First Alert Forecast: hot, not as humid Thursday

Our weak, summertime cold front has pushed south of us and dry air is working in from the north! Expect sunny and dry conditions across the area today, with only a stray shower or storm possible in our southernmost counties. High pressure to our north will keep us dry through the start of the weekend before winds eventually shift back out of the Gulf of Mexico. Temperature-wise, anticipate highs in the mid 90s today and upper 90s Friday afternoon.

Thanks to that aforementioned return of southerly winds into the weekend, mugginess will creep back in by Saturday. This uptick in moisture could aid in the development of a few showers and storms for our southern counties by the afternoon hours. Better chances for scattered showers and storms for all of us are anticipated Sunday.

From there, the rest of the 7-day forecast will be very typical for this time of year! Scattered showers and storms each afternoon/early evening, with highs reaching the low-mid 90s across the area.
