SCATTERED SHOWERS AND A RUMBLE

We’ll have more clouds around for Wednesday. They keep temperatures down a bit but the humidity stays high.  A weak disturbance swinging in from the Ohio Valley will trigger a few showers and possible thunderstorms. The best chance to see them is during the afternoon and early evening. Not everyone will have showers.  PM Afternoon Forecast CSV_changeable backgroundHighs climb to the lower and middle 80s. Clouds break up overnight.  Lows are quite warm in the lower to middle 70s and you can expect a very uncomfortable night with humidity running high.  It’s a very hot day Thursday with more sunshine allowing high temperatures to soar into the 90s.  And, with the humidity running high, the heat index may reach 100 degrees.  The heat index is what the temperature will feel like outside.   A cold front approaches and brings a few late day and evening showers and thunderstorms.  It pushes east by early Friday morning. High pressure builds in for the day bringing a rain free end to the week.  Temperatures do not cool off in fact, highs warm to the upper 80s and lower 90s.  Humidity is knocked back a notch.

WEEKEND OUTLOOK

High pressure will battle a stationary boundary hovering just to our south. Right now, plenty of dry hours expected for the weekend.  Waves along the front may pull it north enough to trigger a few thunderstorms but timing is difficult to pin point right now. Highs are seasonable in the mid and upper 80s.

NEXT WEEK

Monday looks warm near 90 under partly cloudy skies.  An isolated shower or thunderstorm is possible but there is a better chance for showers and thunderstorms Tuesday as a cold front swings in from the west.  Highs are expected in the upper 80s.
