Heat, storms, humidity take over in summer-like fashion

Nothing really excessive to write home about over the next few days, as typical summer heat and humidity will bring late afternoon showers and storms each day. This pattern is expected to persist over the next couple of weeks or so before we get drier.

Every since Elsa arrived and departed, the humidity has been noticeably higher. This will also persist at least over the next couple of weeks, where we might be lucky if a cold front brings temporary relief. The tropics are also quiet, and we expect that to remain the same in the near future, which is good news.

Highs will be in the typical low 90s for this time of year, making for great days and evenings to take a dip in the pool or go for a swim at the beach. The good thing is that it won’t be blistering hot. So if you have typical summer plans, the next two weeks should be almost perfect for them. But please, and as always, consult the local NWS office for official information.

This time of year, we typically just watch the tropics for our next system! But with nothing out there, we are in an “average” pattern, where nothing really stands out for us.
