FORECAST IN DETAIL
Almost half of our June days have heated up to 90 or higher, and we may add another today. We catch a break from this kind of heat for a few days mid-week, but it comes right back for the end of the week and the weekend. Will we get any rain? Like the last few days, showers and storms enter the forecast at times, but probably miss more than hit. The best chance of any activity might be tonight and late Wednesday with chances remote Thursday and Friday.
Today (Monday): As we head back to work, the heat and humidity stick around though the humidity is a shade less oppressive than yesterday. We'll have considerable cloudiness at times, but should have enough sunshine to get close to 90. During the afternoon, there's a 30% chance of showers and thunderstorms. Confidence: Medium-High
Tonight: A weak cold front passes through the region, offering a 30-40% chance of showers and thunderstorms. Like the last several days, chances are better you won't see the rain than you will. After midnight, the rain threat abates, with lows 65-70 (suburbs-city). Confidence: Medium-High
Keep reading for the forecast through the weekend...
Tomorrow (Tuesday): Somewhat cooler and drier air settles in from the north so Tuesday's a slight improvement. I think we'll have sunshine for most of the day, with seasonably warm highs of 80-84. Late in the afternoon, clouds may increase as a disturbance approaches the region. Confidence: Medium
Tomorrow Night: Showers and thunderstorms are a possibility overnight (20-30%) but more likely west of the region -- closest to a disturbance heading eastbound. Lows range from the low 60s in the cooler suburbs to the upper 60s downtown. Confidence: Medium
A disturbance and associated weak front swing through the region Wednesday, giving us our best chance of rain all week -- though it's not a sure thing at 50-60%. The most likely timing would be afternoon and evening, with variably cloudy skies prior to that. Temperatures remain seasonable, with highs in the low-to-mid 80s. Storms may linger into the evening, but then skies clear late at night, with lows 60-68 (suburbs-city) Confidence: Medium
Thursday is probably the nicest day of the week with abundant sunshine and relatively low humidity. Highs reach the low-to-mid 80s. Clear and comfortable Thursday night, with lows 58-66 (suburbs-city). Confidence: Medium
We begin to heat back up on Friday though the humidity remains in check (in the moderate range). Highs head into the mid-to-upper 80s with lots of sunshine. Clear to partly cloudy Friday night, with lows 61-69 (suburbs-city). Confidence: Medium
All indications are that next weekend become increasingly hot and humid. On Saturday we probably climb back up to 90, and possibly into the low-to-mid 90s on Father's Day. Afternoon/evening thunderstorm chances return over the weekend, but only about a 20% shot on Saturday, rising to 30-40% on Sunday. Saturday night's muggy lows probably only drop into the 70s. Confidence: Medium
