Extreme heat for the 4th of July’s the top weather headline tonight.
As of 10pm, it’s still very warm outdoors.
Very isolated showers were holding on across the Mid State.
By dawn, most if not all of the showers will be gone. Spotty dense fog will have developed too.
Temperatures in the morning will be in the low 70s, but that’s around 6am.
We’ll have a quick warm-up tomorrow, with spotty showers and thunderstorms developing. The greatest concentration of rain should be over our northwestern counties.
Then, on the 4th of July, even hotter air will develop.
The heat index Wednesday afternoon will be in the lower 100s.
FUTURECAST shows how minimal storm coverage is expected on tomorrow. The same is expected Wednesday.
Thursday will be similar. Then thunderstorms will become likely on Friday as our next cold front approaches from the north. Because of that front, the weekend will be slightly cooler and less humid throughout. Nighttime lows Saturday night will be in the 60s….possibly lower 60s in the coolest communities!
We hope you’ll watch Daphne DeLoren Tuesday morning. She’ll show you where fog has become an issue for the drive.
