Showers Tonight, Clearing Friday

Weather

Tonight we’re watching for a few isolated strong storms though the rain of today has helped keep that threat low. General thunderstorms and showers will continue into the evening hours tonight into the overnight. We’ll see a lull in the showers pre-dawn. Lows dipping back to the upper 50s and low 60s.

Friday we could see a few spotty showers throughout the day but for the most part, the rain will end before the morning hours. Clouds will still be passing through but as the day goes on we should see skies begin to exit as high pressure begins to regain control. Highs will be in the upper 70s and low 80s.

Saturday, sunny skies and high pressure are in control to kick off the weekend. This will lead to a pleasant and hot day for many as highs return to the 80s for almost everyone. Sunscreen and plenty of water will be needed for those heading outside!

Sunday, we have a repeat of Saturdays weather. We’re back in the 80s for everyone, with plenty more sunshine spreading across the area.

Monday, hot weather stays with us but now we also see the return of humid weather too. Dew points will rise back to the upper 60s and low 70s making the humidity noticeable and drive up our risk of some afternoon thunderstorms.

Tuesday follows Monday as another hot and humid day. Highs will be in the mid-80s for most with some valleys and especially the coal fields getting up near the 90s. A few isolated storms and showers by the afternoon will help to cool a select few off.

Wednesday, we’re still in the same weather pattern. For those who want summer, you’re certainly getting a good taste of it now. Highs remain in the mid 80s with dew points still in the upper 60s and low 70s. A thunderstorm or two should make an appearance through this afternoon as well.

Thursday looks to keep the heat and humidity with afternoon highs in the upper 80s with overnight lows getting warm as well in the upper 60s. The risk of an afternoon shower or rumble of thunder is possible. With just a few weeks left before the official start of summer it appears we’re getting a preview of things to come.

In the extended forecast, hot weather isn’t going anywhere as highs are forecast to remain in the 80s. The humidity looks to stick with us as well. Remember to stay hydrated and keep the sunscreen close as the summer feel is making its way back.
