PM Update: Chance of Strong Storms Saturday
Warm, muggy and mostly dry this evening
Despite mostly cloudy skies and moderate humidity, rainfall has eluded the region today with most shower and t'storm activity well to our west and southwest. Temperatures climbed into the low-to-mid 80s. Except for the outside chance (20%) of an isolated thunderstorm, it should remain dry through at least mid-evening as temperatures gradually fall back into the 70s.
Through Tonight: The mostly dry conditions this evening will probably last through the night. However, we'll keep an eye on a cluster of thunderstorms well to the northwest that will probably pass north of the region during the pre-dawn hours (just a 20% chance they impact us, mainly in the northern suburbs if they do). Outside of any storms, it will be partly cloudy and muggy, with lows in the upper 60s (suburbs) and low 70s (downtown).
Tomorrow (Saturday): Tropical flow from the south will bring heat and humidity, with temperatures climbing towards the upper 80s under partly sunny skies. During the afternoon and evening, a cold front will punch through the region, likely (60% chance) carrying along a line of showers and t'storms, which could be severe. Dangerous lightning and damaging winds will be the primary threats.
