Scattered storms more numerous this weekend

Weather

Saturday started out damp, muggy and warm, and it stay that way! A few scattered, locally-heavy storms develop here and there today, and the clouds keep it a little ‘less hot:’ highs in the lower 80s and a southwest breeze up to 15 miles per hour.

Rain and storms become more widespread on Sunday. A cloudy sky means below-average temperatures, but that thick, tropical humidity goes nowhere. Expect more of the same muggy weather ahead of a weak cool front on both Sunday and Monday; that also means some locally-heavy, unevenly-scattered rainfall at times.

Weak front passes, spotty storms continue next week

Cool fronts this time of year don’t usually bring a lot of heat relief. The one hanging around this weekend and early next week is the ‘usual’ mid-July cold front: next to no real change whatsoever in the way it feels outside.

Enough drier air above the surface should reduce the number of daily showers and storms, but there’s nothing to completely shut down the chance of at least a few isolated downpours through the middle of the upcoming week. Fewer storms toward midweek means hotter weather: an a heat index back in the middle/upper 90s by Wednesday and Thursday.
