The countdown is on: 94, 93, 92, 91, 90... That's not our next rocket launch, that's a peek at the high temperatures over the next five days.
We shave a few more degrees off our high today, with a forecast of 94°. Storm coverage is up to 30%, so a few more areas may see a cooling shower or storm during the afternoon or evening.
Heading into the weekend, expect scattered storms with highs in the low 90s both days as we keep it hot to close out the month of July.
There's a chance highs next week could stay below 90°, and possibly in the upper 80s by late next week. By that time, it will have been over two weeks straight of temperatures in the 90s. Keep your fingers crossed!
Stay cool and have a great weekend.
