PM Update: 4th of July weekend starts right
Nearing 90 tomorrow before mid-90s+ July 4th & after
Well, at least we squeezed in one last day with low humidity and comfy temperatures. In a few days we'll undoubtedly be looking back wishing for this weather to return. Delightful afternoon highs near and just above 80 have kept our short-lived "spring wave" (thanks, Camden, for coining the phrase) going, but it's fleeting and will soon be replaced by more of those 90+ days we've already seen so many of.
Through Tonight: Let the holiday celebrations begin! With a high-pressure center parked nearby, we get one more clear and cool night. Light winds and clear skies lead to good radiational cooling, allowing lows to head for the mid-or-upper 50s in the suburbs to the low-to-mid 60s downtown.
Tomorrow (Saturday): The warm up begins as high pressure slips to the southeast. Light winds from the west/southwest bring us back pretty close to average for this time of year as mostly sunny skies help highs rise into the upper 80s and around 90. Humidity stays rather low, at least for now...
July 4th weather: Only one 4th of July on record, back in 1919, has seen temperatures crack the century mark, while about 1/3 have seen temperatures top 90 degrees. This year, we have the potential to do something only 16 other Independence Days have done -- reach 95 or higher. Most recent notables in the "scorching 4th" category include 99 in both 2002 and 1999, with the majority of the rest of the top contenders occurring during the early portions of the historical record, which dates back to the late 1800s.
