Dangerous heat today; change tomorrow

Hope everyone had a great 4th of July weekend. The weather was pretty nice, but you may have noticed it heating up a bit yesterday and highs were close to 100 degrees. We will be right back in that ballpark again today just ahead of a cold front that will drop the temperatures about 10-15 degrees heading into Tuesday and Wednesday.

The real question is how far south will the storms get tonight. Right now, it looks like the organized area of storms will definitely stay north of I-70, but there could be one or two storms that develop and hold together just south of the interstate. Storms will track east to start, but may turn a little more southeast around 10 or 11 p.m. tonight. Some hail and gusty winds will be the main threats.
Best chance for any severe storms will be late Monday evening
Tuesday and Wednesday will be cooler days. Highs Tuesday afternoon will come down into the 80s for most of the state. Should turn out to be pretty nice weather actually.

Forecast highs for Tuesday afternoon
Millie and I ended up working a big chunk of the holiday weekend, but did find a little time to slip away to Marion Lake on Saturday. The wind was quite gusty, which made the water rather choppy, but we still managed to get wet and cool off. We had a great time. Millie is a pretty good swimmer, but I'm so protective of her, I never leave her side just in case. I know with her little legs she can't swim as far, so I'm always right there with her.
