Remember yesterday? Nice, warm summer day? Well today is a repeat, just a tad warmer. We remain north of the front that separates very humid air from more tolerable humidity levels. So, while temperatures will reach the upper 80s today, dewpoints will be mainly in the upper 50s to near 60.
The higher-dewpoint air will begin seeping north Thursday and the end of the week will be muggy. Notice the upward trend on the short-term models over the next few days. Dewpoints:
Thursday looks rain-free for most of the day with only a small chance for a late-day shower.
Better chance to see some needed raindrops on Friday. The GFS (shown) is not particularly wet but some of the other modeling has a more active day….and I lean toward that idea.
Once again we have some model arguments but I am confident that neither day is any kind of washout. Just have to allow for spotty shower and thunderstorm activity with a front nearby and some cool air aloft (creating instability). My suspicion is that Saturday is somewhat more active than Sunday.
A warm to hot period seems likely during the middle of next week.
