TONIGHT: Showers & T-Storms After Midnight. Lo 65.

TUESDAY: AM Showers/Storms, PM Clearing. Hi 81.

WEDNESDAY: Warm & Muggy, Few Showers After Sunset. Hi 88.

Today felt like mid-summer! Highs made it near 90 and it was quite humid out there. Tonight will be muggy but should be fairly quiet through at least the early overnight hours. Meanwhile, a powerful complex of storms (possible a derecho, or long lived damaging wind event) will be organizing over the Great Lakes. This complex will dive southeast overnight, with ingredients most favoring severe weather just west of our region. Still, we’ll see some showers and storms arrive locally close to sunrise. Gusty winds and heavy rain are possible, but again, any damaging wind concerns should stay over the western half of the state. Tuesday afternoon looks great with clearing skies and temperatures rebounding into the low 80s.

Beyond that, while a stray shower could exist Wednesday, a better chance for a few showers and t-storms will occur Thursday. A front will eventually push through by late Friday, but before it does, showers and storms could linger Thursday night into Friday morning. Those A/Cs got a break as of late — but that’s coming to an end this week with plenty of heat and humidity most days. The good news for fans of cooler weather is that another shot of comfortable air is coming next weekend with humidity sharply dropping off by Saturday! In fact, this upcoming weekend looks absolutely stellar! Highs both days will be in the upper 70s to near 80 degrees.
