Rest of the work week: Rain-free through Thursday, then turning unsettled

/ April 6, 2021 at 8:51 PM

We continue our weather winning streak on Wednesday as temperatures rise into the mid-80s once again under mostly sunny skies. Humidity will remain on the low side as one more day of dry air persists. As we get into Thursday, though, high pressure will be headed offshore, and the resulting moisture return will allow for cloud cover to thicken back up and humidity to increase a little bit more. By Friday, we’ll have enough moisture in place ahead of a stalling cold front to allow for some showers and thunderstorms in the afternoon, with scattered storms remaining in the forecast through the weekend (depending on the progress of the front).

Poor air quality possible tomorrow

If you’re out and about tomorrow and suffer from asthma or other lung conditions, keep an eye on the air quality. Ozone is forecast to get close to levels that may be unhealthy for sensitive groups. While there is no official air quality alert in effect, it can’t hurt to be careful.
