It was another June day that, while nice, didn’t feel quite like we’re used to in summer. Humidity continues to be very low and temperatures are staying below average with highs in the 70s. We saw clouds today, but no rain. This trend will begin to change with increasing chances for showers each of the next few days.
Expect just slight chances for rain tomorrow afternoon and evening, and a chance for showers and thunderstorms returning late Friday as a warm front moves through. This warm front will bring the humidity back, with dew points expected to rise up to the mid to upper 60s.
Temperatures will likely remain below 80, however, due to the increased cloud cover and rain chances through the weekend.
If your lawn is getting long, or if you have other outdoor chores to get done, the best time for outside work will be now through Friday afternoon. Earlier is best. Showers and thunderstorms become likely Friday night and will last into Sunday.
Strong to severe storms are possible late Friday through Saturday evening, too, with heavy rain, straight line wind gusts, hail, and even a tornado can’t be ruled out. It’s still early in this system’s development, so stay with Stormtracker 18 as more details become available.
Next week will see more rain chances early followed by warm and humid, more summer-like air.
