Very humid with patchy fog to start the day. We will see some sunshine and temperatures will warm to near 90. Heat index values will climb into the upper 90s. A frontal system that is stalled right over us, will wash out today. A cold front will approach from the west this afternoon bringing us the chance for some showers and storms. Some of the storms could be on the strong-to-severe side, producing damaging winds and heavy downpours. The front will weaken as it approaches. We also won’t see much of a temperature change going into Saturday.

That stubborn front will stick around for the weekend, meaning we will have a good chance for showers and thunderstorms both Saturday and Sunday. Neither day will be a washout, but we do expect periods of storms both days. We have a 40% chance on Saturday and a 50% chance on Sunday.

And it looks like we will end July and start August on a stormy note with a 40-50% chance for showers and storms on Monday and Tuesday and a 30% chance on Wednesday and Thursday.
