Forecast: Sticky to Stormy Saturday
We're forced to endure a hot one today but then temperatures start trending downwards. Cold fronts will power through the region late today and Monday triggering thunderstorm chances. Widespread severe weather is not likely today, but may be a more significant risk on Monday.
Hot w/ chance of P.M. t'storms. Near 90. Today will be a bit sticky and bordering on the uncomfortable but, frankly, tame compared to last Saturday's inferno. Temperatures will climb into the upper 80s to near 90. Factoring in the humidity, it will feel like 90-95. Partly to mostly sunny skies will prevail most of the day, but storm clouds will likely develop during the late afternoon. There's a 40% chance of thunderstorms between 3 and 7 p.m., with the greatest concentration likely north of town.
Overnight, there's a 50% chance of showers and storms area-wide, but the heaviest storms will probably be in the northern half of the region. A few storms could produce strong winds and some hail. Most showers/storms should clear late at night, except east of I-95 where a few showers could linger into the morning hours. Low temperatures will be in the mid to upper 60s.
Keep reading for the forecast for Sunday into early next week. See UnitedCast to see if you'll stay dry at tonight's game.
Becoming mostly sunny, not as humid. 83-87. Clouds and a few showers in the eastern parts of the area should clear by mid morning. Everyone should enjoy a partly to mostly sunny afternoon. Temperatures will be about five degrees cooler than today and the humidity will be less noticeable. There will also be a refreshing, light breeze from the north at about 5-10 mph.
A LOOK AHEAD
Monday's weather will start off tranquil but may end on the active side. A strong, dynamic cold front will approach the region and may well trigger some strong to severe late afternoon and evening thunderstorms. Prior to any storms, it will be partly sunny, with highs in the mid 80s. Confidence: Medium-High
Tuesday will be partly cloudy and cooler with highs only near 80. Confidence: Medium-High
