After a soaking few days we are finally changing up the weather pattern. The upper level low that was parked off to our west has lifted back north. The stationary front that was around has been replaced by a cool front (which is ironically stalling out). High pressure is creeping a little closer to us.
However, the biggest thing in our favor is that the very deep layer of moisture has pushed offshore. So that will allow us to get some sunshine back (finally!). We had a little fog and low clouds in the region this morning, but the sun was peeking out more and more. We’ll have partly cloudy skies today. There will be a few showers and storms popping up this afternoon. It won’t be widespread like it has been lately. I only have a 30% chance for rain.
Tomorrow we’ll have a slightly higher chance for rain and storms in the afternoon (40%), but it will be far from a washout.
Skies will be partly cloudy for most of the day. Over the weekend we’ll have a mix of sun and clouds. Unfortunately, the rain chances will creep up a little more. I have a 50% chance for rain both days. this will be due to a couple more stalling fronts. Hopefully, we’ll be able to tweak that down before the weekend arrives, but we’ll I’m not too optimistic. Stay tuned!
As far as temperatures go… We are back to some hot and humid conditions for a while. Highs today will be in the upper 80s to near 90. The heat index will be in the mid-upper 90s. Tomorrow high temperatures will be in the low 90s. The heat index will be in the mid-upper 90s again, but extra clouds and the scattered showers should limit the heating beyond that. Highs will be in the upper 80s over the weekend. No extreme heat here, but there has been a lot of extreme heat out west. There have also been extreme heat waves in Japan and Europe.
