FORECAST IN DETAIL
We stick with the stickiness through most of our weekend, as we battle highs in the 80s to near 90 along with our usual summertime shower and storm chances. The greatest chance of storms firing comes Sunday as a cold front approaches. The front should sweep out the heat, humidity and any showers and storms in time for a more spring-like start to the next work week.
Today (Friday): Highs climb to near 90 and it'll be humid, but we're getting used to that I guess. Partly sunny skies give way to increasing clouds later in the afternoon, and possibly more showers and thunderstorms (40% chance) in the late afternoon into evening. The potential for severe storms is lower than yesterday, but any storms that do form could be strong. Confidence: Medium
Timing: Late afternoon into evening
Tonight: Skies likely remain mostly cloudy with a 40% chance of evening showers or storms persisting. If you have outdoor plans for the evening, I'd hope for the best. But I'd also recommend taking a small umbrella in case the skies open up. Lows "cool" to the low 70s to near 70 most spots. Confidence: Medium
Keep reading for the forecast into next week...lower humidity? sunshine?
Tomorrow (Saturday): This forecast is probably starting to sound familiar: A mix of clouds and sun with muggy highs around 90 and a 30-40% chance of afternoon showers and storms. Stay hydrated and plan to check radar before heading out for any afternoon plans. Confidence: Medium
Tomorrow Night: A 30-40% chance of an early-evening storm. Then just mostly cloudy with still not exactly "comfy" sleeping weather -- muggy with lows in the upper 60s to low 70s. Confidence: Medium
Sunday: The approach of a cold front increases shower/storm chances to around 50%, mainly in the afternoon. The front probably also means more clouds -- I'll call it partly to mostly cloudy for now -- and that should cap highs in the still-humid 80s. Confidence: Low-Medium
Sunday night, showers and storms may persist into the evening (40-50% chance) depending on how slow the cold front moves through. Once it does pass by, humidity should start to drop as overnight lows cool off to the low-to-mid 60s. Confidence: Low-Medium
Monday & Tuesday look to be a nice change of pace -- sunnier and less humid with highs in the upper 70s to mid-80s. Confidence: Medium
