Showers Saturday, Summer Heat Sunday

The humidity makes a comeback this weekend. A warm front will keep skies mostly cloudy on Saturday along with the chance for a shower or two.  There’s no need to cancel outdoor plans. But keep in mind that you may have to step inside briefly if a shower moves over your town.

While Saturday is not a wash out, there’s no question that Sunday is a better beach day. You may want to start reserving your spot in the sand now. We could hit 90 degrees (or warmer) for the first time this summer! There is a chance for an isolated late day storm on Sunday. But most towns will stay dry.  There is a better chance for thunderstorms Sunday night and Monday. Some could be strong, followed by less humid conditions on Tuesday.

Summer heat remains into the middle of next week with temperatures flirting with 90 degrees several days in a row.

Tonight: Becoming a bit more humid. Chance for a shower, especially towards daybreak. Low: 65-70.

Tomorrow: Mostly cloudy, chance for a few showers or an isolated thunderstorm. High: 78-83.

Sunday: Partly sunny, hot and humid. Chance for an isolated late day shower or thunderstorm.  High: 85-93.

Monday: Partly cloudy, thunderstorms likely. Some could be strong. High: 83-87.

Tuesday: Sunny, warm and less humid. High: 84-89.

Wednesday: Hot without the humidity. High: 85-90. Chance for a late day shower or thunderstorm.
