FORECAST IN DETAIL
Yesterday's storms didn't produce any severe winds or large hail. But they left their mark nonetheless with heavy and much-needed rain -- well over an inch in some spots -- along with flooded downtown streets, an injured golfer and a house fire. Conditions could support a few more storms this afternoon. What about Saturday? Most likely rain-free but rather hot, before we revert back to shower and storm chances Sunday into early next week.
Today (Friday): Skies should be partly sunny as we go through the day. Highs mainly in the mid-to-upper 80s will feel kind of sticky with a good deal of humidity, though not quite as bad as yesterday. There's a 40% chance of showers and storms this afternoon into early evening -- probably fewer storms than yesterday, but some could be severe with strong winds in addition to heavy downpours and lightning. Confidence: Medium
Tonight: Any showers and storms should diminish during the early evening -- about a 30% chance that your patio dinner or early-evening jaunt into town is interrupted. Overnight, clearing skies and lows in the mid-to-upper 60s for most of the region. Confidence: Medium-High
More storms this weekend? Keep reading...
Tomorrow (Saturday): Mostly sunny skies and highs likely in the low 90s will remind us how hot summer can be. Light winds from the south and southwest keep that moderately humid air in place. First it was the rain that doused you. Now it'll be your own sweat! Speaking of, make sure your sunscreen is water and sweat resistant. Confidence: Medium-High
Tomorrow Night: We'll see partly cloudy skies. Light winds from the south/southwest will feel somewhat balmy as lows only get down to the low 70s to near 70 in most spots. Confidence: Medium-High
Sunday: The weather gets back to its old habits. Partly sunny and humid for most of the day with highs in the upper 80s to near 90. Then a chance (around 40%) of showers and storms in the afternoon into Sunday night. Confidence: Low-Medium
On Monday and Tuesday, we'll order the usual -- humid with highs in the mid-80s to near 90 and a chance of showers and storms. Confidence: Low-Medium
