Tuesday Afternoon Discussion

Even though temperatures were on the warm side today, it didn’t feel quite as bad thanks to lower humidity. Most of the area stayed in the 80s today and tonight we’ll enjoy another impressive cool down, with lows in the upper 50s. One of the changes we’ll experience in the coming days will be a return to humid conditions. Highs by weeks end will be in the low 90s, with moisture driving heat index values into the upper 90s. Tomorrow will start off on a mostly sunny note; however, a few more clouds will be around later in the day. Thursday will be a partly cloudy day and isolated thunderstorms can’t be ruled out over the southern half of the state. On Friday we will have a good coverage of scattered showers and thunderstorms, especially in areas to our south. The rainy weather will weaken and dissipate at night, with lows in the upper 60s.

A front will drop in and stall over the weekend and this will bring us more scattered showers and thunderstorms. The storms that develop will produce some heavy downpours and dangerous lightning. Hot, humid, and hazy conditions will continue into the start of next week and temperatures will be climbing into the lower 90s. Have a great evening and be sure to join us for complete details!
