A quiet night expected with just a few passing clouds. Dewpoints have come up so we’ll start to feel the humidity more, especially, through the day tomorrow. You’ll notice a much warmer start Thursday morning as lows start off in the mid to upper 60s.

A cold front sags south but doesn’t quite make it through the area. It will sag close enough to help trigger isolated showers and thunderstorms in the afternoon. The heat and humidity will be much more noticeable too. In fact, many areas may reach 90 with some spots into the low 90s.

The front will oscillate back and forth for a few days. That means with the heat and humidity continuing, we will have the threat for isolated thunderstorms again Friday. Highs will flirt with 90 again too. A better chance for scattered showers and thunderstorms come Saturday as the front, along with the some upper level energy, push through the area. Highs will be not be as warm but will still reach the upper 80s. It remains humid for the day as well. Models differ on what happens Sunday. Some keep the front close enough to bring a chance for isolated showers or thunderstorms; another has it dry for the day. Either way, don’t cancel outdoor plans, as most of the day looks to be dry. Early next week, it remains warm in the 80s and thunderstorms will be possible daily.
