80 Within Reach Wednesday

  • Another steamy, warm day Wednesday
  • Warm & wet Thursday with showers and thunderstorms
  • Less humid Friday/Saturday
  • Big cool down Sunday & Beyond

Weather Discussion:

A little sunshine went a long way today!  High temperatures soared into the middle and upper 70s. Tomorrow will be an encore performance.

Clouds will once again roll in tonight thanks to the arrival of moisture laden air.  This means it will feel even more humid by tomorrow! Early clouds, fog and drizzle in spots Wednesday will give way to some sunny breaks.  High temperatures will soar into the middle to upper 70s again. For places that get lucky and a bit more sun, 80 degrees is within reach. An isolated shower is possible in the afternoon. But rain is more likely on Thursday.  Showers and thunderstorms will continue off and on throughout the day effectively washing away the humidity and warmth by the time the weekend rolls around.

The real chilly stuff arrives Sunday.  In fact, we might see the coolest air of the season with high temperatures in the 50s and overnight lows in the 30s.
