Rising temperatures continue, rain chances diminishing until next week

Showers move in tomorrow morning before skies dry and clear in the afternoon.

CONTINUING TO WARM: Temperatures continue to rise for the rest of the week. Afternoon Thursday temperatures hit the mid-70s with overnight lows in the mid-50s. Clouds increase late tonight into tomorrow as a storm system weakens over the commonwealth very early in the morning. Heavy showers diminish quickly as they push into our area, with light-to-moderate rain during the morning commute. We’re done by the end of Rush Hour for most with clearing skies for Friday afternoon. Highs hit the upper-70s and near 80-degrees to finish the week.

Temperatures rise back into the 80s by next week.

SPLIT WEEKEND: We start the weekend off with rising temperatures once again. The mid-to-upper 70s will dominate with partly sunny skies for Saturday. A stray shower will be possible. Overnight lows in the 60s yield to mid-80s Sunday afternoon. Thunderstorm chances return, a few could be strong with the high humidity and temperature values as we finish the weekend.

Rain chances stay with us through early next week.

INTO NEXT WEEK: An active weather pattern continues heading into next week. We keep the 80-degree range for afternoon temperatures and mild morning lows on either side of the 60-degree mark. Current guidance suggests thunderstorm activity Monday and Wednesday and otherwise partly cloudy skies for the first half of the work week.
