Today offered a nice break from the heat and humidity. Clouds held tough and there were a few light showers south of the turnpike. While most of us will be dry, there can be waves of light showers that linger into the overnight particularly across the southern tier. Overnight clouds will keep temperatures from falling below 70.

It will start to turn warmer and a bit more humid again tomorrow as the front wobbles northward again. Highs will be in the upper 80s with a few light showers still possible, but mainly during the morning. Most of the ‘real juice’ will be south of the area so heavy storms or widespread rain are not expected. It will turn noticeably hotter Thursday with highs back in the low 90s. A few afternoon storms may develop, but coverage looks spotty at this point.

A cold front will move through on Friday bringing some showers and thunderstorms with it. Once again, it will likely be feast or famine with any rainfall. Some communities will see some storms while others remain dry. Behind the front, high pressure builds in for the weekend, keeping sunshine around along with low humidity and seasonable temperatures. Enjoy it because all signs are pointing toward another possible heat wave toward the middle and end of next week.
