Western's Weather Wrap: Hot Father's Day Weekend

Friday afternoon Future Radar Friday afternoon Future Radar Storm threats today Lightning safety
Lisa Bryan | 17 June, 2018, 16:33

Thankfully, the dew points remain on the comfortable side, making for more of a "dry" heat as opposed to excessive heat, which will be knocking on our doorstep by Monday.

TONIGHT | Mainly clear skies with a veil of high clouds.

Temperatures up to 105 degrees during the afternoon and early evening each day due to temperatures in the upper 90s, and dewpoints in the lower 70s.

Another very important factor to keep in mind is that overnight low temperatures in the "Chicago Heat Island" will probably not drop below 80 degrees both Saturday and Sunday night, allowing little or no relief from the incessant heat.

In the past, heat advisories were issued in NY when the heat index reached 100 degrees or more.

Monday night heading into Tuesday will give West Michigan another chance for showers and storms before we work back towards more sunshine.


Hot temperatures and noticeably higher humidity levels are expected for central Pennsylvania this weekend and into early next week, according to forecasters.

"Studies and research conducted by the collaborative show that emergency department visits and deaths from heat increase significantly on days when the heat index reaches 95 degrees Fahrenheit or higher", a memo from the weather service headquarters said.

Monday: Scattered thunderstorms late. A few storms will be possible each afternoon.

Sunday: Partly sunny, hot and humid.

Understanding the chance of rain in summer: How in the world can you apply a 10%, 30% or 50% chance of rain to what's really going to happen? One difference is that we will be tracking an isolated storm or two showing up across the Bluegrass producing some quick hitting showers.

Another round of locally strong storms today will be followed by quieter weather over the weekend.
