Weekly Outlook: July 18-24, 2022

Hot weather is expected for much of the upcoming week (in July? That never happens!), but luckily, humidity levels won’t be that bad most of the time.

An approaching frontal system will bring in some showers and thunderstorms today into tonight. While we need any rain we get to help put a dent in the developing drought, it looks like the heaviest rain will stay north and west of the region. Still, some of the storms that do develop may contain some heavy downpours. Drier air settles in behind the front for Tuesday, but the airmass behind the front isn’t that cold, and in fact, with sunshine, temperatures will actually be warmer than today, making a run at 90 in many locations. Wednesday also looks hot, but with moderate humidity levels.

Thursday looks oppressive at this point with heat and humidity increasing as another frontal system approaches the region. That front may produce a few showers and thunderstorms late in the day, but for now, it doesn’t look like a widespread severe weather event is likely. Drier air settles in for Friday with hot weather continuing. Next weekend looks very warm to hot with moderate humidity levels and a few pop-up showers and thunderstorms, especially on Sunday.

The combination of heat and humidity will make it feel likely it’s close to 100 degrees Thursday afternoon. Image provided by WeatherBell.
