TONIGHT: Stray Evening Shower, Very Warm & Muggy. Lo 75. Winds: Light.
TUESDAY: Hot & Humid, Hit Or Miss PM T-Storms. Hi 94. Winds: W 5-10 mph.
WEDNESDAY: Humid, Few Storms South Of Turnpike. Hi 87. Winds: W 5 mph.
Some spotty showers popped up today but most backyards stayed dry as expected. It was another scorcher with an official high of 94 degrees and heat indices closer to 100. The high humidity will only allow us to drop into the mid-70s overnight…keeping those A/C’s cranking!
A cold front approaches the area Tuesday, giving us a better chance for storms, albeit still not enough for everyone to see rain. Best chance for storms will come during the mid to late afternoon before the activity shuts off by sunset. Severe weather is not expected but locally heavy rainfall remains possible given the copious amounts of moisture in the air.
The heat wave finally breaks on Wednesday, with highs returning to the 80s. However, the front from Tuesday will linger and keep the humidity around with a few t-storms still possible mainly south of the turnpike. It won’t be until Thursday when the humidity drops significantly and temperatures tumble in time for the weekend. The weekend looks splendid with Friday, Saturday, and Sunday featuring more seasonable highs and very low humidity. We need the rain, but a cooler and less humid weekend will offer a nice change for many.
