Friday was the hottest day so far this year with highs topping out in the mid to upper 80s, even near 90 in spots. Before that, May 16th was the warmest day with a high of 83 degrees. It’s been quite some time since we last were this warm, dating back to last September.
At times, dew points climbed into the upper 50s so while it wasn’t humid, the moisture in the air was noticeable.
This will not last, however, as a cold front swept through overnight. Scattered showers and a few rumbles of thunder will continue as the front moves out, but most of the rain chances stay on the morning side of noon Saturday with clouds slowly clearing through the afternoon.
Temperatures behind the front will cool down, but stay fairly close to average in the low to mid 70s tomorrow afternoon, then continuing to cool for Sunday with highs only in the upper 60s despite plenty of sunshine.
We’ll warm back to the mid 70s Monday and will see warmer temperatures midweek in conjunction with our next rain chances which right now look to form Tuesday afternoon and be out by early Wednesday morning.
Temperatures warm back to the 80s by the end of next week.
