Tropical Downpours

My forecast from the news at 4

Summer heat moved out but the humidity remains for now. A cold front will wash the stickiness out of the air Tuesday night into Wednesday morning. But the change will come with scattered storms and tropical downpours.  Although it will not rain all day Tuesday, showers will be slow moving.  That means poor drainage flooding is possible in a few towns. The humidity will fall throughout the day Wednesday followed by quick clearing.  Thursday and Friday will be refreshing compared to recent days.

Tonight: Storms becoming more numerous, especially late. Low: Low 70s.

Tomorrow: Tropical humidity with scattered downpours and thunderstorms. Some poor drainage flooding possible. Southwest wind 5 to 15 miles an hour. High: Low 80s

Wednesday: Clouds breaking for sunshine, humidity falling through the day. Turning comfy. Refreshing at night! High: Mid 80s. Low: Upper 50s and low 60s.

Thursday: Abundant sunshine and low humidity. Dew point in the 50s all day. Refreshing at night. High: Low 80s. Low: upper 50s to low 60s

Friday: Morning clouds breaking for some sunshine as the day progresses. Watching a storm to the south. High: Low 80s. Low: Low 60s

Saturday: Partly to mostly sunny, nice! Turning more humid for the second half of the weekend with the chance for showers (Sunday). High: Low 80s.
