Tuesday started humid with patchy fog and some cloud cover after a few light showers passed in the very early morning hours. We picked up 0.06” of rain on top of last night’s 0.04” to bring us up to 1.81” on the month, which is 0.63” behind the normal for June.
The mugginess will slowly improve through Tuesday and temperatures climb into the mid 70’s. High pressure is slowly taking over the region which will lead to some slight clearing.
Mostly to partly cloudy with a few pop-up sprinkles will be possible in the afternoon, but any rain development will be very short-lived. Dew points will feel more comfortable for a couple days before climbing right back into the uncomfortable zone by the end of the week.
We’ll likely add to our monthly total towards the end of the week, as a large system digs into the Midwest. Thursday night brings the first shot at some thunderstorms. The approaching system will fire up more Friday, but the strongest of storms looks to filter in on Saturday. Of course, we’re still too far out to get a firm grasp on timing and impacts, but do note that there may be some stronger development into the weekend.
Friday kicks off the start of astronomical summer and temperatures will definitely reflect that, but so will the humidity. Keep an eye on the forecast this week for those chances at severe weather.
