QUIET STRETCH

A stray thunderstorm can’t be ruled out this evening, however, most areas remain dry.  Any storm that does develop has the potential to produce gusty strong winds and small hail. Best chance for storm development is during the evening hours then skies clear out for the rest of the overnight. Morning lows drop to the middle 60s.  Drier air works in dropping the humidity once again.  Skies are mainly sunny and afternoon readings are back in the middle 80s.  Another dry and comfortable day expected Thursday with abundant sunshine.  Still comfortable with highs in the lower and middle 80s.   High pressure dominates into Friday prolonging the dry stretch.  It is a tad warmer in the middle and upper 80s.  The humidity slowly increases. 

WEEKEND OUTLOOK

A weak boundary approaches for Saturday and may produce a stray thunderstorm or two, otherwise the mainly dry stretch continues.   It will feel quite muggy.  Readings make a run for 90 degrees.  It’s a hot and sticky Sunday.  Skies are hazy and temperatures are hot in the lower 90s.  A stray thunderstorm can’t be ruled out, however, most areas stay rain free.  

NEXT WEEK

Shower and thunderstorm threat increases heading back into the work week.  A warm front lifting through the area Monday brings a chance for showers and thunderstorms.   It is quite sticky with the humidity running higher.  It stays steamy into Tuesday with highs in the lower 90s.  A cold front crosses the area bringing more shower and thunderstorm chances during the afternoon.  More comfortable conditions and drier air returns midweek.
