FINALLY A BREAK IN THE HEAT WAVE

We may have seen our last official 90 degree day.  Our forecast is for 90 tomorrow but increasing clouds may hold us in the 80s.   Winds shift to the southwest but remain light.  Dew points rise once again into the 60s and 70s making it feel more humid.  A few  showers and thunderstorms are possible during the afternoon but the best chance is during the evening and overnight.

We could pick up a .10″ to .5″ by late evening with much more arriving Friday.  Some areas by the end of the week could see as much as an 1 inch or more.  High temperatures drop back to the mid and upper 80s Friday.

WEEKEND OUTLOOK:

High pressure keeps most of Saturday dry but our next frontal system arrives late in the evening bringing a return of showers and possible thunderstorms.  Highs Saturday with some sunshine, should warm to the middle and upper 80s.   An easterly flow sets up overnight into Sunday keeping clouds pretty thick for the second half of the weekend.  Low pressure moving through brings a good chance for showers and a few thunderstorms.  Temperatures will be held in the lower 80s.
