Lows this morning ran 53-63.
Highs today reached 82-87 with dew points in the 62-68 range to make for a bit of stickiness, but it wasn't terrible.
A nice night is ahead with mostly clear skies, an east breeze & lows 57-64. We should begin to turn partly cloudy early tomorrow morning & be partly cloudy during the day (though thicker clouds south).
Highs should reach 84-90, but the humidity will be held in check with generally easterly winds.
Skies look mostly cloudy Friday morning (lows 60s to 70), followed by a mix of clouds/sun with a few isolated showers/storms & highs 84-90 with heat indices peaking at 89-95.
As for Saturday, it looks like a mix of clouds/sun with very warm to hot, humid conditions with highs 86-91 & heat indices 90-98.
Some scattered storms are possible (35% coverage) with outflow boundary coming in from the northwest & with weak surface convergence boundary over our area. Any risk of a severe storm would be isolated.
On Sunday, broken line of storms are possible in the afternoon-evening as surface cold front & upper trough swing through.
There is the risk of an isolated severe storm or two.
Certainly, not everyone will get a good rain out of this round, unlike earlier this week.
Next week features 4 days of below normal temperatures with refreshingly cool nights & mostly to partly cloudy days. I kept 30% coverage of showers/t'showers in the area for Monday afternoon as a secondary surface cold front & shortwave comes in & re-enforces cooler, less humid air.
Temperature anomaly map below (via GFS model) from Pivotal Weather:
Heat & high humidity return & dominate much of late August to early September with a couple of streaks of 90s & heat indices +100 possible:
Rainfall continue to trend below normal overall for late August to early September:
We will watch for the potential of a couple "Ridge Riders" or complexes of storms on the periphery of the upper ridge of intense heat.
We will also will watch the increasingly-active tropics.
Mid-September does show a spurt of below normal temperatures for that time.
