Less smoke and humidity but not for long with a heat wave in store

Weather

(WOWK) — A cold front passed through the WOWK-TV viewing area on Wednesday, dropping the humidity and helping disperse some of the thick smoke in the atmosphere from wild fires in Canada. A northerly breeze will help that thinning process continue as shown in the smoke content model below.

Temperatures will drop to about 60 degrees to start Thursday and only make it back into the low to mid 80s with lower humidity which makes for a great day.

However, the break from the heat is short lived as highs get back up to about 90 starting Saturday and they stay there in that range over several days. Below is output from just one weather model but it’s indicative of the kind of highs we can see in the week ahead.

The StormTracker 13 forecast differs slightly from the models and will change a few degrees here or there but the trend overall is fairly dry and very hot.
