Another hot and sticky July day, the high reached 96°, of course it felt like 100 plus! With the exception of 4, most days this month have been above average for this time of year. which is 89°.
July 26 and 27 will also be filled in with red. However blue is a likely color for the last few days of the month, finally some relief.
A few showers and thunderstorms cooled some areas down today temporarily, but it’s going to be a steamy evening. Most of the rain will diminish so you might want to check out the International Space Station as it passes by tonight at 8:46 PM. It will appear in the WSW sky and exit in the NE sky. The fly-by will last 6 minutes and reach a maximum height of 52°.
Overnight a few areas of fog will develop, so beware of that on the morning drive. Tomorrow and Thursday will be hot and humid again with a few isolated afternoon thunderstorms. The high both days will be 94° with the heat index in the low 100s…ugh.
A front does approach late Thursday and into Friday. That will produce some rain and thunderstorms. Some of those storms could be strong. But the best part is what comes behind the front…the air will be less humid and not as hot. Highs will be in the mid 80s, slightly below average for this time of year. Still July weather, just not as extreme as most of the month.
I’ll have an update tonight on News 4 at 10 PM.
