- Hot/humid today with a chance of storms

Another hot and humid day is expected. As of 3am, it's still 82 at Holland. Needless to say, temperatures won't have to rise much to reach the 90s today. As dewpoints close in on 70 this afternoon, heat indices will rise into the mid to upper 90s. CAMs show a seasonably robust short wave lifting north today from the MO bootheel. As it arrives this afternoon, we'll see isolated convective develop within a weakly sheared environment that will see 1500 j/kg SBCAPE and PWATs near 2 inches. A marginal risk of severe storms exists for the southeast cwa mainly for the potential of gusty winds.

- Not as hot Thursday

GFS and ECMWF show a weak cold front dropping south tonight and northeast winds developing that will continue Thursday. It's likely temperatures will be a little cooler Thursday with highs around 80 near US-10 to around 90 near I-94. If the cooler trend continues in the models, we may be able to drop the Heat Advisory.
The ECMWF also showed weak low pressure riding east along the frontal boundary Thursday resulting in showers/storms over the eastern cwa. Given the humid environment in place, any storms that develop will be capable of producing heavy rain.

- Sct'd storms Friday through Sunday; highest chance Saturday night

The center of the upper high continues to drift southwest over the weekend, from the TN Valley on Friday to Texas by Sunday. Shortwaves riding around the periphery of the upper high combined with weak surface convergence and peaking afternoon/evening instability will continue to support a daily risk for showers and storms through the weekend.

The highest chance of storms comes on Saturday night when a cold front presses southeast through the region ahead of an approaching nrn stream shortwave. Deep layer shear values will be ramping up by then as the influence of the upper ridge slips away so we may be looking at a round of severe weather as that system comes through.

- Hot and Breezy Saturday

Ahead of that cold front/shortwave a surge of even warmer air arrives for Saturday with guidance temps as suggesting readings as high as 95 well inland from Lk MI. Southwest winds may gust over 30 mph.

- Dry and more comfortable Sunday through Tuesday

It is that nrn stream shortwave which ushers in less humid and not as hot weather for a few days early next week with lows in the lower to mid 60s and highs in the lower 80s. Confidence in a dry Monday is fairly high as high pressure passes overhead, before low pops creep back in with returning warm air by midweek.

Issued at 748 AM EDT Wed Jun 19 2024

BKN-OVC cigs above 12,000 ft this morning giving way to SCT-BKN cumulus/CBs around 4000 ft later today. Widely scattered tstms developing this afternoon and continuing into early evening.
Local/brief IFR conditions possible should a storm with heavy rainfall pass over a terminal, with the main risk of storms being south and east of GRR between roughly 20Z and 02Z. Southwest winds 10 to 20 kts (higher at MKG), diminishing later in the day and becmg lgt and vrbl this evening. Some MVFR cigs expected to arrive at MKG and GRR after 08-09Z tonight.

Issued at 322 AM EDT Wed Jun 19 2024
