WEATHER NEWS: PM Update: Isolated rumble into evening, and bigger storms threaten early Tuesday
We tallied our fourth day at or above 90 this year as most of the area reached and surpassed that mark. With dew points in the 60s to near 70, it certainly feels like summer. And, in more summer feels, we’re watching a storm complex to our northwest. For now it seems as though the worst of it may miss to the south, but it will be close and could hit us square on. Tomorrow? More of the same, once clouds are out of here.
Through tonight: A couple of showers or storms are possible this evening. For the most part, it will be sultry and still. Warmth will persist through the night as clouds increase after midnight. Scattered to numerous showers and storms will become probable in the sunrise period, with remnants of a storm complex likely to pass the area in the 6 to 10 a.m. time frame.
Tomorrow (Tuesday): Any showers and storms that will be around could be strong to severe through the midmorning or so, with showers remaining possible into the midday before tapering during the afternoon. We should see some clearing, and it will still be rather soupy. Highs will reach the mid-80s and perhaps upper 80s with enough sun.
Pollen update: Grass pollen and mold spores are low/moderate. Tree and weed pollen is low.
Missing: 90s? Although few would complain, we’ve arguably had a slow start to 90-degree season. Today’s fourth of the year gets us back nearer the average of five for the date. Last year, we were zooming along, with seven 90-degree days to date. 1991 is the leader through June 13, with 16 90-degree days at this point.
