Hot Conditions Continue

We’ll be entering the hottest stretch of 2018 thus far this weekend. It seems we only had about one week of Spring before we hopped into Summer!

Upper level ridging will move into the place throughout the day today. This, combined with gusty southwest winds will lead to temperatures in the upper 80s. A Lake Wind Advisory is in effect today, so boaters beware of rough lake water conditions.

Another hot day is expected Saturday as that upper level ridge remains in place across the region. Gusty southwest winds will once again lead to highs in the upper 80s. Overnight lows will once again drop into the upper 60s.

Cooler, Rainy Today

A rainy day is expected across the region. However, temperatures should still warm into the low to mid 70s because we’ll be on the edge of the rain shield for most of the day.

This line of showers and storms should gradually work into the region today. This may limit temperatures some, but we’ll still likely warm into the mid 80s. Gusty southwest winds have prompted a Lake Wind Advisory to be issued today, so boaters be cautious on the water today.
