Forecast: Summer Sun and Storms
The first weekend of summer will deliver weather in keeping with the season. For the better part of both days, we'll have a mix of sun and clouds, warm temperatures and a touch of humidity. But a summer forecast isn't complete without a mention of thunderstorms. And those will be possible both weekend afternoons and evenings -- with the greatest risk and coverage on Sunday.
Partly to mostly cloudy. A few storms late. 84-88. With winds from the south today (at about 10 mph), it will be somewhat more humid than the past several. The added juice in the atmosphere may fuel scattered late afternoon or evening thunderstorms (30% chance), but quite a few places should stay mainly dry for outdoor activities. Temperatures will be seasonably warm, maxing out in the mid 80s.
Overnight, a 30% chance of showers and thunderstorms lingers, with most of the action probably east of the metro area. Temperatures drop down to near 70 in the city, mid 60s in the suburbs.
Keep reading for the forecast for Sunday into early next week. See NatCast to find out your chances of staying dry at tonight's game.
Mostly cloudy, p.m. t'storms threaten. 82-86. Sunday will be a lot like Saturday, but with elevated humidity and thunderstorm chances. The best chance of storms will be late in the afternoon and into the evening (50% chance) as the cold front triggering the storms draws closer. A few storms could be on the strong side, with damaging winds and hail a possibility. Temperatures will reach at least the low 80s and, if we get enough sun, even the mid or upper 80s.
Overnight, a few storm may stick around through mid to late evening, with partly cloudy skies after midnight. Lows temperatures reach the mid to upper 60s.
A LOOK AHEAD
As the cold front that triggered Sunday's storm is slow to pull away, a few storms remain possible on Monday (35% chance), especially east of the metro area. Otherwise, expect partly sunny skies with highs in the mid 80s. Confidence: Medium
High pressure builds into the region on Tuesday giving us mostly sunny skies, lower humidity and high temperatures in the mid 80s. Confidence: Medium-High
