Hotter, More Humid Weather On the Way

July 3rd, 2013 at 12:58 pm by under Chad's WLFI Weather Blog

Warmth is gradually moving eastward & upper low is moving back north.

Regardless, today will feature partly to mostly cloudy skies with a few showers/t’storms & highs of 77 in the west to 83 in the east.  It is already 77 in our eastern counties, but still holding on to 68 in our far western counties.  I have 71.2 degrees at WLFI as of 12:57 p.m.

July 4th will feature partly cloudy skies, highs of 81-85 with more muggy conditions & some scattered showers/storms.

You can see the warm-up coming via longer-range numerical model data (top row of number below the days show the PROJECTED highs & lows from the GFS model (upper 80s to 90, even 91 return):

    I’ve been in my swimming pool once this summer. It doesn’t seem like we are getting the sunny summer days like we used to. :(

    I agree! Here it is July and I haven’t been out on the lake ONCE! The only sunny days I see are during the week when I’m at work. It’s very frustrating
