Hot summer pattern continues through the midweek

Posted at 4:30 AM, Jul 15, 2020

It's still going to be plenty hot outside this Wednesday, but we can seek comfort that it won't be quite as ridiculous as it's been over the last couple of days (even if that change isn't all that impressive).

Sunny skies will push temperatures into the lower 90s Wednesday afternoon, and the heat index should be a little lower then it was to start off the work week.

Don't get too excited though, heat index values will return to the triple digits but they'll be in the 100-105 range as opposed to the low teens.

An isolated shower or two on Wednesday wouldn't be out of the question, however, there's much better rain chances on the way for Thursday as moisture pushes across the area.

Widely scattered showers, and a few thunderstorms will be the result of this moisture before we dry out again by the weekend.

There's another surge of moisture pushing in from the Gulf of Mexico through next week which will help restore temperatures to normal and bring us back those daily rounds of rain.
