It has been another beautiful summer day with relatively low humidity and temperatures below normal. A few clouds have developed this afternoon and as I type this no rain is falling from any of the clouds. We will remain dry tonight with a mostly clear. Here is the visible satellite image from this afternoon.

Dry weather will continue through part of the weekend. There is a very small chance of a stray shower/storm during the afternoon Thursday. High temperatures will reach the mid 80s starting Friday and will remain there through Tuesday. The humidity will increase through the end of the weekend and remain pretty high through the first half of next week with dewpoints in the upper 60s.

 

The first half of next week might be setting up with a pattern of overnight storms ending in the morning. Heavy downpours are possible with lots of moisture in the air (dewpoints upper 60s). The maps below show an upper air pattern forecast to become zonal early next week. At this time, a front will be elongated generally east/west. Along the front will be little disturbances able to trigger showers/storms.
