Finally some relief from the heat as a cold front has moved
through the region. Temperatures this afternoon should only be in
the 80s, and that is a much nicer feeling than the upper 90s and
triple digits we have been dealing with the last week or so.
Expect the 80s to stay around for Tuesday as well as we should
remain dry across the Mid South. After midweek, a weak ridge will
build back across the area. Afternoon highs Thursday and Friday
should be back in the low to middle 90s. As a result of the weaker
ridge, afternoon thunderstorms look more likely Thursday into
next weekend. The wetter unsettled pattern continues into the
weekend and into Independence Day. Expect temperatures next
weekend to be in the normal range in the lower 90s.
