Warm and muggy this weekend with a decent scattering of rain and storms, especially in the afternoon
There has been no change in the large-scale features influencing our weather pattern. High pressure anchored over the southeast Atlantic Ocean will keep a steady stream of Gulf moisture pumping in, so don’t expect a change in the humidity levels anytime soon. Daytime heating combined with subtle disturbances in the upper air flow will lead to a decent covering of showers and storms both Saturday and Sunday afternoon.
Storms may produce heavy rain and gusty wind. Rain amounts in areas that receive locally heavy downpours may exceed two inches, but there will be many spots that do not see anything close to that amount. Slightly drier air may try and work in toward the middle of the week, potentially bringing a brief period of lower rain chances.
