Heat and humidity roll on, but relief in sight for weekend

Weather

We topped 90 degrees for the 11th consecutive day Thursday, with plenty of humidity–enough to spark some isolated storms. If we do reach 90 degrees again tomorrow, before rain arrives in the afternoon ahead of a cold front, that will put us in a tie for the third longest streak of 90-degree days with 1934, 1936 and 1949.

An upper-level low will start to push on the resilient high-pressure heat dome by Friday, allowing a weak cold front to encroach Friday night. A few showers and storms are likely on Friday, and with the upper low lingering over the weekend, pop-up showers are possible to ease the dryness. Temperatures will cool back to more seasonal levels behind the front, with highs returning to the mid-80s beginning on Saturday through Tuesday.
