Our record high for today of 95 set in 1931 is not in serious jeopardy of being tied or broken but indeed today will be one of our hottest days of the summer with readings reaching 90 in many places. Three or more days in a row at or above 90 constitutes a heat wave and we may well end up with having one here this week. So far this month the average temperature at the Avoca airport is running 6 tenths of a degree above normal.
Overnight tonight, it looks dry and mostly clear with lows near 65.
Wednesday will be humid and even warmer with high temperatures in the low 90s.
Expect hot and humid conditions Thursday and with a weak cold front approaching scattered showers and thunderstorms are possible. High temperatures will be near 90.
Behind the front, our temperatures drop slightly into the middle 80s for Friday.
Saturday & Sunday- both days look dry and warm with temperatures in the upper 80s. After Thursday our next best chance for showers arrives Monday.
