Many of us consider back-to-school to be the end of summer, but there’s plenty of heat and humidity to last us through the middle of next week. Temperatures will be in the upper 80s this evening with a stray storm or two as we approach sunset. There still is a chance for a passing storm early tonight or a shower overnight, but we do not anticipate widespread storm activity.
An approaching cold front will produce another batch of hit-or-miss storms early Friday afternoon, mainly between 1pm to 5pm with clearing skies for the remainder of Friday evening.
The weekend features more heat and humidity with afternoon highs in the upper 80s. We expect dry conditions for the weekend and Monday. Anyone planning to view the eclipse will experience hazy skies and temperatures in the upper 80s. We peak at 90 degrees next Tuesday with pop up storms Tuesday evening and another chance for storms Wednesday afternoon from a passing cold front. This front will provide a nice break in the heat and humidity late next week.
