As we near the 11 o' clock hour, temperatures are already in the upper 70's to lower 80's. The average for this time of the year is 82 but we are expecting temps to top out today around 90. Muggy conditions will also be present so have plenty of water and stay cool this afternoon (especially those outdoors for long periods of time).
A bit of a break comes tomorrow as a low pressure system draws near. Scattered showers are expected to arrive by late-morning to early afternoon and continue on and off into the evening hours. Scattered activity will continue into Friday before more sunshine returns for the weekend. Keep in mind there is a low chance for any severe activity tomorrow but some storms could contain gusty winds and small hail.
Jumping into the outlook for mid June, slightly cooler temperatures are anticipated. Keep in mind averages for mid June are the mid 80's so "cooler" is a relative term. We'll have to get past the hump this weekend and early into next week as high's will be at or around the 90 degree mark.
As always, we will keep you posted via social media for the latest on all your weather needs. For now, stay cool and hydrated as today will be much above average.
