Rowan weather: Hot, humid, getting hotter

We’ll continue the trend of hot and humid today, and it’s another Code Yellow air quality day.

It will be mostly sunny and 88 today, with northwest wind at 3-5 mph. We’ll have a 30 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms, mainly after 3 p.m. Less than a tenth of an inch of rain is expected.

Tonight, the 30 percent chance of showers and storms will taper off around 9 p.m. It will be partly cloudy and 68, with light north northeast wind.

Friday will be mostly sunny and 87, with east northeast wind at 3-8 mph. Friday night’s low will be 67, with partly cloudy skies.

Saturday will be mostly sunny and 88, with light winds. A 20 percent chance of storms and showers moves in Saturday night, which will be partly cloudy and 70.

Sunday, Father’s Day, is going to be a sizzler, with a high of 93 and mostly sunny skies. Find somewhere cool to celebrate Dad. The low will be 72.

As the heat builds into the upper 90s, it’s a good idea to check on neighbors and pets to make sure they have a place out of the sun and a way to cool off.

Neither humans nor animals should be left in a car during the heat, as temperatures can reach as much as 140 degrees inside a vehicle.

Monday will be even hotter, with a high of 95 and sunny skies. The low will be an uncomfortable 74.

Tuesday will be mostly sunny and 95 with a 30 percent chance of showers and storms. The same chance is possible Tuesday night, with a low of 74.

And Wednesday will have a 40 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms, but it will still be mostly sunny and hot, with a high of 94.
