StormTracker 9 Forecast with Meteorologist Max Crawford

Today's Forecast

Today's Forecast Image
  • 98°
  • 74°

Under pressure!  The dominant weather pattern for the rest of the week will be a big ridge of high pressure that will continue to increase afternoon temperatures into the weekend.  The good news, after a few days of triple digit temperatures, it looks like temps will moderate a bit going into the beginning of next week, with maybe some rain chances as well.

Beat the heat with these few tips: 

1) Wear sunblock/sunscreen

2) Stay hydrated with appropriate fluids

3) Limit outdoor activity

4) Remember the kiddos and pets (walking pets in the morning is best because of the cooler ground)




Wednesday:  Mostly sunny and hot.  High near 98.  Winds E/SE 5-15 mph and gusty at times.

Wednesday Night:  Mostly clear and mild.  Low near 74.  Winds E/SE 5-15 mph.

Thursday:  Mostly sunny and hot.  High near 100.  Winds E/SE 5-15 mph.
