Nice temps before some more sizzle

Good Wednesday, everybody. We have a weak cold front working across the state today, bringing a better brand of air and some scattered storms. This brand of air isn’t going to last very long, with steamy conditions blowing back in by the weekend.

Highs today are in the low and middle 80s with humidity decreasing from north to south. The slow movement of the front will keep a few showers and storms around, with the greatest concentration showing up across the southern half of the state:

Thursday looks like a very nice day with highs in the 80s and low humidity levels. That changes on Friday as highs reach the upper 80s to around 90 for many, with low 90s west. Humidity is also on the increase. That may fire up isolated storms here or there.

Saturday looks steamy with highs in the low 90s for many across the state, but with isolated  boomers blossoming. The threat for showers and thunderstorms will really increase late Sunday into early next week ahead of a big push of cooler air:

The air behind this front will knock the numbers way down for much of the country. It’s not just the operational models showing this, the Ensembles continue to be locked in. Here are the European Ensembles 5 day average:

The evolution of this pattern continues to be one toward a cooler than normal second half of summer for much of the region.

Have a wonderful Wednesday and take care.
