High pressure over the Midwest will promote pleasant conditions this evening with some clouds, and great visibility for community fireworks.
Highs topped out near 80 degrees Saturday–several degrees cooler than normal and an ideal start to the holiday weekend.
Temperatures will not be as cool tonight compared to early morning readings in the 50s, as northerly winds gradually turn more westerly, with lows falling into the mid-60s under fair skies.
Sunday will be turn much more humid by late afternoon under partly cloudy skies. Added moisture could lead to a few pop-up storms toward evening, a few with gusty winds, that will dissipate quickly around sunset. Highs will reach the upper 80s, so plan on a typical summer day.
Very warm air and humid conditions return for the first half of next week, with scattered storms possible in the afternoon and evening, then becoming more numerous midweek when a cold front arrives.
Tropical Storm Elsa
Tropical Storm Elsa (70 mph) is passing south Hispaniola and will be steered toward Cuba and eventually Florida or the eastern Gulf of Mexico early next week, before turning up the Eastern Seaboard. Last year, we did not see our fifth named storm in the Atlantic until July 6.
