Turning more humid, stray storms Thursday and Friday

Top Stories

Another heat wave potentially kicks off Friday...

THIS AFTERNOON/EVENING: Hot & Dry. Hi 90.

TONIGHT: Increasing Clouds, Muggy. Lo 70.

THURSDAY: Stray AM Shower, PM T-Storm. Hi 87.

We have hit and broken 90° again today for a high temperature and that is now the 9th time this month we have done that! Fortunately if you don’t appreciate humidity, our humidity has dropped this afternoon as drier air has mixed down from up above decreasing the dewpoint to the upper 50s! This is about as good as it gets. For this evening we can anticipate fair conditions with dry weather holding strong. Temperatures drop to the 70s tonight as clouds begin to thicken.

Clouds and the humidity will be on the increase for tomorrow. A few light stray showers can’t be ruled out in the morning, but otherwise we can expect a slightly cooler day with mainly dry conditions. Chances for showers and a few thunderstorms will increase later in the day, however the main action with rain and storms will be over western PA. We will likely see some of the leftover showers and thunderstorms later in the evening and overnight ahead of Friday.

A stray storm will likely pop-up Friday afternoon, but after the rain late Thursday and Friday we likely we won’t see much. Friday and the weekend will feature more 90° heat. By early next week an approaching front brings the chances for a few storms as the heat likely reaches a peak, but more 90° heat will likely be on its heels as this hot month continues.
