The weather, currently.

80s and chance of thunderstorms for Monday, July 11th. 

Hate the heat? Boy, do I have good news for you. We have a short reprieve from hot weather for Monday as a cold front moves through the state. That means that we see temperatures drop 15 degrees or more tomorrow down into the 80s. We also see chances of storms for Monday as well.

Here are the 3 things you need to know about your Monday:

1) Morning will be cooler with temperatures in the 60s and 70s.

2) Afternoon will be cloudy with temperatures in the 80s.

3) Chance of evening thunderstorms for most of the Metro.

What you need to know, currently.

In the latest Currently Explainer, Currently’s managing editor, Zaria Howell, spoke with some of our meterologists regarding how to survive extreme heat and wildfires. As the summer stretches on, it’s important to be aware of the many ways you and your community can prepare for severe weather events.

First, it’s important to assess your home’s susceptibility to wildfires using the government’s Fire and Smoke Map. It also helps to have a plan in place. Check your home’s smoke detectors to ensure that they’re working properly and make sure that you know where all your home’s exits are. If you find yourself in a fire, stay low to the ground. And, in the aftermath of any fire or extreme heat, continue to seek out ways that you can increase your community’s resilience.
