The break in the humid weather sure is nice, but it is still very hot out there. The dry and arid weather has created dangerous burn conditions. Red flag warnings are in place and you are encouraged to avoid burning over the next 12-24 hours. I noticed some rainfall activity about 170 miles northwest of our area, near Memphis. There were thunderstorms developing in response to another front. Tonight this front will drop through our area and tomorrow we will have another hot day, with a dry northwest breeze developing. The sky should be clear for our area tonight, with ample sunshine tomorrow. We will enjoy another tranquil period tomorrow night, with lows near 60 degrees. Also, more bright sunshine can be expected on Thursday and Friday, with highs in the 90s.
The surface front will stall to our south and eventually lift northward by Friday afternoon. This will bring a return to the humid and muggy weather, with the chance for a shower or thunderstorm. Classic July weather can be expected for the 4th of July. We will have a partly cloudy sky, with some scattered thunderstorms in the afternoon and early evening. By Sunday there is a chance some additional energy will help spark a better coverage of scattered thunderstorms. The main window for the rain will be during the afternoon and early evening hours.
