Forecast: Continued Pleasant Today & Tomorrow
A warmer, more humid weekend; still not bad
Today: Mostly sunny; a little more humid. Low 80s. | Tonight: Partly cloudy & comfortable. 60-65. | Tomorrow: Partly sunny. Low 80s. | A Look Ahead
FORECAST IN DETAIL
July so far has averaged 5 degrees below normal, and similar temperatures, along with ample sunshine, will continue today and tomorrow. Humidity will be higher both days than yesterday's nearly fall-like dew points in the upper 40s, but it will be far from uncomfortable, especially for this time of year. The weekend will feature warmer temperatures and chances for typical mid-summer afternoon & evening thunderstorms -- but, again, nothing too uncalled for, as temperatures & humidity levels increase to just "normal" levels.
Today (Thursday): As high pressure begins to move offshore today, winds become more easterly, and we'll see more humid conditions than yesterday's near-total lack of humidity, but we still hold onto mostly sunny skies and below-normal highs in the low 80s. A rogue thundershower (less than 20% chance) could pop up during the late afternoon or evening, but primarily south and west of town. Confidence: Medium-High
Tonight: Plan on partly to mostly cloudy skies with the lingering chance of a wildly stray thundershower during the evening hours. Pleasant lows will drop to the low-to-mid 60s. Confidence: High
Keep reading for the forecast through the beginning of next week.
Tomorrow (Friday): The last day of the work week will feature continued partly to mostly sunny skies and modest humidity levels. Highs once again will only make it into the low or possibly mid-80s. Chances of an isolated afternoon or evening thunderstorm are again less than 20%. Confidence: Medium-High
Tomorrow Night: Partly cloudy conditions prevail on Friday night with little to no chance for precipitation and overnight lows eventually settling in the mid-to-upper 60s. Confidence: Medium-High
It'll be warmer on Saturday ahead of an approaching cold front. I think we're in for at least partly sunny skies, with afternoon highs ranging from 85-90 and moderate humidity levels. We've got a 50/50 shot at scattered thunderstorms, and an isolated storm or two may linger into the evening hours Saturday. Overnight lows will range from the upper 60s to the low 70s. Confidence: Medium-High
By Sunday, the cold front will likely have pressed south of the area, but it will be close enough to warrant the continued chance for scattered storms. We may, too, see more in the way of clouds than sun, and slightly cooler highs than Saturday generally in the mid-80s. Partly cloudy Sunday night, with lows in the upper 60s for most spots. Confidence: Medium
Similar conditions will persist as we head back to work on Monday, with a blend of clouds and sun (though perhaps, still, more of the former), and scattered showers and thunderstorms, especially south of town. Highs stay in the mid-80s, with overnight lows near 70. Confidence: Low-Medium
