THE HEAT IS ON… FORECASTERS ARE PREDICTING A THREE DAY HEAT WAVE

If you have yardwork to do this weekend, I would suggest that you do it on Saturday as Sunday will be the start of a heat wave that should last through Tuesday. Temperatures will be just slightly above seasonal norms on Saturday, but on Sunday, the temperature will be approaching the middle 90’s. Monday may be the hottest day as we could approach 100 in some inland spots. Chances of thunderstorms will be very low during this heatwave but there may be an isolated storm in spots. A cold front should bring relief by the middle of next week along with an increased chance of showers and thunderstorms. The tropical Atlantic┬áremains quiet. We finally received significant rain in my neighborhood this past week. A little over an inch and a half fell which was very welcomed rainfall. Much more fell to our north and west. (What else is new?) I’ll have an update on Sunday.
