* heat advice 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. *

A more subjective rating of the day’s weather on a scale of 0 to 10.

3/10: Today the sun is sizzling, pop-up storms can hiss.

  • Today: Mostly sunny, isolated afternoon thunderstorms possible. Maximum scores: 94 to 98.
  • This evening: Thunderstorm possible in the evening, then clearing up. Lows: 69 to 75.
  • Morning: Sunny, humid, light breeze. Maximum scores: 93 to 97.

Our count of 90 degree days will continue to increase over the next week while reaching 100 is not out of the question. The risk of storms is low for the next few days, so if you can stand the heat, outdoor activities are mostly worth trying. Monday has the highest chance of significant rain.

Today (Thursday): Temperatures are rising in a hurry, and while the sun dominates, clouds will gather in the afternoon. Isolated to isolated showers/storms are possible, especially south of the city in the afternoon and into the evening. Any storms that form could be locally intense. Highs reach the mid to high 90’s. Humidity is high (dew points close to 70) so it feels like 100 to 105 degrees. When you’re outside, be sure to drink and take breaks. The southwest breeze is light. Confidence: High

This evening: Some storms may continue into the evening, but after sunset things calm down and skies are clear. The lows will be mostly in the low to mid 70’s. Confidence: High
