Highs today reached 82-93. Peak heat index measured was 98 at Covington.
It was cooler in the north due to so much thick debri cloudiness lingering from the former storms that occurred northwest of our area overnight to this morning.
Numerous storms developing & moving into area.
Risk continues for a couple/few storms to produce severe wind gusts &/or hail.
Severe risk should continue for a few more hours, followed by some patchy fog & lows in the 60s to around 70.
Partly cloudy skies & 80s to lower 90s will do it for highs with heat indices 90s to near 100.
A few isolated storms are possible Thursday.
Complex of severe storms tracking through Iowa to will produce MCV & that MCV should pivot through our area Friday.
New storms may pop in the area late Friday afternoon-evening. Severe weather risk could develop.
After morning lows in the 60s to 70, highs in the upper 80s to the 90s are likely. Heat indices in the 90s to as high as 103 are possible.
Weekend looks dry with sunshine & highs 85-90 with lows 60-65. The humidity will be cut a bit.
Monday looks dry with sunshine & highs 90-95 with heat indices of 95-100.
Tuesday will feature increasing clouds with a couple isolated showers/storms possible & highs in the upper 80s to the 90s after morning lows in the 60s to around 70.
Remnants of Cristobal will combine with low pressure near Minnesota to make for a very deep storm system. This will also mean a stronger cold front.
Even with a lots of clouds Wednesday, dynamics, shear & marginal instability support some severe weather risk.
Cooler, comfortable weather will follow with highs in the 70s lows 47-53. Very crisp!
Temperatures will average below normal as this deep system (after the Cristobal merger) pulls down a chunk of cooler air.
Hot, humid weather will return shortly after with storm & severe risk around June 14.
Latter June, & especially in the first week of July, should feature lots of hot weather.
Temperatures should run above normal.
Rainfall now to June 10 looks above normal, largely due to Cristobal.
June 10-17 looks drier than normal.
Late June is wetter than normal overall with bouts of storms with the heat & humidity.
We dry out with time in July, as the analysis continues to indicate heat & dryness developing. Rainfall will drop below normal with time, it appears.
As always, we will continue to monitor.
The tropics are a wildcard which could turn it much wetter suddenly.
