Good Thursday, folks. The past week has been about as cool as you’re ever going to find for this time of year. The recent run of fall weather is about to be replaced by typical summertime air, leading to an increase in storm chances through the Fourth of July weekend.
Highs Thursday will generally be in the middle 80s in many areas, but the humidity will really ramp up. Watch for a scattered shower or storm during the afternoon and evening:
Those storms will increase a little more Friday, with highs again in the middle and upper 80s.
A cold front drops in from the northwest on Saturday, with showers and storms becoming much more common. Some of the storms might be a little on the strong side:
This front then slows down and becomes stationary across our region. That will probably mean additional rounds of showers and storms through the Fourth of July. No, that does not mean constant rain, but the chance is there for some storms to interrupt those outdoor activities on any given day.
Heavy rainfall is a real potential with a setup like that.
Have a great Thursday and take care.
