More clouds, a bit cooler for Wednesday but still dry

Forecast

Clouds return for Wednesday, showers by Thursday...

THIS EVENING: Mostly Clear, Temperatures Falling Into the 70s.

TONIGHT: Increasing Clouds Late. Lo 62.

WEDNESDAY: Mostly Cloudy. Hi 76.

What a gorgeous summer’s day! Wall to wall sunshine this afternoon and highs in the 80s. Two things that rarely happen together! Skies will stay mostly clear this evening, but clouds will increase again tonight as a southeast flow ushers in low clouds off the east coast. Unlike today, these clouds will have some staying power for Wednesday as we may not clear out completely during the afternoon. This will hold temperatures in the 70s for most, but we will stay dry.

Scattered showers will return for Thursday ahead of a weak disturbance moving up the coast. Depending on if we get some afternoon clearing, temperatures may climb closer to 80. The warmest and most humid day this week will be Friday immediately ahead of a cold front. The arrival of the front along with some stronger upper level winds means we will have some organized thunderstorms develop Friday afternoon and evening. It’s still too early to tell if severe weather will be a big concern, but given the strength of the system and how humid we’ll be ahead of it, strong storms will be possible.

The front may linger along the southern tier on Saturday, close enough to keep a few storms in the forecast. By Sunday morning, cooler and much drier air will build in. Highs to start next week will only be in the low 70s, but skies look mostly sunny so very comfortable, gorgeous weather to get outside! Overnight lows may dip into the 40s for some Sunday night.
