A cold front slowly drifts across the region today, renewing the chance for showers and thunderstorms. The morning is dry, but during the early afternoon, showers and storms begin to bubble up again. Some storms could turn severe, with wind and hail damage being the primary threats. Locally heavy downpours are also possible with any thunderstorm. A Flood Watch is in effect for most of the area through the evening. Highs this afternoon will be in the upper 80s to 90 degrees. It remains sticky the entire day.
4TH OF JULY WEEKEND
Relief from the heat and humidity comes just in time for 4th of July festivities with high pressure building in. Arthur will have some influence at the very beginning. The cold front slows up Friday morning, keeping a few showers along the east/southeastern parts and clouds for the eastern half to begin the day. There’s plenty of sunshine all day to the west and northwest. Highs are near 80 degrees. The forecast is good to go for fireworks everywhere during the evening. Saturday, the sunshine continues, and even Sunday is dry. The humidity levels stay low, and high temperatures are in the lower to middle 80s through the weekend.
The humidity returns and temperatures warm up once again early next week. Monday is dry, but there’s a chance for showers and thunderstorms Tuesday and Wednesday. Highs are near 90 degrees on Monday and in the upper 80s Tuesday and Wednesday.
Have a great Thursday!
