Cloudy and muggy tonight, widespread rain possible Friday with a coastal storm

Top Stories

Not much relief from the heat coming anytime soon...

TONIGHT: Mostly Cloudy, Muggy. Lo 72.

THURSDAY: Mostly Cloudy, Stray Shower. Hi 90.

FRIDAY: Cloudy with Showers, Mostly for Eastern Counties. Hi 87.

After a round of heavy rain for some places, sultry conditions remain tonight. Any organized showers or storms are over for the night as well with temperatures dropping to the low 70s. Tomorrow will feature more clouds but mainly dry weather with highs back up near 90.

Models continue to shift further inland with Friday’s coastal (and potentially tropical) system. Right now, we are targeting places east of the river for heaviest rain, though widespread showers and storms appear plausible for most of the Mid-state. Widespread flooding concerns are not expected at this time, though some places could pick up a couple inches of rain where heavy rain fell earlier in the week. It appears the most heaviest rain and storms will be Friday afternoon before exiting Friday night. We’ll continue to monitor.

The weekend will feature a continuation of hot and humid weather with widely scattered storms anticipated mainly on Saturday. Daily chances for storms will continue into early next week, with all indications pointing toward another very hot spell of weather beyond next Tuesday. Keep staying cool!
