More hot weather on tap for this week but periodic showers and thunderstorms could provide some needed relief.  There are rain chances practically each day this week with slightly cooler temperatures expected by the end of the week.

Partly cloudy, hot and humid today with highs in the mid 90s, heat index values above 105 prompting today’s heat advisory.

A 20% chance for showers to cool you back down.

A somewhat “wet” weather pattern will be shaping up for the rest of the week with increasing rain chances and afternoon highs falling into the mid and upper 80s.

While hot today, near heat advisory levels, rain will help cool us back down for the rest of the week, and into the weekend.

Afternoon highs will hold in the mid/upper 80s, with scattered to numerous showers becoming likely.  Slow moving storms that could produce localized flash flooding.

 

Here’s the “5-day” rainfall accumulation forecast model.
