Heat, Worsening Drought

It does not take many consecutive days of hot, dry weather to quickly bring on the effects of drought. That will be the story heading through the upcoming weekend. An isolated shower or thunderstorm will bring relief to a lucky few, although most places will stay dry through Sunday. Temperatures will remain hot on Saturday, as the equation (summer sunshine + dry ground) = above normal temperatures. The heat eases some next week.

Forecast Discussion

A weak backdoor cold front will be slip southward through the state overnight. Warm temperatures in the middle part of the atmosphere prohibited thunderstorms from forming Friday evening. The front will settle south of the area over the weekend and dissipate. We’ll enjoy plenty of sunshine and above normal temperatures this weekend, with Saturday a little hotter than Sunday. The opportunity for a cooling shower or thundershower will be quite small.

Next week, another diffuse frontal boundary will be approaching from the west. Monday looks like our best coverage day for showers in thunderstorms in a week or more, followed by diminishing chances for Tuesday and Wednesday.

Scattered PM showers and thunderstorms may make a return toward next Thursday and Friday once again. However, drought-ending rainfall is not expecting during this period.
