A Steamy Start

June is off to a hot and dry start - here's a look at some of the latest numbers!

After a wet and cool month of May, things have changed around dramatically for the first week of June. We have already had several days with high temperatures in the mid 90s, some of those days getting close to record highs.

To go along with all of this unseasonably hot weather, we have also had very dry conditions. So far this month, no measurable rainfall has been recorded at McCormick Observatory at the University of Virginia. In a typical June, we would expect to see around 4.50" of rainfall.

The forecast in the short-term doesn't provide much relief. Hot and humid conditions are expected through the middle of the work week as our next heat wave begins. Highs will once again climb into the upper 90s, with the heat indices between 100 and 105 degrees! As we look at the extended forecast, there may be some encouraging news. A front will approach our area on Thursday, bringing at least a few showers and storms in the afternoon. This front will likely stall out keeping a few showers and storms in the forecast through the weekend.

Stay cool,
