Weather Update for Wednesday July 11, 2018.
We could not dial up a better day than today. Seriously folks, you need to get outside. Tell your bosses I said it’s all good. Call your customers and tell them “Sorry pal”. It’s that good. Let’s look at it.
Today, fanfreakintastic, that’s what it’s going to be. Sunny with a high of 85 in the Highland area, 78 near the lake and 88 inland. The wind will start out northeastern changing to a southeast clocking in at the usual 5-10 mph. What a dealio, you can’t exactly get that stuff at the Hessville Ace Hardware can ya?
That low front that was threatening some stuff got pushed right on out of here and moved off to the south. Now a high pressure area is coming in from the north, bring some nice weather for the next few days. It will turn hot and humid towards the weekend but still sunny until Saturday. What will happen Saturday you ask? Just wait cupcake, I’m getting to it. Just hold on to your Hello Kitty shorts for a second.
Tonight, nice sleeping weather. 65 degrees with a nice northeast becoming southeast wind clocking in at 5-10 mph. All under clear skies.
Tomorrow, it becomes less fanfreakintasic. Partly sunny and warming up to a high of 87 in Highland. Humidity climbs. Dewpoint will be in the 80s. So warm but humid.
Thursday night, a little less comfortable, with 68 degrees but that humidity will be high. So air conditioner somewhat optional but it will start getting uncomfortable. Not as uncomfortable when Aunt Delores comes to stay with her 50 bottles of prescriptions for some 50 ailments that you hear about once every 20 minutes.
Friday sunny but hot and humid with a high of 91.
Saturday mostly sunny with a high of 90 but still humid. Chance of showers as a low front comes to visit.
Enjoy and stay safe.

There is a slight risk of flash flooding in the Southwest today with the slight risk shifting eastward by Thursday along the Rockies.
