Though with a chance of storms Saturday
We'll be in a period of mostly benign mid-June weather today through the start of next week with rather typical summertime heat and humidity, though most daytime highs and overnight lows will be about 3-5 degrees above normal. With the exception of scattered thundershowers on Saturday, we'll also be looking at largely dry weather.
Sunny and warm. Upper 80s to near 90. High pressure overhead will foster abundant sunshine along with warm afternoon highs in the upper 80s to near 90. Humidity, while higher than yesterday, will be tangible though not unbearable. Mostly clear and mild tonight with lows ranging from 65-70.
Keep reading for the forecast through the weekend into early next week.
Mostly sunny & warm. Upper 80s. Expect Friday to be similar to today, with plenty of sunshine, moderate humidity levels and highs in the upper 80s. The main difference is that a wind of 10-15 mph from the south may kick in by late morning, and there's a slight chance of an afternoon or evening thunderstorm.
Overnight, increasing clouds with continued mild lows, primarily in the upper 60s to near 70.
The forecast for Saturday is a bit less certain, as a weak cold front may or may not spark off scattered showers or thunderstorms -- timing looks to be afternoon or evening -- along with partly to mostly cloudy skies. It will be humid with highs once again in the upper 80s, followed by muggy conditions and a lingering shower overnight with lows near 70. Confidence: Medium
As of now, it appears the front will move out in time to allow a return to mostly sunny conditions on Sunday along with diminished humidity levels and slightly cooler afternoon highs in the mid 80s Overnight lows should range from 65-70. Confidence: Medium-High
The outlook for Monday calls for mostly sunny skies along with seasonable high temperatures in the mid 80s. Confidence: Medium
