Today a ridge of high pressure will rebuild over the region and will boost the temperatures back into the upper 80s and 90s. Some isolated thunderstorms are possible mainly in the mountains but cannot be ruled out to spill into the lower elevation during late afternoon/early evening.

Tomorrow, an upper-level disturbance will continue to keep the state warm, and will also bring scattered showers and thunderstorms. As of now, the system is at a Marginal risk, meaning isolated severe thunderstorms are possible, and will be limited in duration. The system can produce gusty winds, frequent lightning, and small hail. The highs will stay in the 90s.

Thursday's front will cool off the temperatures for Friday. The high temps for Friday will drop nearly 10 degrees in some areas. The conditions will be dry, and the wind will increase. With all that in mind, fire concerns will increase.

Always remember, if working outside, make sure you take breaks, drink plenty of water, try to minimize sun exposure, and finally NEVER leave children disabled adults or pets in a parked car.

Have a great day,
