July is off to a hot start. For the first nine days of the month, temperatures have been six degrees above average. Our streak of 90-degree days has now reached seven consecutive days. We could use a break from the heat and one is on the way.

Behind the front we’ll see less humid conditions and slight cooler temperatures. We’ll have highs in the mid-80s this weekend with dry weather on Saturday and a chance for isolated thunderstorms Sunday afternoon.
