FORECAST IN DETAIL
Despite being the first Code Orange air quality day of the year, today's lower humidity and lack of storm chances are an improvement over yesterday. Both return tomorrow along with highs in the 90s as a cold front approaches. Said cold front brings temperatures back down a bit for Friday through the weekend, with highs mostly in the 80s and shower/storm chances persisting in the low to moderate range.
Today (Wednesday): The air mass is just as warm behind the boundary that brought us thunderstorms yesterday, as highs head for the upper 80s to near 90 today. The main difference is the humidity, which should be lower today than the past couple days, but still noticeable. And, no thunderstorms to deal with today -- just mostly sunny skies. Confidence: High
Tonight: Mild and increasingly muggy tonight as humidity edges up again. Skies should be mostly clear through the evening with some increasing clouds possible late. Lows probably don't go any lower than the upper 60s to low 70s. Confidence: High
Keep reading for the forecast through the weekend...
Tomorrow (Thursday): An approaching cold front means a pretty good chance (60%) for late afternoon/evening thunderstorms that could be heavy rain producers. Otherwise, it's a partly sunny and humid day with highs mainly in the low-to-mid 90s. Confidence: Medium
Tomorrow Night: Thunderstorm chances continue around 60% through the evening before likely dissipating overnight as less humid air tries to make inroads. Lows should be upper 60s to low 70s once again with mostly cloudy skies through the night. Confidence: Medium
Cloud cover may stick around through a portion of Friday morning before partly sunny skies take over and temperatures reach highs around the mid-80s. Humidity should be lower, but enough moisture and energy may remain in the atmosphere to generate a couple isolated thunderstorms during the afternoon or evening. Confidence: Medium
Typical summer fare awaits us this weekend. Both days should be moderately humid with morning lows in the 60s, afternoon highs in the 80s, and afternoon/evening thunderstorm chances in the 30-40% range. Confidence: Medium
