COOLING AND TURNING LESS HUMID: The cold front is slow to clear the region, so Thursday is still a bit unsettled. There’s the chance for showers and perhaps a few thunderstorms, especially during the first half of the day. Temperatures start to lower, falling from some 90s Wednesday to 80s on Thursday. Cooler and less humid air tries to work in behind the front, but how quickly it moves in depends on the timing of the front. There’s some indication the front could stay stalled nearby into Friday, keeping shower and storm chances in place. For the time being, we are siding with the more optimistic forecast. It brings partly sunny skies and breezy conditions for Friday, in addition to very comfortable humidity levels. Afternoon highs are in the upper 70s to lower 80s.

 

 

WEEKEND OUTLOOK: For now, most of the weekend is cool, with low humidity levels and pleasant conditions. Saturday is partly cloudy, and conditions feel quite comfortable. Temperatures are a bit below average too, with readings in the middle 70s to near 80 degrees! We’re still watching some small indications for lingering showers, but for now, those chances look very small. We’ll watch the trends and tweak the forecast if necessary. Sunday brings plenty of sunshine, with near or slightly below seasonal temperatures for this time of year. Readings are in the middle 70s to lower 80s. Humidity levels stay very comfortable.

 

 

Stay Weather Smart with FOX43! Have a wonderful Monday!
