Timing will be everything as we anticipate a weakening cluster of t-storms will be moving south overnight. This cluster of storms will produce only isolated thundershowers across the local area but will bring an increase in cloud coverage which could limit sky visibility.

The upcoming work/school week will be highlighted by building high pressure. The high will stay weak Monday and Tuesday allowing for a few afternoon t-showers. Rain coverage won’t be widespread so most stay dry. The high will build stronger into mid-week keeping the weather dry Wednesday through Friday. Temperatures will be hot reaching the low 90°s each afternoon. Humidity levels will increase through the week causing feels like temperatures to reach the upper 90°s by the end of the week.


By the weekend, an approaching storm system will flatten the ridge. This storm system will produce scattered to numerous showers and thunderstorms Saturday afternoon and night. Showers and a few storms will linger into Sunday. The weather pattern into next week will take an almost summertime look. Expect hot and humid days with a few pop-up afternoon thundershowers.
