After a so-so weekend in the weather department, we return to the workweek with a summer-like pattern on the horizon. Humidity levels have been building and we expect it to be a rather muggy stretch through Thursday. Highs each day will climb into the 80s with some areas making a run at 90 by midweek. Given the heat and time of year a stray thunderstorm may develop each afternoon on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. The best chance to see this activity would be along ridge tops where the added lift in elevation can help to form a couple of weak storms. Typically that means the western part of our region is in line to see these hit-or-miss storms.
The best chance to see a little rain this week if from a cold front that will cross the region on Thursday. The timing of that front is a little suspect right now, ranging anywhere from morning to night based on a variety of forecast models. Right now we're leaning toward seeing some scattered t'storms Thursday morning but that may change. It also doesn't look to be all that widespread given the time of day. Typically our strong storms from cold fronts occurs later in the afternoon when the heat of the day just piles on to the ingredient list needed for severe weather. Right now that doesn't look to be in the cards.
Next weekend is looking pleasant with seasonal temperatures. There may be a couple of storms on Sunday, otherwise it should be a quiet weekend with comfortable conditions.
