After lows Saturday morning at 52-61 with patchy shallow fog & Saturday highs at 82-90 with mostly sunny to partly cloudy skies, lows this morning dropped to 59-65.
Highs today should reach 87-92 with heat indices reaching 91-98.
With partly cloudy skies, a few spotty pulsey storms are possible (up to 30%).
Any severe storm would be brief with a wind (downburst) & hail threat that belches out suddenly.
Monday-Thursday looks hot & dry with temperatures surging to as high as 94-99 by mid-week. Heat indices may reach 99-108.
The "Ring of Fire" will be active on the periphery of the heat wave from Manitoba & Minnesota to New England (& as fall west as Ohio). We will watch these "Ridge Riders" that one does become a renegade & track too far to the southwest into part of our area.
The two landfalling hurricanes (Marco & Laura) around Louisiana may combine with remnant circulation of Genevieve & a cold front & upper trough to bring numerous showers & storms in here next weekend with cooler highs in the 80s.
It appears that Hurricane Laura may absorb the remnants of Hurricane Marco (when a depression inland).
Increasing wind fields from these systems & some strengthening flow aloft may result in SLIGHT RISK scenario for the area, even with quite a bit of cloud cover in a muggy, tropical airmass.
Locally-heavy rainfall is possible.
IF the hurricane remnants speed up, then rainfall will GET IN HERE EARLIER. Rather than Friday & Saturday, it may bring renewed rainfall risk Thursday. We will monitor.
Above normal temperatures dominate late August to early September.
Mid-September turns cooler.
Above normal temperature trend occur late September to early October.
Much of the now to early October time period is drier than normal, except for the rainfall ahead late week-next weekend & for any other tropical remnants that bring rainfall to the area.
