Approaching a very hot weekend 5:00 a.m. Friday 22 August 2014
Well we are definitely starting to notice how that ridge of high pressure dominates our weather conditions. Today, high temperatures will average in the upper 90s with mostly sunny skies and the heat index will once again be in the 100s. The wind will be from the south up to about 20mph and will remain from the south all through the weekend. This weekend is where we are expecting to peak with our hottest temperatures before the cold front gets here Wednesday evening. Temperatures could reach the triple digits and of course then it will feel even hotter out there with the heat index. We will fast forward to Wednesday because up until then we will just be sunny and hot. Wednesday’s highs will still average in the mid to upper 90s as the cold front isn’t shown to get here until possibly the evening, where then we will have a 20% chance for scattered showers and thunderstorms. This will continue into Thursday and here is where the front will help us out with the temps, it will bring us down to the lower 90s and even a few places could reach the upper 80s.
Tonight: Low around 75 with mostly clear skies Saturday: Sunny… 75/98 Sunday: Sunny… 74/99 Monday: Sunny… 73/98 Tuesday: Mostly Sunny… 74/96 Wednesday: Partly Cloudy… 75/96 with a 20% chance for showers/t-storms Thursday: Partly Cloudy… 72/92 with a 20% chance for showers/t-storms
Have a great weekend! Wava Denito Weather Authority/News 12
