  • Humidity continues to increase this weekend
  • Few showers and storms possible Sunday afternoon
  • 90s return for the start of the week with daily rain chances

THIS WEEKEND

High pressure remains off the Mid-Atlantic coast allowing for a rise in humidity this weekend. It’ll be another mild night with partly to mostly cloudy skies. Some fog is possible as well.

Sunday looks similar with morning clouds and some afternoon sunshine with highs in the upper 80s. However, there will be a better chance for afternoon storms, but any activity looks to be most west of the Blue Ridge.

NEXT WEEK

The week ahead will begin mostly quiet thanks to the influence of high pressure to our east for Monday and Tuesday. Still can’t rule out an isolated shower/storm here or there given the summer heat. Afternoon highs will reach the mid and upper 80s with areas along and east of the Blue Ridge back into the 90s at times.

A Summer-like pattern returns for the weekend and next week.

The latter half of the week looks more active for our area as the high pressure moves away from us. An area of low pressure will move through the Great Lakes and its associated cold front will bring more rain and storm chances. At this time the best chance could be on Thursday and Friday.
