Williams’s Wrap: Weekend Weather

Flow out of the north and west has dominated the region over the past week or so, bringing numerous chances for showers/storms and comfortable July temperatures.  But by early next week, our pattern will change as a strong ridge of high pressure builds over the Central U.S. and brings hot and dry air from the south and southwest.


First though, a decent weekend is ahead with a few chances for rain/t-storms.  But those chances shouldn’t put too much of a damper on any outdoor activities.  Showers to our north have been having a hard time holding up through Friday, so the evening will be mainly dry.  But another chance for a few isolated pockets of rain will develop late Friday night and into early Saturday morning.


Saturday only brings a 30% chance for rain which will lead to another mainly dry evening.  High temperatures will reach the mid 80s under partly sunny skies and this will be the last day of tolerable temperatures for at least a week.


Highs in the 90s return Sunday and this will also be the start to a heat wave.  Feels like temperatures will be around 100 through the upcoming week and well above that at times.  Dangerous heat will quickly bring reminders to hydrate and limit outdoor activity.
