Forecast: Blissful Weekend Weather Wise
Though dry, next week looks wet
Today: Partly to mostly sunny. 83-86. | Tonight: Partly cloudy. 59-66. | Tomorrow: Mostly sunny. Mid-80s. A Look Ahead
FORECAST IN DETAIL
Considerable sunshine and low humidity will grace the region this weekend in the wake of the sticky weather that concluded the work week. Though pleasant, it will remain dry while lawns and gardens grow increasingly parched. Most of the region has received less than 0.25" of rain all month. However, early indications are that next week's pattern will be favorable for wet weather. So enjoy the dry weather while it lasts.
Today (Saturday): A partly to mostly sunny day is in order as high pressure builds in from the west. Humidity levels will fall throughout the day even as the warm July sun warms us up into the mid-80s. Winds will be out of the west at around 10-15 mph. Confidence: Medium-High
Tonight: With high pressure continuing to build into the area, expect a mainly clear night. Some of the cooler spots will dip into the upper 50s while locations closer to downtown fall to the mid-60s. Confidence: Medium-High
Keep reading for the forecast for tomorrow and into early next week...
Tomorrow (Sunday): More high pressure and more sunshine tomorrow. With a light breeze from the north at 5-10 mph, the air will remain pleasantly dry, as temperatures climb into the mid-80s. Confidence: Medium-High
Tomorrow Night: The atmosphere will begin to moisten up as winds start to come around out of the east. The modestly more humid air and slight increase in clouds will keep overnight lows a little milder, with low 60s in the cooler suburbs and upper 60s downtown. Confidence: Medium
We may begin to feel the effects of a juicy Bermuda High Monday that will steer a good dose of moisture over the region during the week. Under a mix of clouds and sun, highs will just be in the low-to-mid 80s, but humidity will continue rising. A few showers and storms cannot be ruled out (30% chance), especially late in the day. Partly cloudy overnight, with lows near 70 (mid-60s cooler suburbs). Confidence: Medium
Mostly cloudy and humid on Tuesday, with a 40% chance of showers and thunderstorms. Highs will probably be in the mid-80s. Confidence: Medium
