Forecast: Humidity Goes into Brief Hiding

By Jason Samenow

The humidity bordered on oppressive yesterday but the rains came overnight and now we dry out. Noticeably sticky humidity should off until the coming weekend but we won't get much of a reprieve from the hot weather. While we hold below 90 today and tomorrow, 90+ weather returns Wednesday through Sunday.

Chance of A.M. showers, then partly sunny. 81-85 A cold front clears the region this morning, bringing a stray shower on its way out, especially east of town. By afternoon, the sun should be shining and drier air will stream in on winds from the northwest at 10 mph.

Clear and comfortable overnight, with lows dropping to 65 in the city to near 60 in the suburbs.

Confidence: Medium-High

Keep reading for the forecast through the week.


Mostly sunny, beautiful and warm. 83-87. The best day of the week will be tomorrow when a relatively cool breeze from the north keeps us safely below 90 and the humidity comfortably low.

The overnight hours will be pleasant for the second straight night, with lows dipping down into the mid 60s in the city to around 60 in the suburbs.

Confidence: High


High pressure and a strong mid-July sun mean dry and very warm (some might say hot) conditions Wednesday through Friday. Highs will generally be in the low 90s and humidity levels will very slowly creep upward, but should stay below oppressive levels. Confidence: Medium-High

The coming weekend may be a lot like this past weekend. Hot and humid, with a slight chance of thunderstorms to close out Sunday. Temperatures both days will probably range from 90-95 with moderate to high humidity. Confidence: Medium
