PM Update: More heat and more slight storm chances

While we’ve dealt with a bit of heat relief today, it’s still plenty hot with temperatures surpassing 90 and heading as far as the mid-90s across the area. Fortunately, storm threats are generally low compared to recently, though it’s still tough to entirely rule out pop-up storms that could be strong with all this heat around. Tomorrow? Mainly the same story.

Through Tonight: There’s a very slight (10%-20%) chance of a storm or two around the area until about sunset when the atmosphere begins to cool off in earnest. Other than that, it’s mostly clear to partly cloudy with lows ranging from the upper 60s to mid-70s.

Tomorrow (Tuesday): We’ve got another mostly sunny to partly cloudy day ahead, with plenty of heat and humidity. Once again, look for highs to top out mainly in the low-and-mid 90s. With us still in a pattern near the edge of the jet stream, we’ll watch for a trigger for storms, but for now it looks like nothing more than a slight risk of general afternoon pop-ups once again.

Pollen update: There is no pollen report today due to power issues at the allergen lab.
