Late Saturday Evening July 16th Update – All About the Summer Heat This Coming Week

Good late Saturday evening, everyone! Hopefully, you all are enjoying your weekend after we had to deal with our fair share of t-storm chances this week. We kept things quiet again today with afternoon highs back into the upper 80s to near 90°. We’ll keep things quiet tonight as any rain or t-storms on the radar below stay away from us…

The very same front that kept us busy this past week with rain and t-storms is FINALLY getting itself out of here. You can see how things look on the surface map below…

It might have been stationary back at 10 PM, but it’s on the move northward. That will allow a southerly wind to kick back in for our Sunday and bring the summer heat back in here. We’ll have a quiet and pretty mild start to our Sunday morning with lows around 75°. We’ll keep the skies mostly sunny for the day as afternoon highs top out around 94°. Don’t neglect the wind for Sunday, It could gust up to 20 mph at times during the afternoon…

The overall trend for the week ahead will be to keep things quiet as an upper-level ridge builds in. You can see how the upper-level setup will look by the end of the week on the map below and what that’ll do for temperatures for most of the week…

To start the week, we’ll have highs between the lower and middle 90s. You could argue a stray t-storm or two on Tuesday, but this looks like a classic summer pattern setting back up here. With a setup like that, we should keep things dry this week. From Wednesday on into next weekend, highs should easily climb into the middle and upper 90s. Honestly, I wouldn’t be surprised if we got near 100° by Saturday and Sunday of the upcoming weekend. Whether or not we’ll hit 100° within the next 7 days, the humidity that will be around will make it feel like we’re in triple-digit heat. With that in mind, be sure you take it easy for any and all outdoor plans that you have this coming week.

Don’t forget that Doug has you covered with his latest thoughts on the pattern and the long-range forecast. You can get all of that over on headypattern.com

Have a good night and a great Sunday, everyone!

LONG RANGE FORECAST: Based off of the HP(Heady Pattern)

SLIGHT CHANCES:  MEAN IT IS A WEAKER SYSTEM THAT WILL GIVE US SCATTERED SHOWERS OR SNOW SHOWERS. 

IF I DON’T SAY SLIGHT:  THAT MEANS THIS IS A STRONGER SYSTEM

July 24th-30th:  The first half of the week will be warm with scattered thunderstorms.  The second half of the week will be hot and dry.
