Highs today ran in the 70s to 80.

A large chunk of the storms will stay to our northwest of our area right into Friday night, though I cannot rule out a isolated shower or storm Friday or Friday night.  This will occur as the warm front continues to lift northward.

The humidity will surge from dew points in the 50s in the morning to mid 60s by midday to lower 70s by evening.

Lows tomorrow night will only drop to around 69.

Some storms are possible late Friday night-Saturday morning, followed by a break of partly cloudy skies.  A few more are possible late Saturday afternoon & evening to even the early overnight.

Highs will run in the 80s with muggy conditions.

A few storms are possible Sunday with 30% coverage with partly cloudy skies & upper 80s to 90.  Heat indices will run in the 90s to 100s.  Morning lows will tend to run 70-73.

Only an isolated storm or two is possible Labor Day with breezy conditions & highs around 90 & heat indices at/+100.  Skies look partly cloudy.

A few storms are possible next Friday as a cold front passes, but all of the stronger winds aloft & cooler temperatures aloft for decent storms look well north of the area.  So, this will keep coverage down to 35%. .

Some cooler, less humid weather will follow, but it will not turn excessively cooler & less humid.  Looks like a couple days of highs in the 80-85 range with lows 55-60.

Despite some temperature oscillations, temperatures average above normal right past the mid point of the month.  Rainfall will tend a bit below normal.  Notice the band of flooding rain New Mexico to Kansas to Wisconsin & potential of above normal rainfall ont he Gulf Coast as there is a sign of more active Atlantic/Caribbean for tropical development in September.

Shot of much cooler air should arrive in later September.

How about some late September sub-freezing lows in the Plains & 30s to Iowa?
