Reported by: Chief Meteorologist Joe Murgo
Summertime mugginess has moved back into the region, but as we learned today, this humid air can fuel scattered downpours with showers and thunderstorms. After a leftover shower in spots this evening, later tonight will be partly cloudy sky with areas of fog, especially in places that received some rainfall. Lows will be mostly in the 60s, only dropping into the 50s in a few of the cooler spots, especially north of I-80. The front that has been stalled to our south since the weekend is making a move back northward. This will help to bring more numerous showers and thunderstorms Wednesday and Thursday. While not everyplace will get rainfall, and not all spots will be hit at once, there will be heavier downpours. Some of these downpours could cause flooding in areas of poor drainage. There will be more clouds than sunshine Wednesday, but temperatures will still try to reach near 80 as long as there are some breaks of sun. The wind flow will try to turn a little more westerly behind this front Thursday into Friday which will help to push temperatures into the lower to middle 80s each day despite a scattering of showers and thunderstorms. The actual high temperature in each location still will be dependent on the timing and amount of rainfall at that spot. Any of those showers and thunderstorms will also bring the potential for heavier downpours. Slightly drier air will try to press in for the upcoming weekend. While we won't say the chance for precipitation will be zero, any activity should be limited. High temperatures will be near 80 each day and the nights will be a little less humid with some places dropping into the 50s, especially Sunday night. Monday and Tuesday will be warm and humid with a mix of clouds and sunshine. There will be a threat for a pop up shower or thunderstorm each day, but many places will be rain free.
