THIS EVENING: A hot and humid day along with an approaching cold front is sparking thunderstorms. The chance will continue into the evening hours then storms will end but a few showers will still be possible as the front slides east. Temperatures will fall though the upper 80s to the middle 70s.
MORNING: It starts off muggy and stuffy with just an isolated shower threat. Lows will dip to the mid and upper 60s.
TOMORROW: With the winds shifting to the northwest, drier air slowly spills in through the day. Dewpoints will drop and the humidity will too leaving us with more comfortable conditions by evening. Clouds will be persistent for the start of the day but will decrease late afternoon into the evening. Highs will be cooler in the low 80s.
OUTLOOK: The break from the heat and humid lasts into Saturday before our next system arrives. Highs Friday after a morning in the 50s will reach the low 80s under mostly sunny skies. Ridge builds in for the start of the weekend allows for warmer air to move in. Highs should get back to the mid 80s with a stray thunderstorm possible in the afternoon Saturday. Sunday a stronger cold front brings a chance for scattered showers and thunderstorms. With the front slowing and not pushing through until late Monday, the threat for showers and storms will continue for the start of the week. A deepening, unseasonable like trough digs in for early next week leading to a cooler trend with temperatures remaining well below July averages. While the rain threat will be low, sunshine will mix with plenty of clouds for several days. It doesn’t look like the trough lifts out until later in the week. Highs Tuesday will be quite below average in the upper 70s and while it will be a few degrees warmer on Wednesday in the low 80s, it will remain unseasonable through much of the week.
