This Weekend: Hot, Hot, Hot
I know, I know, the “weekend” does not start until Saturday, but when it comes to the weather pattern, it might as well start tomorrow.
NWS issued this special advisory yesterday in regards to the hot weather expected starting on Friday:
I know we’ve said this already, but I’ll say it again. Heat is not something to mess around with. Whether you are planning to be outside all weekend for CMA Fest, or even if you are planning to have a good BBQ, everyone needs to take precaution with any type of outdoor activity this weekend.
Be sure to drink WATER, apply sunscreen, and go into the shade if needed.
That it should be; for water.
Alcohol will make you MORE dehydrated, so stick with WATER this weekend. If you think you’ve had enough water, continue drinking that water. Water should be your best friend this weekend. 🙂
Friday our winds will shift to a more Southerly flow helping to bring our temps into the 90s. No rain is in the forecast, only sunny, clear skies.
Saturday appears to be the day where we could see the hottest temps of the year so far. The current all time high sits at 100°, so we will be very close to that all time record. The sun will be out in full force on Saturday, and with the high temps, Saturday is the day to take the most precautions when being outside.
On Sunday, while most models suggest a completely rain-free day with temps in the 90s, we do have one outlier that wants to “rain on our parade”. Chances are very small and appear to go south of us, but it is worth mentioning since many people have outdoor plans.
This weekend does look great weather wise. No rain and plenty of sunshine. The key is to be proactive when going outside to enjoy the sunshine. Know the symptoms of heat related illness and follow the safety tips provided by the NWS to ensure an even better weekend.

Next Week: Looks to be Hot, Rain Uncertainty
As we head into next week, model guidance is a bit difficult. Most models are showing our temps staying in the 90s through most of the week. We may get a break in these temps with the assistance of some rain.
Models are not agreeing when or where we will see rain, but at some point next week, we will get some of that much needed rain. The NWS has precipitation chances starting on Monday and extending through Friday.
