WEDNESDAY: Expect the start of the day to be like each morning this week; clouds will likely be in place, breaking for a few peeks of sun through the early afternoon. A boundary will approach the region, bringing a better chance of scattered showers and storms by the afternoon hours. Ahead of the rain chances, highs will top out in the upper 70s and lower 80s amid a breezy south wind. Periodic rain and storms will continue through the overnight hours as we remain warm – in the 60s.
THURSDAY: The boundary that will kick off the storms late Wednesday will quickly retreat northward through Thursday. We’ll continue to mention the possibility of a few scattered showers and storms through the day. Highs will top out in the upper 70s and lower 80s once again.
INTO THE WEEKEND AND BEYOND: The upper ridge over the Atlantic will continue to pump in warm, humid air into the region – keeping temperatures in the lower 80s Friday and Saturday with off and on shower chances. The front our north will continue to act as a trigger to fire the storms off. A few of the storms on Saturday into early Sunday could be strong. We’ll see highs fall off slightly by early next week, but still well above normal for this time of the year; in the lower 70s Sunday and Monday, eventually 60s return for highs by Tuesday.
