Hot and humid weather continues, storms chances increase for the weekend

Forecast

Storm chances increase again by the weekend...

TONIGHT: Mostly Clear, Muggy. Lo 70.

THURSDAY: Hazy Sun, Hot & Humid. Hi 92.

FRIDAY: Hazy Sun, Hot & Humid. Hi 94.

Thunderstorms have had a hard time starting off today with only a few locations seeing rain. Overall this trend will continue over the next few days. There just is not enough forcing to kick start the storm activity, unlike earlier this week. As a result the warmth and humidity are stuck. Tonight will be sticky with dewpoints hovering near the nighttime low of 70°.

Thursday should be storm-free, but the steam bath continues locally. A front to our west will likely hold off until late Friday. Best chances for storms Friday will likely be to our north and west but we will have to monitor the projections of where the storms could go. Either way we do not expect widespread coverage of storms. Highs will likely be in the low 90s Thursday and Friday.

Saturday and Sunday meanwhile will feature more downpours and t-storms as a cold front approaches and then stalls over the area. Next week may finally bring an end to the high humidity and feature more seasonable temperatures with less stormy conditions. Some long-range models do show the front from the weekend hanging around into next week, but we’ll remain optimistic about the forecast for now.
