How do you spell heat relief? R-A-I-N. A cold front is headed our way, breaking through the heat with rain and scattered thunderstorms. While we are not under a risk for severe storms, there could be an isolated strong to severe cell embedded.
Morning temperature will be quite warm and there will be areas of light patchy fog. The main weather feature though is an approaching cold front that will bring widespread showers and storms to the Tri-State this afternoon into the early evening. This system is a fast mover so we'll begin to see a few showers develop during the morning.
The main push of showers and storms: 2pm through 8pm. Expect .25"-.50" with higher totals in thunderstorms.
Behind the front, cooler and drier air. Temperature highs near 80 for a couple of days. Next week also looks to be a much cooler week than this one. By the way, we reached 91 degrees Tuesday. It will be a while before we see heat like that again.
Have a great day!
