Weekend forecast: Hot and humid, with more scattered storms

/ July 22, 2022 at 7:27 PM

Hot and humid conditions continue this weekend as temperatures head back to around 90° each afternoon. Mix in the humidity and it’ll feel closer to 105° on Saturday and 102° on Sunday. Scattered showers and thunderstorms will remain in the forecast primarily in the afternoons, with the risk for locally heavy rain and isolated bouts of flooding to continue. A stronger storm or two with gusty winds is certainly on the table, as well. Lightning will make every thunderstorm dangerous, so remember to head indoors if you’re hearing thunder. Overall, with high pressure beginning to reassert itself, we should see a little less coverage of showers and storms overall. Storms will certainly not be an all-day thing — just something to plan around.

We turn progressively warmer and less rainy (finally!) next week as high pressure continues to build in at the surface and aloft. Mid-90s will be common by Wednesday, with isolated to scattered storms along and ahead of the seabreeze possible each afternoon. But that’s next week; no reason to prematurely induce Sunday Scaries. Enjoy the weekend!
