Another heat wave coming


1. With that being said we’re three degrees below normal for the month. This should get us close to normal temperature wise. A lack of rainfall will continue to be the story due to a strong ridge of high pressure from the southern plains to northeast.

2.  Saturday and Sunday mostly sunny lows in the 60’s and highs in the upper 80’s. A week front may be enough for a stray storm, I think the ridge holds and suppresses most anything that could form.

3. Monday Through Friday will be hot and dry lows in the 60’s and highs in the low to mid 90’s.

4. For next weekend I’m anticipating a front to move through and cool the region. This week our rainfall deficit will continue to grow getting over 5 inches for BG and Lexington. However a tropical system this week has the potential to develop in the western gulf and may interact with the front to provide a chance for a good rainfall next weekend. I’m discounting the extreme solution of the 00z ECMWF which builds the ridge even further and sends highs into the 100’s. The 12Z is more realistic. and in line with other guidance.
