RAINY MORNING: Our next storm system moves through for much of Thursday, and it brings widespread showers and a few rumbles for the morning commute. A steady rain falls through about 9 A.M., at which point the rain ends along the eastern parts of the region. The region slowly dries, but isolated showers and thunderstorms are still possible through about early evening. There’s still a chance for an isolated strong to severe Rain Breakdownstorm during this timeframe, but chances have dropped over the last 24 hours. Strong wind gusts and heavy downpours are possible with any stronger storms. Conditions turn quieter as skies partially clear for the latter portion of the day. The system could stall to our south, and this would bring the chance for a few isolated showers on Friday. Highs both days are in the upper 70s to middle 80s. Humidity levels are a bit lower too.



SUMMERY WEEKEND: A typical summery, sunny weekend is ahead for the region! Both Saturday and Sunday feature abundant sunshine. Plenty of warming takes place through this time. Highs are in the middle to upper 80s Saturday, and then push 90 degrees on Sunday. Humidity levels slowly nudge up as well through Sunday.



NEXT WEEK: Monday our next system slowly approaches, but conditions are trending drier as the system’s speed slows down. Monday is still hot with added clouds. Expect high temperatures near 90 degrees once again. The front finally crosses through Tuesday. It’s warm on Tuesday, and the humidity lingers. Temperatures fall back into the 80s. Wednesday brings partly cloudy skies and seasonable temperatures.



Have a great Thursday!
