FORECAST DISCUSSION:

Good Thursday Night,

Later tonight, the disturbance will shift east, and take the energy with it, ending rain and storms for the night before midnight. We will see our temps drift back into the middle 60s by midnight tonight, and drop to around 60 by daybreak on Friday with a mix of clouds.

I think given all the rainfall that we saw today, and even this evening, along with light winds, and near 100% humidity, patchy dense fog will be possible late tonight into the early morning hours during the morning. I think this could slow things down for the morning commute as well.

Friday expect mixed clouds turning partly cloudy during the day. Later in the day on Friday clouds will increase again with a bit of disturbed weather. This may be enough along with heating to give us one or two pop-ups late on Friday with highs in the lower 80s.

Friday night we will clear out as high pressure builds in. It is going to make for an ideal weekend. Highs on Saturday will be in the upper 80s with plenty of sunshine. We will see plenty of sunshine again on Sunday with highs near 90.

I expect numbers to be a degree or two higher on Monday in the lower 90s with humidity increasing, and a few pop-up thunderstorms forming late day. That will be the case most of next work week, as we will be absent of any major weather systems, instead the high will retreat, and pump in some big time humidity.

This will lead to slightly cooler, but still very warm temps in the upper 80s through the mid-week, but dewpoints approaching the gross range, in the upper 60s to lower 70s. This will lead to heat index values into the lower to middle 90s potentially next week. Also, this will give us increased chances of storms each afternoon.

These storms will subside during the evening, and re-fire the next afternoon. Highs will be in the upper 80s Tuesday through Thursday with sunshine early each day.
