Muggy overnight, scattered storms develop Tuesday afternoon

Forecast

Best chance for rain comes later this week...

OVERNIGHT: Muggy, Stray Showers. Lo 72. Wind: S 5-10 mph.

TUESDAY: Humid, Scattered PM T-Storms. Hi 88. Wind: W 5-10 mph.

WEDNESDAY: Humid, Scattered PM T-storms. Hi 89. Winds: W 5-10 mph.

Aside from a few showers, the overnight will be quiet and muggy with temperatures slowly falling into the 70s. Clouds will increase and we’ll start Tuesday off mostly cloudy.

Tuesday will feature more of the humidity that we felt Monday. A weak disturbance aloft will cross during the afternoon, kicking off a few storms once the sun breaks out. Coverage should be a little higher than today’s activity, but still very hit-or-miss. With more cloud cover and showers around, temperatures are not expected to reach 90, which would end our heat wave. Either way, it will still be very warm and muggy. The mugginess will last into Wednesday with more scattered pop-up storms expected during the afternoon.

Thursday and Friday will feature our highest rain chances this weak as stronger lift arrives from the west. An east flow will develop for Friday, keeping us cooler and cloudy with periods of steady rain possible. The humidity will be more tolerable by then.

Highs will return to near seasonable levels by the weekend as a cold front swings through and a trough settles into the Northeast. While we can’t promise the weekend will be completely dry, it doesn’t look too bad for outdoor plans either. Mainly dry weather is expected through Monday with highs in the low 80s.
