CommuteCast: Setting the Stage for Saturday
Humidity levels rising; Severe weather tomorrow?
The work week comes to a close on a partly to mostly sunny, warm and increasingly humid note today. High temperatures are now reaching the low 80s across the area as a southerly breeze stiffens, bringing with it higher dew points, and setting the stage for the possibility of severe weather tomorrow.
Tonight: We start with mostly clear skies this evening and trend cloudier overnight. A light wind from the south will continue to transport moisture into the region, keeping lows from falling much below the mid 60s. A stray shower cannot be ruled out toward morning.
Tomorrow: Expect the day to feature at least some sunshine as temperatures rise into the mid 80s. A small chance of showers during the morning will transition to a higher likelihood of thunderstorms by mid or late afternoon. The main severe weather threats should be strong winds and large hail, but the formation of tornadoes is also a possibility. There is also a chance the main area of energy in the atmosphere stays too far north to cause widespread severe storms in the immediate metro area.
By mid to late evening, the threat of storminess begins to pass, as drier and somewhat cooler air enters the area.
