Muggy pattern lingers, few pop-up showers, storms

Forecast

A surface boundary will act as a focus for a few bands of rain, primarily across southern and eastern parts of the state, where there is the potential for locally heavy downpours in a humid environment. Clouds will break, with afternoon temperatures to low 80s.

An upper-level disturbance in the Great Lakes will close off and shift east, but close enough for isolated pop-up showers Friday. Weak high pressure will reduce rain chances heading into the weekend.

Skies will brighten a little, with some sunshine, but with muggy conditions and a few ripples aloft will lead to a few widely scattered afternoon and evening storms over the weekend, though most of the time will be dry without any significant weather systems around.

A high-pressure ridge will expand early next week, limiting the chances for isolated storms, while maintaining a seasonably warm and sticky pattern. A cold front will approach from the northwest but likely stall over the Lower Great Lakes until at least midweek.
