TONIGHT: Mostly Cloudy, Muggy. Lo 72.
THURSDAY: Stray PM T-Storm, Warm & Humid. Hi 87.
FRIDAY: Mostly Cloudy, A Stray Shower/Storm. Hi 88.
All flash flood watches and warnings have been canceled as the heaviest rain has dissipated or moved out of the area. Some places received 1-2″ of rain over 60-90 minutes. Besides these locations, a few more pop-up showers and storms are possible too across the Midstate with the muggy air in place fueling any storm activity this evening. Other than the chances for a few showers and storms, tonight will be mostly cloudy and muggy with lows in the 70s.
Thursday and Friday bring additional clouds and the opportunity for hit-or-miss showers and storms. We do not expect a lot of rain each day, but it will certainly be warm and muggy. Friday will likely be cloudier than Thursday thanks a consistent easterly breeze.
This weekend may also stay somewhat cloudy as a slow moving area of low pressure pivots south of the Commonwealth. We may remain dry or see a few light showers from this system. We will continue to monitor the trends in the forecast. Temperatures for the weekend likely peak only in the mid-80s instead of the low to mid-90s that have been common so far this week.
A better chance for showers and storms could occur next Monday as a strong cold front ushers a stretch of cooler and less humid conditions for next week. There is higher confidence of a comfortably cool stretch arriving next Tuesday and lasting through much of next week.
We also have a new tropical depression deep into the Atlantic. We will continue to watch the track of this storm and give you updates. This system will likely be named Josephine in the coming days. For the most part, however, the tropics are quiet…for now.
