Tonight we are uncomfortable again with lows only in the low 70s and high humidity. That sticky feel will helps a few of us towards the eastern mountains, closest to the state line, see a shower or two. Not the rule, simply the exception as most of us will remain rain-free. Expect hazy conditions and patchy fog towards the mountains.
A marginal risk for severe weather is possible as heat driven storms develop towards the eastern side of the state along the WV/VA state line. Strong winds, heavy rain, cloud to ground lightning will be our main risk. Not exactly a “plan your day around” event, just enough to watch for as these storms will be isolated in nature.
Thursday ushers in a cold front to break the heat and humidity. Showers and storms, some strong to severe, could be possible through the late morning and early afternoon. Temps are still hot in the upper 80s and low 90s. A few “cooler” spots due to extra clouds and sct. showers possible but once the sun returns, expect temps to rise and oppressive humidity. Rain is expected off and on all day long.
Friday we begin to get some relief from the heat and humidity thanks to a cold front pushing in. Highs in the 80s with mostly sunny skies. A lingering shower in the morning is possible but overall we clear out and cool down.
Saturday continues to cool down and humidity drops back to a more comfortable level. Highs still near average in the mid to upper 70s as high pressure builds in to keep us dry.
FATHER’S DAY, Sunday is another good day with sunshine and cooler temps. Highs in the mid 70s as we continue to enjoy drier conditions.
Monday we’ll start with sunshine but clouds will begin to filter back into the region. We start to warm back up to the 80s with rising humidity. A few shower possible for the overnight hours more as the exception than the rule.
Tuesday we’ll see a mix of sun and clouds but we stay dry. Temps and humidity both are on the rise as we push back to the 90 degree mark. A pop-up shower is unlikely but possible as we get back into the heat and humid airmass.
Wednesday looks to bring back scattered showers and a rumble of thunder to the region. We are running high in temps once again reaching the upper 80s and low 90s. Humidity will start to rise making it uncomfortable during the heat of the day.
Through the extended forecast we are working our way back to summer-like conditions with heat and humidity returning. Highs look to get back to the 90 degree mark. Remember to stay hydrated, avoid prolong outdoor time during the day, and keep a weather eye on the sky for pop-up storms.
Severe weather season is here, so make sure your thoughts are turning to preparedness! Refresh your emergency kit and grab that NOAA weather radio that’s still on your shopping list. We’ll continue to keep you up-to-date on the forecast so you can stay weather aware.
