The Shenandoah Valley Regional Airport (KSHD) made it to 94 today...this marks 6-straight days of 90+ heat which is the longest in the Shenandoah Valley since 11 in a row occurring June 28th -July 8th of 2012 (the derecho week). Today's severe storm potential was a bit of a dud with most stronger activity dodging us to the south. Convection was also limited by westerly, down-sloping winds...the all-too-common thunderstorm killer this time of year.

- Enjoy the bit of a break from the heat because the southeast ridge will rear its ugly head again this weekend into the first part of next week (more 90s).
- Tropical Storm Bill made landfall near in Matagorda, Texas around 12:35pm (11:35 CT) with max sustained winds of 60 mph
- We may deal with some of this moisture this weekend (nothing major)
