THURSDAY: The heat will still crank through the late parts of the work week – expect highs in the lower to middle 90s after starting in the 70s. Mostly to partly sunny skies will help the cause, though moisture will begin to flow back into the region, leading to few afternoon downpours. Any showers that do develop will fizzle after sunset – lows in the lower 70s.
FRIDAY AND THE WEEKEND: High pressure will continue to lose its grip over the region – this will lead to a few more downpours by Friday afternoon and evening. Expect highs to still manage the lower 90s to round out the work week. An approaching and stalling front to the north will bring more scattered downpours into the fold into the weekend. Highs both day amid a partly sunny sky with be in the upper 80s to around 90°.
NEXT WEEK: Our pattern turns more unsettled as the stalled front to the north begins to waver a little closer to the region; spreading the chances for showers and storms across the region. Expect partly sunny to variably cloudy sky with highs easing down through the upper 80s. The front will eventually move through the region by the end of the week, likely to bring more seasonable temperatures to round out the month.
