Muggy Friday morning, dry air arrives Friday afternoon

Forecast

Damaging winds and heavy rain possible this afternoon & evening...

THIS EVENING: Clearing skies. A stray shower or storm. Temps in the 70s.

TONIGHT: Gradual clearing, still muggy. Low 70.

TOMORROW: Less Humid, Breezy. Hi 82. Winds: NW 5-15 mph.

Although we were in a Tornado Watch today, much of the area just experienced a period of showers with embedded storms that were not severe. As we move into the rest of this evening, we expect some sunshine with only an isolated shower or storm.  

Expect gradual clearing overnight as remain mild and muggy. Much drier air arrives by Friday afternoon which will feel very different from recent weeks. With clear skies and low humidity, temperatures will drop into the 50s for daybreak Saturday morning! Saturday continues comfortably cooler with a mix of clouds and sun. Sunday still features less humid conditions, but a stray storm or two will be possible by evening.

A look ahead to next week shows a lack of oppressive summer heat and humidity. Daytime temperatures will peak in the mid 80s. It will start to feel a little more muggy by midweek, which is when we see increasing chance for stray pm storms.
