Quiet for now, then the heat goes back on

June 6, 2017: Enjoying the quiet, comfortable weather so far this week? It’s been nice to take a break from the sudden blast of summer heat that arrived last weekend.

High pressure keeps northeasterly winds around, so our forecast stays roughly the same until Friday.

Futuretrack RPM model valid June 6 for Friday, June 9th, 2017. Scattered showers and thunderstorms are possible early in the morning, then a second round potentially in the afternoon.

By Friday, scattered showers and thunderstorms pop up early Friday morning, with a second chance in the afternoon.

After that, we say “good-bye” to the cooler northeasterly flow, and “hello” to windy conditions from the southwest. This blows in the high heat and humidity again, so Saturday through early next week will hover around 90° (if not into the 90’s for a few days). Get the fans, A/C, and backyard pools ready!

We typically see 15 days on average in the 90’s in Rockford each year. We already have one, and may double or triple that mark by early next week.

Stay cool, friends!
