Triple Digits Are Back
Wednesday, August 20th, 2014
Did you enjoy Tuesday's 1-day cool-down? Sure hope so, because we soared all the way to 102 on Wednesday. The difference-maker? Clouds. We were stuck in the clouds much of the day Tuesday, but mostly sunny skies won out on Wednesday. Looking ahead, high pressure dominates, which means our weather pattern will remain pretty much the same each day. Plan on morning clouds giving way to mostly sunny and hot afternoons.
There were a few lonely "pulse" showers (showers that pop-up then quickly rain themselves out) east of I-35 Wednesday afternoon, but most areas stayed dry. Heading through the rest of the week and into the weekend I'm not expecting any rain, but there's a slim bit of hope next week. I've got a 20% chance of rain both Tuesday and Wednesday.
In the Tropics, there's a good chance Tropical Storm Cristobal could develop in the Atlantic. An area of low pressure "Invest 96L" could strengthen and several computer model tracks take it toward Florida. We'll be watching! Meanwhile, in the Pacific, we have two tropical storms: Karina and Lowell. Neither is a threat to land at this time. And there's a high likelihood that another disturbance could strengthen into Tropical Storm Marie.
Wednesday Night: 78 Clear early, clouding up towards dawn. Winds: S 5-15.
Thursday: 102 Early clouds, then mostly sunny and hot. Record is 104 in 1999. Winds: S 10-20

Sunday: 101 Mostly sunny and hot. Record is 107 in 2010. *Morning Low: 76
Monday: 101 Mostly sunny and hot. Record is 103 in 2009. *Morning Low: 76
Tuesday: 100 Partly cloudy and hot with a 20% chance of PM showers. *Morning Low: 76.
Wednesday: 99 Partly cloudy and hot with a 20% chance of PM showers. *Morning Low: 76.
Remember...hydrate, hydrate, hydrate!
