Big Changes Ahead!!

Hit or miss showers and thunderstorms are possible through midnight when a cold front will sweep through the region and bring some big changes! We are not expecting any severe weather. But torrential rain could cause some brief poor drainage flooding. After two weeks of a steamy air mass, less humid air finally streams in overnight and sticks around the next few days. Get ready for a gorgeous stretch of weather!

 Wednesday through Friday will have a comfortable feel to the air. There will be abundant sunshine, temperatures around 80 degrees, and low humidity. A warming trend will start this weekend with the humidity slowly building back in. Summer heat returns! Especially next week when temperatures could approach 90 degrees.

While we are looking at a great week of weather for outdoor plans, if you need rain for the lawn or garden, you’re out of luck. Rain remains absent through the weekend into the early part of next week.

Tonight: Early showers and thunderstorms. Areas of fog. Slow clearing, turning less humid. Low: 63-66.
Wednesday: Partly to mostly sunny, dry & pleasant. High: low 80s.
Thursday: Mostly sunny, delightful. High: 75-80.
Friday: Mostly sunny, spectacular. High: 76-81.
Saturday: Sun mixing with high clouds. Turning a bit more humid. High: 82-86.
Sunday: Partly cloudy, warm and humid. High: 83-87.
