Hit & Miss T-Storms As The SE Plains Broil AGAIN!

Scattered hit and miss thunderstorms remain in our local forecasts today and tomorrow across the southeastern plains. Our chances for measurable rainfall are only in the 20% to 30% range.

A better chance for scattered thunderstorms with isolated locally heavy rainfall possible exists across the Sac's today into the upcoming weekend. 

It will continue hot across the southeastern plains with highs today into Friday ranging from 101º to 105º. By the weekend our afternoon highs soar back up close to 107º - 110º. 

Long-range forecasts continue to look dismal as far as drought relief is concerned and a much needed break from the brutal summer heat. I'm hoping El Nino will do its thing and cause a pattern change later this month towards cooler and wetter weather but so far I don't see that happening...yet. 
Goodbye July & Good Riddance!
