Hot with scattered rain and T-Storms; Climate Cast live Friday at State Fair

Heat Wave Day #6

Another 90+ day today makes six in a row, the longest stretch of 90s this summer. That makes 15 days of 90 degree heat this summer above the average of 13 days.

A weak frontal boundary is kicking off scattered showers and thunderstorms through tonight. There is a slight risk a few of the storms will pack high winds and hail.
