An upper ridge helped bring in the hottest feeling day of the year so far. Heat index values came close to or right at to 100 degrees in many areas, with actual temps in the low 90′s. Things stay toasty into Thursday and Friday. Drier air will help keep heat index values lower on Thursday. The breeze picks up some, especially by Friday. This will help things feel better. It also will bring in more moisture ahead of the weekend. Rain chances jump to 70% Saturday and 80% Sunday. Have an indoor game plan for the weekend. The front moving in will bring a continued likely chance of rain Saturday, Saturday night, and Sunday.
The rip current risk remains low at our local beaches for Thursday, but does increase on Friday to a high risk. The tropics are very quiet so far. Tropical development is not expected in the next 5 days.
