Hard to believe it is early August! Temperatures feel more like fall. We started cool in the 50s this morning and while it won’t be as cold, it will be another comfortable night before the humidity returns.
Winds shift to the south tonight as high pressure moves eastward helping to pull in more moisture. Clouds will thicken overnight, lows will be in the low 60s. A warm front will slowly move into the area tomorrow bringing a slight chance for isolated showers in the morning but a better chance for a few stray showers in the afternoon and evening. Highs will be kept to the middle 70s with the clouds and possible showers.
Wednesday looks to have a better chance for more organized rain showers as overrunning pattern sets up. South-southwesterly flow will draw warm, moist air up into the area producing light precipitation which will pick up in intensity later in the day. The warm front is expected to lift slowly to the north providing additional lift for showers. Depending on how much we warm up, there could be a few thunderstorms that develop but clouds may inhibit as temperatures stay in the upper 70s.
Thursday we are in the warm sector so temperatures will finally have a good chance to warm into the mid 80s. Still a threat for showers and storms exist.
Cold front weakens as it approaches Friday but may trigger showers and storms. Temperatures will warm in the low to mid 80s. There will be a secondary front on Saturday that may keep the shower threat around but it won’t be a washout by any means.
Sunday looks very nice to round out the second half of the weekend rain free and highs in the low 80s.
