End of the Pattern

Today was the hottest day for a while. Tonight, some isolated showers and storms linger. Tomorrow, we continue the pattern of scattered showers and thunderstorms, this time throughout the day. The temperatures will be a sign of what is to come this weekend which will be great with seasonably cool weather, and low humidity.

Forecast Discussion

A cold front is approaching, and the Bermuda high is piling up moisture ahead of it. This will lead to isolated storms tonight, and scattered storms tomorrow. This front will squeegee out the moisture, and move through in the evening on Thursday.

With the cold front having moved through, cooler and drier air will spread into the area, the driest air coming in Saturday. Seasonably cool temperatures will prevail. This weekend will be great for doing anything outdoors, with a dry high pressure keeping a lid on showers.

Another cold front moves through Monday, bringing widely scattered afternoon storms. These storms cannot be ruled out Tuesday.
