Thursday will be a very warm day with record-setting or near record setting temperatures. Highs will be in the 80s with lower 90s possible in our western counties. There will likely be an elevated to near critical fire weather concern due to the very warm temperatures, humidity values falling into the teens and twenties and south to southwest winds of 15-20 mph with higher gusts. Recent rainfall may temper some of the fire weather danger.
A dryline/front will move through the region on Friday, and there will be a potential for elevated fire weather danger behind the front due to northwest winds of 10-20 mph and humidity values in the teens to lower 30s. Temperatures will be slightly cooler on Friday but still above normal.
Historical trends suggest there is a slight correlation between our average winter temperature and the temperature of the following summer. However, a warm summer is not guaranteed just because winter 2016-2017 has been very warm. The warmest summer on record was preceded by only the 64th warmest winter. The warmest winter on record led to the 14th warmest summer. The Climate Prediction Center is calling for above normal temperatures during the summer months.
The next chance for rain and thunderstorms will be during the first half of next week as a fast-moving upper-level trough swings through the Plains. There are still uncertainties about the timing as well as the potential for strong or severe storms, so continue to check back for updates!
