Wednesday Night: Passing evening storms; Heat Advisory in effect Thursday and Friday

Weather

Tonight: Mostly dry and warm tonight. Lows in the mid 70s.

Heat Advisory is in effect from 9 AM to 7 PM Thursday and Friday. High heat and humidity could put major stress on our bodies and this could quickly lead to heat-related illnesses. Heat index values will be around 105°F to 110°F+ for several hours.

Saharan dust and wildfire smoke from the Pacific Northwest & southern Canada, will lead to air quality index (AQI) levels in the moderate category Thursday & Friday. AQI may even exceed 100 at times.

Thursday: Scattered showers and storms are possible – mainly during the afternoon and early evening hours. Storms may produce torrential rain, gusty wind, and lightning. Highs will still be in the mid 90s with heat indices in the 100s.

Friday and the Weekend: Spotty showers and storms will be around. Highs will be in the mid and upper 90s, but it will feel like the 100s.

Next Week: Incoming cold front will lead to higher rain coverage, which would keep our temperatures down a couple of degrees. We will have monitor the potential for heavy rain.
