Current Weather

Weather Concerns

Near record heat will continue each day for much of the upcoming

week. Thunderstorms chances increase each afternoon/evening

through the remainder of the week, increasing the chances for dry

lightning and gusty outflows. Winds will otherwise follow typical

diurnal trends, with afternoon gustiness due to heating.
