Tonight: We are mostly dry overnight with some clearing in the mix. Patchy fog will be possible by morning. Morning lows in the 70s.
Wednesday: Clouds with sun mixed in, which will help us warm into the upper 80s and even to around 90 degrees for some neighborhoods. Spotty rain will be possible during the first half of the day, but it’s not until late in the afternoon and evening when we will have the best chance for rain as storms move in from the north. These storms may produce downpours, lightning, gusty wind, and small hail.
Thursday: An upper-level low will close off and meander over the region through at least early Saturday, which will keep rain and clouds in the forecast. Passing showers and isolated storms are possible. It won’t be an all-day rain, but expect some rain at times. Highs will be in the 80s.
Friday: Showers and a few storms are likely at times. Total rain coverage looks to be around 60 to 70 percent, as of now. Otherwise, mostly cloudy with highs in the 80s.
Weekend: Rain will likely be around to start the weekend, but there are still some questions about whether or not we will have some drier air move into the area – the timing of the dry air will determine whether the game will be dry or not. For now, plan for some rain during tailgate time on Saturday with rain fading by sunset. Lower rain chances will return by Sunday and into early next week.
Next Week: A front may move into the area Monday and into Tuesday. This won’t bring us a cooldown, but it would bring a drop in humidity and low rain chances.
Tracking the Tropics: Danielle is a hurricane in the open Atlantic. Additionally, Earl will become a major hurricane later in the week. Danielle and Earl will not impact our area. There are two other areas being monitored by the National Hurricane Center.
