A stagnant pattern for now, until a storm arrives Thursday

Posted: Updated:

Readings ranged from 85° to 88° on Tuesday. Four degrees away from an official record but still very stable and dry. The air quality will remain poor. Soot, dust, and pollen are the main culprits. Poor air quality can impact your health, so health professionals advise anyone with respiratory disorders to limit outdoor activities and do not over exert yourself.

Late Thursday afternoon and evening, a squall line with widespread showers and storms containing wind and hail. Tornadoes cannot be ruled out, but this will be secondary to this set-up right now. Even with a tornado watch, we will keep a watchful eye out. There could still be some weakening as these storms move farther east.
