The heat from the end of the weekend continues as we start off the workweek. Temperatures will soar into the mid and upper 90s this afternoon. The humidity at the surface will mix out with some drier air in the mid-levels of the atmosphere. This will lead to the oppressive humidity taking a bit of a break, but it’ll still be a sweltering afternoon. The drier air in the mid-levels will suppress almost all rain development, so we won’t rule out a very, very isolated shower, but most of us stay dry.
Much of the same goes for Tuesday as hot temperatures persist and rain chances look pretty scant. We will see a slight uptick in our shower and storm coverage, but only to about 20%. Once again, the hottest spots will see temperatures in the mid to upper 90s.
By Wednesday a break in the heat arrives in the form of a cold front. This front will bring a really good chance for showers and storms around the region, and in turn, temperatures won’t be so hot. Showers and storms linger in the forecast for Thursday, but a slight drying trend begins by Friday with very low rain chances and highs near 90.
