see rain tonight or tomorrow.
For the Holiday weekend, the big story will be temperatures in the mid to upper 90s and Heat Indexes of 104 to 108 degrees. There’s no rain in my Saturday or Sunday forecast, but a chance for showers or a few thunderstorms returns to the outlook Sunday night and Monday as a weak upper trough moves around the top of the high.
The upper high strengthens by the middle of next week, cutting off any chance of rain and leaving us with highs close to 100 and very humid conditions.
Here are the numbers:
Tonight: Mostly clear….Lows 68 to 74
Friday: 20% Showers, mostly sunny…..Highs 94 to 98
Saturday: Mostly sunny…..75/98
Sunday: Mostly sunny, 30% Storms Evening/Night…..76/98
Independence Day: 20% Thunderstorms…..76/97
Tuesday: 20% Showers…..75/98
Wednesday: Mostly sunny…..77/99
Thursday: Mostly sunny…..78/99
