Today’s daily digit
A somewhat subjective rating of the day’s weather, on a scale of 0 to 10.
4/10: Not a scorcher, but 90 within reach and the humidity has an extra oomph, which could fuel scattered p.m. downpours.
- Today: Warm and very humid, scattered p.m. storms likely. Highs: Near 90.
- Tonight: Scattered showers and storms linger. Lows: Low-to-mid 70s.
- Tomorrow: Isolated to scattered showers and storms. Highs: Mid-80s.
Forecast in detail
The combination of high humidity and a stalling cold front are poised to give us a daily chance of showers and storms through the weekend, some of which could be slow-moving with very heavy rain. While we may add another 90-degree day today, the rest of the forecast period should be a bit cooler with highs mainly in the 80s.
Today (Wednesday): Partly sunny skies this morning see increasing clouds this afternoon with highs reaching the upper 80s to low 90s and light winds. The humidity is extra thick with dew points in the mid-70s. All that moisture in the air combined with an approaching cold front means scattered showers and storms are likely mid-afternoon into evening. Any storms that develop should be slow-moving (due to very light steering winds at the mid-levels of the atmosphere) with the potential for very heavy rain and isolated gusty winds. Confidence: Medium-High
Tonight: Scattered showers and storms remain likely into the evening, again with the potential for very heavy rain and isolated gusty winds, before diminishing overnight. The air remains very muggy with light winds and lows in the low-to-mid 70s under mostly cloudy skies. Confidence: Medium
Tomorrow (Thursday): Still very humid, but a bit cooler with partly to mostly cloudy skies, as highs head for the mid-80s. With the front having stalled nearby, isolated to scattered showers and storms are possible at just about any time through the day, and again these could be slow-moving with very heavy rain. Confidence: Medium
Tomorrow night: A few showers and a thundershower could linger into the evening. Otherwise we’re muggy and mostly cloudy with lows near 70 to the low 70s. Confidence: Medium
A look ahead
Not too hot Friday and this weekend with highs in the 80s, perhaps even the lower half of the 80s Saturday and Sunday, but remaining humid with partly sunny skies. The chance of scattered showers and storms also sticks around, especially during the afternoons into evenings. Saturday night lows dip to the upper 60s to low 70s. Confidence: Low-Medium
