The hottest day of the week is here. Be safe in the afternoon heat. By tonight, a weak “cold” front will pass through, possibly kicking off a shower. Behind this front, we’ll enjoy a couple more dry days. Over the weekend, the weather becomes a bit unsettlled, leading to some low rain chances. Those chances may increase to as much as 50% by Sunday night. Keep in mind that there remain no significant rain chances in sight.
This Week’s Hazards
MM’s Wx Vlog
Wednesday: Partly cloudy and hot. A slight chance for an overnight shower.
Thursday: Partly cloudy and slightly cooler.
Friday: Partly to mostly sunny and hot.
Saturday: Partly cloudy, with a slight chance for a shower or storm.
Sunday: Partly sunny, with a chance for showers and storms.
MM’s Severe Wx Concerns
Stay safe in the heat. Find shade in the afternoons and stay hydrated. Keep in mind that temps can feel as much as 20 degrees hotter than they are if you’re in the sun or exercising.

This week’s MM newsletter is about a story I found about a little town in West Virginia and how they deal with the heat. It’s interesting enough to share in a newsletter! That letter will publish by this afternoon. If you find this kind of info interesting, you might consider subscribing to the newsletter at https://meteorologistmarkpro.com/! It’s only $5 a month or $50 a year, with proceeds supporting my education outreach programs with the kids.
