EVENING: Warm And Muggy, Temps In The 80s.
TONIGHT: Muggy, Storms Early. Lo 74.
SATURDAY: Hot & Humid, Stray PM Storms. Hi 88.
SUNDAY: Less Humid, Dry. Hi 83.
The initial round of showers and storms are now east of the area, but we continue to watch another batch of storms developing across western PA. These storms will likely weaken, but we still expect some showers with embedded storms overnight.
High temperatures for Saturday still flirt with 90°, but the front will pass during the afternoon. This may set off a few showers or storms. The rain should not be as widespread as the past few days though.
Sunday should be a delightful day, and a nice break from the high heat and humidity. Highs will be in the low 80s with much lower humidity.
Next week could become interesting with Tropical Depression Fred impacting the Southeast as early as Monday with slow-moving rain. Based on the pattern, we expect that moisture to be funneled north into the region as early as Tuesday, lasting likely through Wednesday night. Rainfall amounts are very uncertain at this time, but a soaking rain does appear to be solidly on the table.
