HOT AND MUGGY:  A ridge of warm air has nudges itself into the Commonwealth and we’re talking about a very summer like feel to the next two days.  We’re starting mild with some areas of fog this election day Tuesday.  Highs today will top out in the upper 80s with plenty of summer like humidity to go along with it.  The warmth continues for Wednesday as well with upper 80s in the cards.  Today, we’ll only see a tiny chance for a shower or thunderstorm.  Tomorrow, chances look a bit higher to see some storms.  Some could be potent with damaging winds or hail.  We’ll be watching it.

Voting Forecast

It’s a warm day, but the weather should not be an issue to get to the polls today. There could be a stray shower or storm later today.

COOLING OFF:  A front slowly slices through on Thursday, dropping temps back into the upper 70s for highs.  We’ll see scattered showers and thunderstorms for the day, and again some could be potent.  The rain looks to taper on Friday, but models are struggling with how fast this system moves out.  We’ve introduced a small rain chance in the forecast for Friday.  It will be much cooler though with temps near 70°.

MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND: The holiday weekend looks mild and dry with low humidity.  Temps will rise to near 70 on Saturday and Sunday with plenty of sunshine!  Monday looks to feature a few more clouds and highs making it to the low to middle 70s.  Enjoy!

Have a great Tuesday!  Don’t forget to exercise your right to vote today!
