Review: Outside of Fri the forecast went pretty much as expected. It certainly got warm and humid and it did turn wet for most. The big goof was the chill for Fri. Did not see it being that cool with temps holding around 50 for most of the day. Ouch!
This coming week will end up pretty summery. After a cool start, a strong warm front will move through Tuesday into Wednesday with some thunderstorms/showers with it. After that perhaps our first heat wave of the summer. For our area an official heat wave is defined as 3 consecutive days of 90 degrees or above for highs. It will be close as Thu – Sun will be pretty hot for this time of year. We may not get 3 days in a row but it will be close. Fri-Sat should be the hottest. Humidity will increase esp. late in the week.
This is how I see it:
Sun – Mon: Lots of sunshine, but still a gusty breeze on Sunday. Pleasant both days. Highs in 60s Sunday and low 70s Monday. Pretty chilly night Sun night with lows around 40. Clouds increase Mon night.
Tue-Tue night: warm front approaching from the west. Some showers/thunder will accompany this surge of warm/hot air pushing into the area. It will become cloudy. Highs in the low 70s, but temps only dropping into the 60s at night.
Wed: front still near by, with clouds and sun. A shower or storm is still possible. Much warmer and more humid also. Temps jumping into the low 80s.
Thu – Sat: Very similar each day as heat and humidity build. Lots of sunshine, maybe a stray shower/thunderstorm here or there each afternoon, but very localized if it does happen. Highs around 90 each day, esp. Fri and Sat. Lows at night mainly in the mid to upper 60s.
Sun: still hot and humid but showers and storms likely late or at night. Could be some strong to severe storms with heavy rain. Highs again in the upper 80s with stronger SW winds.
Hint thru June 8: a cooler week is expected, but it will probably warm up again, late in the week. Rain wise, possibly wet into Mon and then again late in the week. A more seasonal week is expected for the beginning of summer vacation for our school kids. One thing to note that a tropical storm may try to develop in and around the Gulf of Mexico. Just something to note for possible future moisture impact.
