Pesky clouds kept us cool, could happen again tomorrow

Persistent cloud cover kept our temperatures down today, and this evening included scattered showers and a few storms moving through, too. These contained lightning and a few further southwest produced weak funnel clouds. In this environment, it’s unlikely any reach the ground and they don’t pose much of a threat.

High temperatures ranged from the upper 60s to mid 70s, with the area in the 60s to near 70 being the spots stuck under the most clouds. Dew points were actually up in the mid 50s to lower 60s, so it might have felt a little muggy at times.

Showers and a few storms remain possible in the evening but will taper off overnight. Tomorrow will be a similar battle between clouds and sunshine as today. With any luck, we’ll see just enough clearing to warm into the mid 70s, though once again afternoon and evening showers are possible.

The best day of the week looks to be Wednesday as it has the lowest chance for rain. While an isolated shower still can’t be ruled out then, there’s a good chance Wednesday and most of Thursday stay dry. While a few scattered showers become possible Thursday night into Friday, the best chance for rain and thunderstorms arrives Friday into Saturday.

A few storms could become strong, too, but it’s too early to pinpoint location and level of threat. Stay with Stormtracker 18 this week as this forecast evolves.

With the weekend system, it’ll start to feel more like summer with highs back near 80 and some humidity to go along with the rain chances.
