MUGGY/FEW AFTERNOON AND EVENING STORMS

The warm and very humid conditions are leading too strong to severe storms this

afternoon and evening.  Damaging winds around 60mph, hail and heavy rainfall likely through the early evening.  Severe Thunderstorm Watch is in effect until 10pm for our eastern counties.

High pressure builds in for a couple of days to bring drier conditions and more sunshine.  We enjoy a break from the humidity before it returns at the end of the week. Highs are cooler in the upper 70s to lower 80s on Wednesday, then will climb to the lower to middle 80s on Thursday.  Our next front arrives Friday. As of now, it looks weak and does not provide enough moisture to bring widespread showers and thunderstorms.  The front slowly moves south by Saturday morning. Highs are warm in the middle 80s Friday ,and you’ll notice the humidity once again.
