Temperatures in the 80s for the rest of week
After several days of sweltering heat — daily in the mid to high nineties — a cold front is moving over our area, leading meteorologists to forecast the rest of our week to consistently be in the eighties. That to many will be a cool delight (pun intended).
It will start to decrease slowly, with the high today at 88° F, according to www.weather.com. The morning and late evening will lower down toward the sixties. It will stay the same on Wednesday with the high at 88°.
Thursday is when it will get the coolest. Another cold front will sweep through our area bringing the high to only 80°, however, will also bring (as of right now) the potential for severe thunderstorms and a 70% chance of rain, according to meteorologists.
That threat of storms will continue through Friday with a 40% chance of rain and scattered thunderstorms, although the temperatures will remain much lower than they have been, with the high Friday predicted at 82° and the low, 67°.
The cold front and rain chance will be moving out of our area by the weekend, and with that, an increase in temperatures, back to what we’ve been seeing. Saturday will warm up to 88°. Then Sunday the high is 92°, and Monday it will be back up to 95°, with lows in the seventies.
According to the National Weather Service, the remainder of next week looks to maintain mid to high nineties.
This forecast report is based on the time of this writing, so as can commonly happen with the weather, this may change. Stay tuned to eParisExtra.com for weather updates and the severe storm potential on Thursday, as we will be monitoring the forecasts for our area and will keep you posted.
