Starting tomorrow, we’ll see our daily rain and storm chances fall to more typical summer levels as our recent pattern breaks up a bit. It certainly won’t be entirely dry on any given day, but the coverage of showers and thunderstorms will be lower heading forward.

Rain chances dip a bit to around 40% for both Thursday and Friday. Then, as we head into the weekend, it’s continuing to look more and more likely that many areas stay mainly dry. We’ll keep rain and storm chances around 30% or so.

It is important to note that with the coming weather pattern, some overnight and morning thunderstorm complexes - known as MCS’s - are possible. They are extremely difficult to forecast and pinpoint more than a day or two ahead of time, but the threat of overnight storms that could bring gusty winds is there depending on how things evolve.

Otherwise it’ll be mainly our summertime pop-up showers and thunderstorms through early next week.

With the lower daytime rain chances, though, comes an increase in the heat. Highs will rise into the low and middle 90s beginning Thursday.

Heat index temperatures will soar above 100 degrees each day beginning Thursday.

Unfortunately, the humidity will remain quite elevated, which means our “feels like” temperatures will be in the 100-107° range pretty much every day for the foreseeable future. Be sure to be cautious and take things easy if spending time outdoors!
