FORECAST IN DETAIL
Very pleasant weather joins us for the first several days of summer (summer officially began at 1:45 a.m. EDT yesterday). Today, tomorrow and Wednesday temperatures will be at or below average (which is in the mid-80s for highs) with manageable humidity levels. Yes, we could see a sprinkle or isolated shower at some point. But, by and large, we're talking about dry weather with a pleasing breeze from the north. Later this week and into next weekend, we return to the all-too familiar humid pattern with daily thunderstorm chances.
Today (Monday): We'll have a mix of clouds and sun today, though clouds may become more prevalent during the afternoon. It will still be a pretty nice day with high temperatures right around 80 and a breeze from the north at 10-15 mph. Confidence: Medium-High
Tonight: Partly cloudy and pleasant. Lows will reach around 60 in the cooler suburbs with mid-60s downtown. Confidence: Medium-High
Keep reading for the forecast through the weekend....
Tomorrow (Tuesday): A partly sunny day not much different than today is in the works. We'll remain locked between a stalled area of low pressure off the coast, which will provide cloud cover, and high pressure building in from the northwest, which will attempt to suppress any showers. Highs should reach the low 80s, with a breeze continuing from the north around 10 mph. Confidence: Medium-High
Tomorrow Night: Under partly cloudy skies, temperatures should fall to the mid-to-upper 60s downtown with low 60s in the suburbs. Confidence: Medium-High
We should enjoy one more pleasant day on Wednesday before the humidity begins to build. As the low off the coast finally moves away, high pressure will take over. So we should have more sunshine than the previous days, boosting temperatures back up to the mid-80s (right around average). Overnight, it will be mostly clear, with lows 65-70 (suburbs-city). Confidence: Medium-High
Thursday and Friday, the humidity returns along with late afternoon and early evening shower and thunderstorm chances (30-40%). Highs both days should reach 85-90. Overnight lows should be in the mid-60s to around 70. Confidence: Medium
At the moment, both weekend days look warm and humid, with the chance (30-40%) of afternoon and evening thunderstorms. Highs should be near 90, with lows in the upper 60s to low 70s. Confidence: Medium
