Hit-or-miss storms expected this weekend with more heat next week
Another system brings showers into the region this weekend
- Shower chances return late tonight
- Hit/miss shower/storm Saturday
- Warming up next week; 90s
Skies continue to turn mostly cloudy into the evening. Our chance for rain gradually builds in. Overnight temperatures will be in the 50s and low 60s.
This low pressure system should bring scattered rain chances overnight and into the first part of Saturday. At this time, it looks like the best chance of showers Saturday would be in the morning and through early afternoon. A few spotty showers are possible to remain in the area for Saturday afternoon and evening. Best advice? Have an umbrella nearby just in case you get caught in one of the stray showers. Sunday will be mostly dry, but again an isolated shower/storm is possible to form mainly in the late afternoon and evening hours.
Highs on Saturday will read in the mid-upper 70s/low 80s. By Sunday we are near seasonable with highs in the upper 70s and low-mid 80s. Humidity gradually builds back in during the weekend with dew points reading in the upper 50s and low 60s.
HOT & HUMID FOR NEXT WEEK
Looks like next week brings back the 90s for some of us. By Monday, some of our hometowns will push into the upper 80s and low 90s with humidity on the rise. Get ready for hot and humid conditions to persist for at least the first half of the next work week.
No tropical development is likely in the next 3-5 days.
