CommuteCast: Clouds and Spotty Showers
Less humid, but hot on Friday
Widespread cloudiness mixed with occasional light showers put a lid on big temperature rises this afternoon as highs now reach mostly into the mid 80s across the region. The unsettled conditions today can actually be traced back to the remnants of Hurricane Dolly, and some additional spotty showers or isolated thunderstorms cannot be ruled out for the remainder of the afternoon into the evening.
Tonight: The cold (or cool) front will be dragged south of the area overnight, so any risk of evening showers or storms, which would be spotty at best, should end before midnight. The main effect of this front will be to bring in some drier air, which will allow tonight's temperatures to fall lower than recently. As skies trend toward mostly clear by morning, expect readings to bottom out in the mid 60s for the suburbs and right around 70 in the city. Winds will be light from the west or northwest.
Tomorrow: Friday should be mostly sunny and noticeably less humid, but rather hot. A more pleasant morning temperature and humidity regime will give way to readings quickly rising to the low 90s across the region by afternoon. A northwest wind blowing up to 10 or 15 mph throughout the day will add some relief from the heat.
