The heat and humidity return this week, along with storms

HEAT AND HUMIDITY RETURN

The humidity is slow to climb Monday but is here in full force the rest of the week.

After a beautiful day today, skies remain clear tonight with comfortable conditions. Lows drop into the lower 60s. Monday, high pressure slides east shifting our winds. This allows the humidity to slowly climb so by afternoon, you are noticing it more. Highs are warmer in the middle and upper 80s. Most of day is dry with plenty of sunshine!  A late day shower or thunderstorm can’t be ruled out but a greater threat for showers and thunderstorms returns Tuesday.  Expect scattered activity in the afternoon and evening. It is hot and humid in the upper 80s and lower 90s.  Because the front stalls across the area, it is hot and humid, a few stray storms are possible

Wednesday too. It remains very warm and humid through the end of the week.   It’s a hot day Thursday with highs in the lower 90s.  We’ll have to watch for late afternoon and early evening thunderstorms.  The threat continues into Friday as a cold front finally sweeps across the area. Readings Friday are not as warm and drop back a few degrees into the middle and upper 80s.  The humidity begins to drop by evening as drier air works in for the weekend.
WEEKEND OUTLOOK
Expect a spectacular couple of days with lower humidity and temperatures. Plenty of sunshine for Saturday and Sunday too.
