Showers ending, but more on the way


Showers are just about over for the night, although a spotty light shower can't be ruled out sometime between now and morning, Storm Center 7 Chief Meteorologist Jamie Simpson said.

"It appears we might keep enough of a light breeze to avoid and fog issues, but there will be a bit at times, more like haze on the ground than anything else simply due to the high humidity," Simpson said.

While a stray shower can't be ruled out to start the day Thursday, the best chance still appears to be late morning through mid-afternoon, he said. "Then I expect we'll dry out in time for the evening commute."

Temperatures will not drop much due to the high humidity. Lows tonight will be in the upper 60s and the mid-60s by Thursday morning.

On Thursday, there will be a few more isolated showers, and perhaps the rumble of thunder, but there also will be more sun. Temperatures should reach the upper 70s, perhaps 80 for the southern part of the region. Humidity will remain high for one last day. Temperatures will back back into the 60s again Thursday night, with a rain-free night possible.

On Friday, an early shower is possibly before 9 a.m. as a cold front moves through. Humidity will drop and clouds will clear for afternoon sunshine.

"It will be a bit breezy but wonderful with afternoon highs in the mid-70s," Simpson said. "Clear skies Friday evening will help bring about the coolest night in a while, in fact since May 24 as we'll drop into the low 40s."

On Saturday, Simpson says it will be "a nearly perfect day and one almost exactly like last Saturday ... sunny skies are expected all day long, humidity will be low and we warm to about 80 in the afternoon."

On Sunday, there will be a cold start in the upper 50s. Afternoon highs are in the low- to mid-80s, with humidity increasing in the afternoon. Clouds start to move in, with showers possible Sunday night.

On Monday, it will be partly sunny, warm and humid with a few showers and thunderstorms. The threat for severe weather looks low, Simpson said. Morning lows will be in the mid-60s, with highs in the mid-80s.
