Today: Sun and clouds with thunderstorms possible in the afternoon and evening; high near 90
Tonight: Thunderstorms end overnight; low in the low to mid 70s
Saturday: Scattered thunderstorms; high near 90
Sunday: More thunderstorms; high in the upper 80s
Another warm and muggy morning to end the work week. More storms ahead on this Friday, but the majority of them likely will not arrive until late afternoon and evening. If that is the case, with some sun, 90 or higher seems likely. Combined with dew points in the 70s, the heat index will approach 100 in the afternoon. Because of the heat and humidity, when storms do arrive they could be severe with wind and heavy rain the threats.
More storms will continue Friday night, but will be gone by Saturday morning. The break will not last that long, as more storms (possibly severe again) arrive during the day Saturday. We will once again be near 90 degrees and the later storms arrive, the hotter we will be, and the greater chance for more strong winds. Sunday brings more storms, but less chance for severe weather (still perhaps some heavy rain). Also, we likely will not reach 90 Sunday, but humidity will still be high. So when do we get relief? A cold front will move through Monday morning and clear out the heat and humidity. Highs Monday will be in the low to mid 80s with dropping humidity, then Tuesday and Wednesday near 80 with comfortable air for July. Eventually on Thursday as humidity starts to make a comeback the chance for a few thunderstorms will return.
