What to expect this year:
This year is looking more like a Summer-like pattern for Boom with sunshine mixed with clouds and humidity. Also, it is looking increasingly likely that we will see weak disturbances ripple across the state for the majority of next week. While this is good news with not a concentrated rainfall or storm event for Boom, this does provide uncertainty for Boom.
At this point, I know it will not be a washout for Boom, but we will have the chance of rain for Monday night. I think it is important to keep tuned to the forecast heading into this weekend and early next week. If you are the one getting out early to keep the spot for Monday you should be fine early.
Temperature-wise, highs should be in the middle 80s with humidity on Monday, which will make it potentially the warmest Boom since 2012. It appears this will tie for the 18th warmest Boom that we have had.
