Another gorgeous and pleasant day is ahead of us! With a dry air-mass still in place, comfortable conditions are anticipated throughout our Friday with highs below average in the middle 80s. Overall, it will be a beautiful day to spend outside with all of the sunshine. Cool conditions will return overnight and into Saturday morning with temperatures expected to dip to the upper 50s and low 60s.

Quiet and nice conditions will carry into the start of the weekend on Saturday. It could feel a bit warmer out with highs forecast to top out near 90 degrees. By Sunday, moisture will begin to flow back in across the region from the Gulf as high pressure shifts east. Not only will this bring us more humid conditions, but a few PM pop-up downpours could also be possible by the end of the weekend. This trend of more summery conditions and daily chance for showers/storms will likely continue throughout the next work and school week.

We are continuing to monitor the tropics with today being the peak of hurricane season. A disturbance that has a high chance for development will track into the SW Gulf by this weekend. At his point, it doesn’t look like this will directly impact us, but will likely help bring in tropical moisture to the region. The NHC is also watching a disturbance coming off the coast of Africa that has a high chance for formation.
