  • 90s and mugginess returns Tuesday afternoon
  • Storm chances are ramping up by midweek
  • Mostly dry end to the week

Our low humidity and cooler conditions will slowly come to an end over the next few days thanks to a rapidly changing weather pattern. Plan for increased humidity and added clouds this week.

TUESDAY & WEDNESDAY

Skies will be partly to mostly cloudy with afternoon highs returning to the upper 80s and lower 90s. We officially enter Summer as the Summer Solstice begins at 5:14 AM Tuesday as the sun’s rays are on the Tropic of Cancer. Temperatures look to stay hot and humid on Wednesday with highs in the upper 80s and mid 90s for some locations. Models are pointing toward a storm complex and a cold front moving in late Wednesday into Thursday morning, dropping north to south through the region.

We remain under a Marginal Risk (Level 1 out of 5) for severe storms Wednesday. Scattered showers and storms may drop south into the region Wednesday evening.

Clouds increase and give way to scattered showers and storms late Wednesday.

LATE THIS WEEK

Thursday through Saturday we remain quiet, dry and warm as we wait patiently for another chance of storms. By late in the weekend, shower/storm chances will increase over our area as our next front moves in.
