After a couple showers/t'showers this evening, clearing skies will be followed by patchy fog tonight into tomorrow morning.
Conditions look a bit more favorable for a few spotty storms along a weakening cold front that will "wash out" over our area tomorrow evening. There is a narrow window for these to fire, then they should collapse pretty quickly.
Friday-Saturday still look warm to very warm & humid. With partly cloudy skies, highs should run 83-86 Friday & 85-90 Saturday.
Some scattered storms are possible Sunday-Monday. Storm coverage should peak Monday evening-night. A few showers/storms may occur Tuesday as the actual cold front completely clears the area.
After very warm, muggy weather Sunday-Monday, Tuesday will turn cooler. Wednesday will be cooler & less humid with highs in the 70s to around 80 with lows in the 50s.
After upper 70s to lower 80s late next week, we should heat up & turn humid the week after. A few days of 90-95 are possible as a chunk of the hot upper ridge in the West moves eastward. Heat indices 100-107 are possible.
Some storms are possible during this time, occurring as clusters on the periphery of this heat in a bit of a "Ring of Fire" pattern.
Upper level winds:
After storms & a brief cool-down, heat surge should occur in late August with 90s, followed by a cool-down in early September.
Notice how the big, hot ridging builds, then hear comes a strong trough that will end likely the last heat wave of the year. With that big trough, storminess is likely.
Some ridging does return in the early part of September. It will propel temperatures to summery levels for a bit, but not the levels expected in late August to nearing Labor Day.
Overall, when you take all of the temperatures August 1-September 17, they average above normal some & rainfall below normal (75-85% of normal).
