CommuteCast: An Evening Without Storms

By Ian Livingston

Beautiful summertime conditions again tomorrow

Sick of all the thunderstorms recently? Today is your day! Crystal clear skies (with occasional passing fair-weather cumulus clouds), low humidity, and a breeze from the northwest have combined to make this one of the nicest days in recent memory. High temperatures are now headed toward the mid 80s most places, and no thunderstorms are expected this afternoon or evening.

Tonight: Mostly clear and cool conditions (for late June) will settle in tonight as dew points remain low. Temperatures should fall back to the upper 50s in the suburbs and into the low or mid 60s for the city. A breezy wind from the northwest will continue during the evening before slackening a bit overnight.

Tomorrow: More mostly sunny skies visit the area on Wednesday as our break in stormy weather continues. Temperatures will probably be a few degrees warmer than today allowing highs to reach the mid and upper 80s. Light winds from the southwest are expected during much of the day.

Check out NatCast for tonight's game, and Matt's full forecast featuring a return of heat, humidity and storm chances.

So what are the long range models predicting for the 4th of July? I know we can always expect an afternoon T-Storm (as was the case last year) but what are the in depth details?

Greg: All I can give you is "Accu"-weather's 15-day forecast, which currently calls for rain. It's not a great sign, but I'd give their call only a 30% chance of coming true. Nobody--not Accuweather, not the NWS, not CapWX--can call a storm 11 days out with much confidence at all.

Just imagine if the fireworks went off in the low-lying rain clouds. Now THAT would be a sight to remember...
