More cool weather is in the area for today and temps will stay below normal for a couple more days. Summer conditions will return for the weekend and that means a chance of a few storms as well.
If you mistake today for a mid-September day, that is okay, because it will feel more like Fall once again. We will have sunny to partly cloudy skies and highs in the upper 60s to low 70s. Winds will be out of the North around 5 to 10 mph. With clearing skies and calm winds tonight, low temps will once again be on the chilly side for Wednesday morning, dropping into the 40s. Otherwise, Wednesday will be a little warmer as winds turn more to the west and southwest. We should have a fair amount of sun Wednesday afternoon with highs in the low to mid 70s.
The clouds will be more prevalent on Thursday as a weak warm front tries to move in from the west. This developing front will produce a small chance of spotty showers but a lot of the area will probably stay dry. The clouds will keep high temps from climbing too far but we should still experience low to mid 70s.
Friday is when it will feel more like Summer again with highs around 80. It will also turn a little more humid in the afternoon. The warm front will still be over our area, so there will still be a slight chance of a shower or storm. The chance of scattered storms will rise up to the 30% range on Saturday and Sunday as the warmth and humidity build. Highs on Saturday will be in the low 80s and on Sunday in the mid 80s. It looks like the highest chance of stronger storms might be in the Sunday night time frame.
Have an excellent Tuesday! Meteorologist Justin Loew, 4:30 a.m. 4-August-2020
