PM Update: Summerlike through the weekend
Some shower and storm risk both days
If you throw out Wednesday, this was a pretty great week of June weather. Today is no exception as highs rise into the mid-80s under partly-to-mostly sunny skies and continued low humidity. Soak up this last bit of this less-sweat weather, because tomorrow should feel a good bit different outside as we get another solid taste of summertime conditions to come.
Through Tonight: South winds have returned and an increase in moisture is not far behind. Temperatures will dip into the upper 70s around sunset before slowly dropping to lows in the mid-60s in the cooler spots to near 70 in the warm ones. The air should feel a bit sticky by the time the sun rises.
Tomorrow (Saturday): Mostly sunny through the morning with increasing clouds possible during the afternoon. As the temperatures rises, so will the humidity. Look for highs in the upper 80s and near 90 with dew points climbing toward 70 (ick). By late afternoon or early evening we may need to watch for thunderstorms arriving from the west or northwest, and the risk may last into the night.
Arkansas flooding: At least 16 people have been killed in southwestern Arkansas and dozens are missing following flash flooding that impacted campgrounds in the state. More than 7 inches of rain fell overnight in parts of the region, with as much as 3 inches in one hour near the campsites. The closest river gauge to the area shows incredible rises on the Cado River over a short period of time. Parts of this system are expected to round a ridge of high pressure to our south, causing a risk of storms on the East Coast late tomorrow and into Sunday.
