July 10: Heat Wave, Daily Links


A typical July heat wave is settling into the Midstate for the first half of this week.  This week’s weather pattern isn’t dramatically different from last week’s pattern:

But that slight northward shift in the storm track, and the slight eastward shift of the “heat bubble” out west is enough to take the best storm chances away from our neck of the woods, and to unleash the heat.  High temperatures will reach well into the 90s today and tomorrow:

We’ll hit the low 90s again Wednesday and Thursday, with increasing humidity as well.

Dry weather expected today and tomorrow, then just a slight chance of an afternoon storm south of I-40 on Wednesday.  Scattered storms return to the forecast Thursday through the weekend, with Friday, Friday night and Saturday morning looking like the wettest time frame right now:

That’s pretty far down the line in the extended forecast — we’ll keep you updated this week, so you can adjust any weekend plans if necessary.
