HEAT AND HUMIDITY RETURN

PM EXERCISE FORECAST AUTOOur brief break from the July sweltering heat and humidity ends.  With a shift in the winds to the south, temperatures and the humidity will increase.  If you are an early riser, it won’t feel to muggy and lows are close to seasonable averages in the middle 60s. Highs Tuesday climb to the upper 80s under partly to mostly sunny skies. PM Boat Forecast CSV

Along with the heat and humidity, we’ll watch for thunderstorms to develop during the afternoon Wednesday and Thursday.   Keep an eye to the sky during the afternoon and early evening as.  High pressure brings mostly sunny skies and warmer temperatures in the upper 80’s to near 90 degrees.   High pressure shifts more eastward changing the wind direction by Wednesday.  The ridge of high pressure breaks down later in the week allowing for thunderstorm development.

UPCOMING WEEKEND OUTLOOK:

As of now, it looks like part of the weekend is free of thunderstorms. Saturday, high pressure still in control brings a mostly sunny and warm day.   While not as hot, highs warm into the upper 80s.  By Sunday, the threat for showers and thunderstorms is possible as a stationary front hangs just south along the Maryland Line.  The front doesn’t budge much so the threat for a few storms hangs around for Monday too.
