FORECAST IN DETAIL
The heat and humidity really get going over the next couple days with downright tropical air in on us tomorrow. All that moisture in the atmosphere translates into an isolated storm chance this evening and a better chance of showers and storms by late tomorrow and Friday. As for the holiday weekend, we're not ready to make any rock-solid guarantees, but things do look encouraging for less humid conditions with decreasing rain chances.
Today (Wednesday): The morning starts much like yesterday with temperatures rising through the 60s into the 70s. But by lunchtime we'll probably be in the upper 70s to near 80 (noon temps yesterday had only reached the low 70s). And afternoon highs aim about 10 degrees higher than yesterday, in the upper 80s to near 90. Add in partly to mostly sunny skies, moderate to high humidity, and an isolated late afternoon or evening thunderstorm and we have a very summery day. Confidence: Medium-High
Tonight: Muggy and mild are the keywords for tonight with partly cloudy skies, an isolated evening storm and overnight lows mainly in the upper 60s to low 70s. Confidence: Medium-High
Keep reading for the forecast through Memorial Day...
Tomorrow (Thursday): Get ready for a partly sunny, hot and very humid day with highs near 90 or in the low 90s. A few showers and thunderstorms could develop during the late afternoon or evening, with the chances of getting wet at any given location about 30%. Confidence: Medium
Tomorrow Night: We'll stay muggy through the evening with shower/storm chances increasing to around 50% through the overnight. A few evening storms could be strong to severe. Overnight lows are mild again -- upper 60s to low 70s. Confidence: Low-Medium
A little coastal low pressure may get into the action Friday, keeping shower and thunderstorm chances (50%) going through the day and possibly into Friday night, though high pressure trying to nose its way in from the north may tend to dry things out as we get into the evening hours. Mostly cloudy skies most likely hold highs to the 70s. Confidence: Medium
Our hopes for a pleasant Memorial Day Weekend rest on the strength of an area of high pressure trying to exert control over the region. I'm not ready to rule out lingering clouds and shower chances Saturday, but odds are pretty good the high will be strong enough for a mostly sunny Sunday and Monday. High temperatures should gradually warm -- 70s to near 80 on Saturday and Sunday with low humidity, and in the 80s to near 90 on Monday with humidity headed toward the moderate range. Confidence: Medium
