We’re feeling warm and muggy out today with a mix of sun and clouds in the skies. Temperatures this afternoon will rise to the middle 80s, but could actually feel closer to 90 degrees considering our high humidity levels. There is a chance that some of us could see a few pop-up downpours later this afternoon and into the evening hours as a cold front drops into the area from the NW. Chances for any showers will come to an end as we head off to bed with temperatures a bit cooler in tomorrow morning the middle 50s.

Friday’s forecast will feature more comfortable and less humid conditions as drier air filters in across our area. Temperature’s tomorrow afternoon are expected to top out in the upper 70s to right around 80 degrees. It will be a sunny and beautiful way to end off the work week. Dry and quiet conditions will stick around through this weekend as temperatures gradually warm back up and moisture creeps back in. By Sunday, we’re looking at temperatures back in the middle 80s.

We will start of the week ahead on this upcoming Monday feeling warm and humid in the mid 80s. The chance for showers and a few storms will also be possible with a frontal boundary forecast to push in from the north. We will dry out on Tuesday before another cold front moves in here by Wednesday bringing another opportunity for showers and potentially storms. Cooler and less humid weather are expected to return by the end of the work week.
