Temperatures flirt with 90 degrees on Tuesday before the rain returns
(WOWK) – After several days in the mid-80s, the thermometer is set to reach or exceed 90 degrees for the first time since last Tuesday in August.
Showers on Tuesday are expected to be limited to the eastern mountain peaks outside the WOWK viewing area, and high pressure is expected to build up a bit more.
These factors and a few extra hours of sunlight should allow highs to reach 90 on many car thermometers, bank thermometers, and garden thermometers. It will be very close to 90 at the official check-in stations at local airports.
Temperatures will remain warm but are unlikely to exceed 90 after Tuesday due to increasing clouds and the risk of increased rain.
The rain returns Wednesday in the form of showers and thunderstorms.
The early call on the possibility of severe storms shows a low risk – category 1 in 5 – in areas north of the WOWK observation area.
More rains on Friday and Saturday will cool things down considerably with 70s on Friday and upper 60s on Saturday.
The main thing is:
- Warmer tuesday
- Storms Wednesday night
- More rain on Friday with light rain on Saturday
- Much cooler for Friday and Saturday
