MUGGY WITH STORM CHANCES
A cold front and its attached area of low pressure continue to slowly approach from the northwest this evening. While we’re waiting, a northwesterly flow helps to push some showers and thunderstorms this way. This evening, there’s a chance for a few of these thunderstorms along the southwestern parts of the area, namely Franklin and Adams counties. During the overnight period, this chance persists for the entire region. It’s another muggy and warm overnight period with lows in the upper 60s to lower 70s. Wednesday the storm system crosses the region, making scattered showers and thunderstorms likely, especially during the afternoon hours. High temperatures reach the lower to middle 80s depending on sunshine and storm coverage. Overnight Wednesday, skies gradually clear out and dry out.
MAINLY DRY PERIOD
A bubble of high pressure settles across the region through the end of the week. This keeps Thursday and Friday mainly dry. There isn’t a big change in air mass behind Wednesday’s weather system. So expect the mild temperatures to continue and slightly less humidity. High temperatures overall reach the middle to upper 80s.
WATCHING THE HOLIDAY WEEKEND
A few pieces of energy up in the atmosphere try to spark a few thunderstorms Saturday, but the day shouldn’t be a washout. A better chance for scattered showers and thunderstorms returns Sunday into Labor Day with the passage of our next cold front. Highs hover in the middle 80s. A cooler and more comfortable air mass coincidentally rushes in on Tuesday, right after the unofficial end to summer. High temperatures fall into the 70s.
