Patrick Rockey’s Live VIPIR Forecast
Summer vacation is over. Summer weather is not.
It looks like the first day of school for many kids on Tuesday will be one of the hottest days we’ve had in weeks. A southwest flow will push in plenty of heat and humidity. We’ll see temperatures climb into mid 90s with heat index values in the triple digits.
A cold front arrives on Wednesday and will make its way across the region throughout the day. That could spark some scattered showers and thunderstorms and will usher in some (slightly) milder weather. On Thursday, we expect highs back in the mid-to-upper 80s. That’s still warmer than normal, but a little more reasonable.
We’ll rough out the work week (and school week) with partly cloudy skies and highs in the mid-to-upper 80s on both Friday and Saturday.
Another cold front arrives on Sunday, bringing us more scattered storms and highs back in the low-to-mid 80s on Sunday and Monday.
