We've had lots of sunshine to begin the day and the latest UV index forecast shows that. Values in the 8 and 9 range mean keep the sunscreen handy. We will continue seeing the sunshine to end the work week and through the weekend.
A high pressure system covering much of the eastern US is the reasoning behind the sunnier conditions. We will also see temperatures build each day with high's returning to the low/mid 90's by the weekends end.
Though the main threat will once again be the hot temperatures, afternoon pop up showers and storms remain possible. As is the usual trend this time of the year, the majority of activity will be in the higher elevations. Longer lasting cells will move through the central valley at times during the afternoon, otherwise the remainder of us will stay dry in the days ahead. Keep your umbrellas handy just in case.
That will wrap it up for today! If Secret City Weather can help you, let us know by visiting the "Services" tab above.
