Rough start to the weekend

We will have to get through the first part of our weekend with showers and storms before we finally get some relief from the humidity. Heavy rainfall is also possible south of our area tonight and Saturday. Showers and storm chances will end by Sunday, making way for a clearing and less humid Sunday afternoon. The best part of the forecast will be next week with cooler temperatures combined with lower temperatures.

Friday Nites Live 7/21

This week’s Friday Nites Live forecast is filled with high heat and humidity.  Temperatures will be near 90° when the concert starts, but it will feel closer to 100° due to our high humidity levels.  So, don’t only bring your lawn chair this week, bring an icy, cold bottle of water, too.  And, if you forget, food and drinks are always available at the event.

Heat and humidity are on the rise

When air temperatures start getting into the 90s combined with a high relative humidity, the air begins to feel much hotter and heavier. Over the next couple of days, temperatures are going to feel like they are in the triple digits, which means heat exhaustion and heat stroke become much more prevalent issues.

TRF Fireworks Finale forecast

After a week of fun events spread across the city, the annual Three Rivers Festival concludes with its annual Saturday night fireworks finale. While the past week has seen periodic rain and storm chances, there are NO storms expected Saturday night.

Friday Nites Live 7/14

As we sit here now in mid-July, the annual Friday Nites Live concert series at Jefferson Pointe is halfway complete!  Can you believe it? While rain has threatened many of this year’s evening concerts, that won’t be the case this week.

Update on Wed night/Thursday severe storm potential

With warm, humid air all around us contributing to atmospheric instability, plus a front positioned nearby and sinking south through the area between now and Thursday night, periods of rain and thunderstorms are possible.  These storms could very well squeeze out another 1″-3″ of rainfall in some spots as they move through.  Everyone should be on alert for potential flooding and torrential downpours with these storms.
