Hot & Humid, Scattered Showers and Storms

HOT WEEKEND WEATHER: A mix of sun and clouds today allowed temperatures to climb well into the 90s this afternoon. Our winds have become more southerly as well, and that is allowing dew points to climb, meaning more humid conditions. A warm and muggy night ahead, with a few lingering showers mainly before midnight, lows in the lower 70s. For tomorrow, a near repeat of today, with highs in the 90s, we should see a few more showers and storms, but overall, a mix of sun and clouds, with hot and muggy conditions.

THE WEEK AHEAD: A fairly typical summer-like week of weather is expected. A moist, unstable air mass will remain in place, we will have scattered showers and storms around on a daily basis. Best chance of showers and storms comes during the peak heating of the day, 2-8PM, but with this type of air mass, we can’t rule out a late night or morning shower. There is no way to forecast when and where these storms will develop, but just be aware that there is the daily chance of showers and storms. Of course no washouts, the storms last about 30 minutes, no need to cancel plans, but jut be prepared. The main concern with storms we have this time of year is lightning. If you can hear thunder, you can be struck by lightning; remember when THUNDER ROARS, GO INDOORS! Days next week will feature a mix of sun and clouds, and afternoon highs will be generally in the upper 80s and lower 90s.
