We have started off warmer today, with current temperatures in the lower 80s (12:30 pm). Afternoon highs will also reflect the warmer conditions, with things topping out in the upper 80s. Combining this with the higher dew points, heat indices will feel closer to the mid 90s. Heat and humidity will continue Wednesday and Thursday, with heat indices climbing to around 100 degrees each afternoon.
Looking at the current forecast, UV index values will be between 9-10. This is high, so be sure to keep that sunscreen close by tomorrow and Thursday! Cloud cover will aid in lowering things (as well as temperatures) Friday and into the weekend.
As far as what can be expected ahead, our usual summer-time pop up activity. Pop up showers and storms will be possible this afternoon, Wednesday, and again Thursday. By Friday, an approaching front will bring better chances, which also continue into the weekend. High pressure then fills in thereafter, bringing warmer but drier conditions next week.
That will conclude the forecast for today, as always though, thanks for following along! Don't forget to share our content as well as follow us on Twitter & Facebook if you don't already. You can do so by finding us at @SecretCityWx
