Conditions will be comfortable to start out the work week, with one day that could be wet. The heat and humidity will return for the weekend.
Be sure to enjoy the pleasant weather for today. The humidity will be low. Skies will be partly cloudy. High temps will be in the 70s. Winds will be northwesterly around 5 mph. All of these add up to a very nice day for the middle of July.
A weak low pressure system approaching from the west will bring the clouds back for tomorrow, as well as a chance of rain and storms. Temperatures will remain cooler than normal, topping out in the low to mid 70s, which means the chance of severe weather is fairly low. There will likely be some scattered showers early Tuesday, then a chance of a few storms toward the evening hours.
On Wednesday and Thursday, we will be back to nice Summer weather with low humidity and below normal temps. Highs will be in the mid 70s on Wednesday and in the upper 70s to around 80 on Thursday. There might be some clouds around early Wednesday, otherwise we should have a fair amount of sun on both days.
The humidity will return on Friday and it will stick around for the weekend. High temps will also rise above normal. Conditions will not be too hot on Friday with highs in the low to mid 80s. On Saturday and Sunday it will feel more uncomfortable with highs in the upper 80s to around 90. A couple of weak troughs of low pressure passing by to our north will be close enough to bring a chance of thunderstorms at times. There is a slight chance of a few storms Friday night, and then a 30% chance of storm activity off-and-on for Saturday and Sunday.
Have a stupendous Monday! Meteorologist Justin Loew, 4:30 a.m. 20-July-2020
On this date in weather history: 1930 - The temperature at Washington D.C. soared to an all-time record of 106 degrees. The next day Millsboro reached 110 degrees to set a record for the state of Delaware. July 1930 was one of the hottest and driest summers in the U.S., particularly in the Missouri Valley where severe drought conditions developed. Toward the end of the month state records were set for Kentucky with 114 degrees, and Mississippi with 115 degrees. (David Ludlum)
