EVENING: Hazy Sun, Hot. Temperatures in the 80s (near 90° early).
TONIGHT: Clear & Calm. Lo 68.
THURSDAY: Hazy Sun, More Humid. Hi 90.
Highs were near 90° earlier this afternoon with some humidity, but not oppressive conditions. This evening temperatures will stay in the 80s. It will likely stay dry too, save a for pop-up storm over the ridges and valleys. Tonight will be clear and calm with lows in the upper 60s. Thursday will feature more of the same with slightly higher humidity and dry conditions.
T-storm chances increase by Friday and the weekend as an approaching front gets closer to the region. The reason we will likely stay dry for the next 2 days is the lack of a trigger mechanism such as a front. That won’t be the case this weekend with a few t-storms popping up during the afternoon and evening hours. However, the storms won’t be widespread so outdoor activities this weekend should be okay, just monitor the radar and we will keep you updated on the forecast too of course. Next week starts off less humid before warm air starts invading again by Tuesday. Enjoy these hazy, lazy, crazy days of summer!
