Good Thursday morning! Temperatures have started out cooler thanks to a cold front that has passed now east. Unfortunately, the cooler air doesn't stick around long as southerly flow continues to dominate for the day today (right image). Because of this, we will again feel a bit more sticky through the afternoon and also see the opportunity for pop up showers and thunderstorms.
As you can see, the forecasted temperatures for today will be right on cue with our averages. If it were not for winds out of the south, we would likely be a bit cooler but we'll take what we can get for now. Most valley locations will top out in the mid 80s today with those in the higher terrain topping out in the lower 80s.
Generally, the days ahead will feature warm and muggy afternoons with showers and thunderstorms possible. This trend looks to stick around for some time, at least through early next week. Most activity will be fairly benign but a few thunderstorms could be strong at times.
That will do it for today...find out about the active tropics and more by viewing our video forecast below.
