Slow moving front keeps storms a possibility

SLOW TO GO:  As high pressure tries to squeeze in today, blocking flow to the east keeps the cold front from moving very much today.  So seasonably warm air stays in play and the humidity doesn’t go anywhere.  Highs today hit the middle 80s.  We’ll see enough energy to for showers and thunderstorms for the evening hours.  So, once again, storms could bring gusty winds and hail.  Tonight, we bottom out in the middle 60s as the storms fade.


Friday looks like a pretty good start to the weekend.  Morning fog gives way to afternoon sunshine.  A stray storm is possible with the heat of the day and the front so close to us.  Highs hit the middle 80s.

WEEKEND:  We’re looking at a great start to the weekend.  Saturday will be mostly sunny with middle to upper 80s.  Rain chances stay minimal, with a shot at a late shower or storm for a few.  Sunday, our next storm system approaches.  Scattered showers and thunderstorms are possible through the day.  Highs are in the middle 80s with partly to mostly cloudy skies.


NEXT WEEK:  Storms linger into Monday, with a secondary front moving through for Tuesday.  Expect early showers and storms Monday, and then another batch for Tuesday.  Highs hit the middle to upper 80s.  Cooler and drier air should spill in for the second half of next week.

Have a fantastic Thursday!
