Rowan weather: More of the same

We’re in for another hot one today, with sunny skies and a high near 97. A west southwest wind will pick up this afternoon to 5-10 mph, but it won’t give much relief. Tonight’s low will be a warm 74 degrees

Wednesday, too, will be mostly sunny and hot, but down a bit to 94 degrees. Nevertheless, heat index values will be up to 100 degrees or more. That summertime 30 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms comes in Wednesday night, with a low of 71. Any storm could become severe, as we saw last week.

Mostly sunny again Thursday and a high of 95. Just a 20 percent chance of storms and showers Thursday night, with a low around 72.

The chance of rain goes up Friday to 40 percent, but skies will still be partly sunny and the high will be 93. The same chance of thunderstorms and rain showers is possible Friday night, with a low of 70.

It will be less hot Saturday, with a high of 88, but storms and showers are likely, with a 60 percent chance. It will be mostly cloudy. The rain chance drops to 40 percent Saturday night, with a low of 68.

And Sunday has a 40 percent chance of showers and storms, and will be mostly cloudy, with a high of 86. Sunday night, it’s back to that 30 percent chance of precipitation, with a low of 67.

It’s a return to mostly sunny skies for Monday, but not quite as hot, with a high of 86.
