FORECAST IN DETAIL
We were finally able to remove ourselves from the heat as yesterday saw the first day below 90-degrees in about two weeks. Unfortunately, we have a second course of humid heat here in the next few days, but do not expect as much of a scalding. A cold front arriving just in time for Friday and the weekend promises to be stronger than our last one, which means an entire weekend of 80s and low humidity. Bon Appetit!
Today (Tuesday): High pressure overhead will do everything it can to keep our day mostly sunny and mostly pleasant across our area. Some humidity and cloud cover just to our south could try to creep into the southern sections where the majority of the slight 20% risk of showers or storms will be found this afternoon. Yes, humidity will be slightly higher than yesterday, but still comfortable as temperatures reach their peak into the upper 80s to low 90s. Light and variable winds.Confidence: Medium
Coverage: Widely Scattered
Most likely timing: 4 p.m. to 10 p.m.
Tonight: A continued 20% chance of mainly evening storms predominantly south and west of the city is seen, but otherwise, we can expect partly cloudy conditions with lows in the low-to-mid 70s. Light winds should mostly come from the south. Confidence: Medium
Keep reading for the forecast through the weekend...
Tomorrow (Wednesday): Those winds from the south will act like a slow drip bringing a gradual build of humidity back into the area. We will also see those temperatures slightly increase. Highs should be in the low-to-maybe-mid 90s. That humidity increase means we cannot rule out a thunderstorm, so we need to keep a 30% chance for storms, especially towards the evening. Confidence: Low-Medium
Tomorrow Night: A 30% chance of storms is included again with partly cloudy skies and warmer overnight temperatures in the mid-to-upper 70s. Confidence: Low-Medium
Thursday should be our most humid day of the week and it should also be our hottest. However, there is a risk that significant cloud cover and scattered storms/showers could fight the hotter daytime expectations. For now, we will favor highs in the low-to-mid 90s, but will watch the precipitation timing closely. The probability that you will see a thunderstorm is up around 60%. Winds should be from the southwest until the cold front passes in the evening and winds shift to come from the north or northwest. Partly cloudy skies on Thursday night with lows back down in the low 70s. Confidence: Low
Friday looks to be a spectacular sunny day with high pressure, low humidity, and high temperatures ONLY in the mid-to-upper 80s. Winds could be breezy from the north and northwest. Friday night should be a perfect cool and comfortable evening to see a ballgame (and yours truly will be enjoying the evening watching the Nats brave the Phils). Confidence: Medium
The weekend is bonus weather time with mid-to-upper 80s for highs and lows in the upper 60s to low 70s along with lower humidity. Saturday appears to be the best day right now with mostly sunny skies. Sunday looks partly cloudy, but we introduce the risk for a disturbance to pass through the area with showers (let's say a 30% chance for now). I'm currently skeptical of the threat and believe this weekend will be a much nicer alternative to our blowtorch situation from last weekend. Confidence: Low-Medium
