Forecast: Feeling fresher and finer
FORECAST IN DETAIL
The last five days we sweated through high temperatures ranging from 89-92 coupled with sauna-like humidity. I think we'll all now appreciate high temps from 79-82 for the next five days with humidity only really a factor on Wednesday, which could be on the wet side. Unfortunately, heat and humidity may build back into the region next weekend.
Today (Monday): What a day! Refreshingly dry air streams southward as the sun shines brightly. Though some fair weather cumulus clouds may dot the sky in the afternoon, highs head up to around 80 with a breeze from the northwest at 10 mph or so. Confidence: High
Tonight: Any cloud cover clears and with a crisp & cool air mass overhead, many spots dip deep into the 50s with downtown locations closer to 60. A great night to give the A/C a break. Confidence: High
Keep reading for the forecast through the work week...
Tomorrow (Tuesday): Sunshine, low humidity, a light breeze, and highs up near 80 again. If only we could bottle this day up for the weekend... Confidence: High
Tomorrow Night: Our delightfully dry air mass makes a rapid exit as low pressure approaches from the west. Clouds increase overnight, with a slight chance of showers and thunderstorms late at night or towards morning. Lows range from the upper 50s to low 60s. Confidence: Medium
As low pressure works through the region on Wednesday, showers and thunderstorms are likely (60% chance). You'll also notice an increase in humidity, though temps won't get much of a bump due to cloud cover. Highs again top out around 80. Rain showers gradually end at night, with slow clearing late, and lows 60-65. Confidence: Medium
High pressure builds back into the region Thursday and Friday meaning dry weather and seasonably warm temperatures. Highs both days should be in the low 80s, with overnight lows from the mid-50s in the coolest suburbs to the low 60s downtown. Confidence: Medium
As high pressure moves offshore for the weekend, winds come back in from the south drawing heat and humidity northward across the area. High Saturday probably climb into the mid-to-upper 80s, with 90+ possible Sunday. With the heat and humidity both days, isolated afternoon/evening thunderstorms likely re-enter the picture. Conditions are muggy overnight, with lows in the mid-60s to low 70s. Confidence: Medium
