Hot & Breezy Monday, Possible Tue/Tue Night Storms
You know the drill by now... morning clouds with afternoon clearing, breezy, hot, and humid. Sunday's highs were mostly between 90 and 95, but it felt like the upper 90s during the hottest part of the day.
Clouds increase overnight with lows in the mid and low 70s Monday morning. Another hot and breezy day is in store with highs in the low to mid 90s. Winds may gust up to 30+.
Lately a dryline has been sitting to our west with occasional daytime isolated rain. It gets nudged closer to I-35 Tuesday, giving us a 20-30% chance of late day storms, then a weak front arrives Tue night with a 30-40% chance for storms. At that point some may be severe. Click here for the severe weather outlook. Also seen on that link is an increased moderate risk of severe storms in the Central U.S. Multiple tornadoes occurred Sunday, marking the 5th straight day of tornadoes in the U.S., with a few more likely to come.
As for our heat, the front may drop us a few degrees at best, but we stay pretty hot through the week and beyond. Check out the YNN 8 Day Forecast for details.
SOLAR STORM... Four powerful X-class solar eruptions earlier in the week certainly have lots of eyes keeping watch on our star -- through the safety of filters, of course. Spaceweather forecasters say there's a 50% chance of another
powerful X-class eruption in the next several days, and a 40% chance of a polar geomagnetic storm.
