More hot weather with isolated storms

Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

The hot weather will continue for a few more days. In addition, some spotty thunderstorm activity should help keep things from getting too dry. If you are hoping for less humid weather, you will have to wait until the weekend.

Today: Partly cloudy and hot again. An isolated shower or t-storm possible in the afternoon.

High: 90 Wind: SE around 10

Tonight: A few spotty showers early, otherwise scattered clouds and some patchy fog possible.

Low: 66 Wind: SE around 5

Thursday: Partly cloudy and hot with a 30% chance of scattered showers or storms.

High: 90 Wind: South 5-10

For this Wednesday we will experience partly cloudy conditions and high temps once again around 90 degrees. The wind will shift a little more to the southeast so it will not be as humid as yesterday but it will still be a bit muggy. Southeast winds should be around 10 mph. There is enough moisture in the air that a couple of spotty showers or thunderstorms could develop this afternoon. A similar situation will occur on Thursday with the addition of a weak cold front drifting in from the northwest. This front will produce a chance of spotty thunderstorms and there is at least a small risk of a stronger storm or two. However, don't expect the activity to be too widespread. Highs will be around 90 on Thursday and again on Friday.

On Friday, a more substantial cold front will be moving in from the northwest. This will raise the chance of thunderstorms up to about 60 percent and more of the area could end up with rain. Scattered showers might even linger until around daybreak on Saturday before moving out.

After the showers move out, we should have a few nice days in a row with lower humidity and a good amount of sun. There is only a slight chance of a thunderstorm or two on Sunday in the far north due to a weak cold front passing by over lake Superior. High temps will still be in the low to mid 80s over the weekend, then in the upper 70s to around 80 early next week.

Have an fine Wednesday! Meteorologist Justin Loew, Morning Update, 9-June-2021

On this date in weather history: 1972 - A cloudburst along the eastern slopes of the Black Hills of South Dakota produced as much as 14 inches of rain resulting in the Rapid City flash flood disaster. The rains, which fell in about four hours time, caused the Canyon Lake Dam to collapse. A wall of water swept through the city drowning 237 persons, and causing more than 100 million dollars property damage. (David Ludlum)
