PM Update: Heat and humidity clobber region
Storms tomorrow? How's the weekend look?
The sun made a pretty solid return today, though there are still some lingering clouds out and about. Temperatures are climbing to and past the highest levels we've seen since the first days of the month as highs reach the upper 80s and low 90s. Good news for people wanting a little more spring? We're already halfway through this summer preview, though tomorrow's part two is looking a little more intense on both the heat and humidity side.
Through Tonight: A summery evening and overnight is ahead -- thankfully we'll see mostly clear skies. Temperatures fall through the 80s as we head toward sunset. Dew points now in the mid-60s will stay in that range or continue to slowly rise toward 70. There's no mistaking those numbers as humid! With all the moisture in the air, lows only fall to around 70 across the area.
Tomorrow (Thursday): Thursday is looking like one of those days where you'll sweat waiting for the bus in the morning and then again each time you head outdoors. Lots of sun helps temperatures soar through the 80s by lunchtime before ending up near 90 and into the low 90s during the afternoon. By evening, thunderstorms that should form well to our north may be charging south into the area. Any storms could be strong to severe, with wind damage a threat.
