CommuteCast: Humidity's Unwelcome Return
Hot and humid Wednesday; storms late?
Mostly sunny skies today have allowed temperatures to rise into the upper 80s to near 90 degrees across the region this afternoon. A wind coming from the south and southeast is helping pump up the humidity across the area, and the comfortable conditions of yesterday are quickly disappearing. Skies should remain mostly clear through the evening.
Tonight: If you left the windows open last night for some fresh air they will probably go back into the "keep humidity out" closed position tonight as the A/C preps for another workout. Lows should fall to the upper 60s in the suburbs and low 70s in the city under partly cloudy skies and a light south or southeast wind.
Tomorrow: Wednesday is shaping up to be one of those uncomfortable late-July days that many of us despise. A sultry morning will lead to afternoon temperatures reaching the low and mid 90s. These readings, combined with high dewpoints, will bring heat indices close to 100 degrees across portions of the area. Temporary relief from the heat could come in the form of scattered late day showers and thunderstorms, some of which may be strong.
