MUGGIER & UNSETTLED: Our next cold front slowly approaches into the weekend, and this turns the pattern more unsettled. After a pleasant start Friday morning, the humidity increases quickly, making for quite the uncomfortable feel during the afternoon. Skies turn partly sunny to mostly cloudy as well. A few isolated afternoon showers or thunderstorms are possible ahead of the front, but most should stay dry. Temperatures are a bit warmer, with readings in the lower to middle 80s throughout the region.
WEEKEND OUTLOOK: Shower and thunderstorm chances continue for Saturday as the cold front finally crosses through. Most of the activity is concentrated around the midday and afternoon hours. It’s still hot and quite stuffy, with readings hovering in the upper 80s. Some humidity relief is finally in store for Sunday. Sunny skies return, and temperatures are in the lower to middle 80s, making for a seasonable, wonderful sunny day.
NEXT WEEK: The break from high humidity levels remains in place through early next week. High pressure ensures plenty of sunshine for both Monday and Tuesday. Humidity levels are quite comfortable Monday, and then begin to nudge up on Tuesday. Highs Monday are in the lower to middle 80s, and on Tuesday expect readings in the middle to upper 80s. Wednesday is warmer, with a noticeable increase in humidity. Temperatures are near 90 degrees. There’s the chance for a stray thunderstorm, but a better chance comes on Thursday. Highs creep into the lower 90s by then.
Have a great weekend!
