MUGGY/FEW STORMS: Tuesday remains warm and muggy, with shower and thunderstorm chances once again. There’s a small chance for an isolated morning shower, otherwise, it’s a warm and soupy start. Some patchy fog and haze are likely too. A weak secondary boundary renews the threat for a few thunderstorms during the afternoon, but any activity is isolated in nature. The brunt of the shower and storm activity forms along the eastern half of the region for midafternoon. There’s a small chance for a strong to severe storm, with damaging winds and small hail the primary threat. Afternoon high temperatures are in the middle 80s.
MIDWEEK BREAK: A bubble of high pressure briefly builds in, and this brings a return to dry conditions Wednesday and Thursday. Humidity levels drop a bit too. Highs run near or slightly below seasonable high temperatures for this time of year. Readings are in the upper 70s to lower 80s on Wednesday, and then in the lower to middle 80s on Thursday.
HOLIDAY WEEKEND STORM CHANCES: Our next cold front brings a return to shower and thunderstorm chances as we welcome the month of July. On Friday, the cold front brings the chance for showers and thunderstorms. The mugginess is back, with temperatures in the lower to middle 80s. Saturday an isolated shower or thunderstorm is still possible, but it looks like a mainly dry day. Conditions remain mainly dry for Sunday. Highs are in the lower to middle 80s through the 4th of July weekend. The 4th of July holiday itself features an area of high pressure sneaking into the area. It’s sunny, with highs seasonable in the middle 80s.
Have a great Tuesday!
