Wednesday, June 12 Morning Forecast Discussion

By  | 

Happy Wednesday! It’s one of the coolest mornings we’ve seen in a while as temperatures have fallen mainly into the upper-50s and low-60s. Thicker high clouds will dominate our Wednesday, preventing high temperatures from reaching their full potential. The high today will be around 83 degrees, which is a degree warmer than yesterday’s high temperature. A weak cold front will push through the area tonight, and although a light shower can’t entirely be ruled out as it moves through, chances are too low to warrant mentioning in the official forecast. One things for sure is that this frontal passage will bring in a reinforcing shot of cool, dry air.

We’ll see plenty of sunshine on Thursday with highs in the mid-80s. An area of high pressure will slide over our area Thursday night into Friday, and this will mean clear skies and calm winds overnight. Those are the conditions needed for optimal cooling overnight and so Friday morning will be a bit on the chilly side with lows in the mid-to-upper-50s. The aforementioned area of high pressure will slide to our east on Friday and bring back southerly flow to our area. The humidity won’t be too bad on Friday, but afternoon highs will be noticeably warmer as we look to climb into the upper-80s.

The humidity factor will be in full force by Saturday as highs climb into the low-90s. There will be a chance of pop-up shower or storm Saturday afternoon, but it’s looking increasingly possible that any showers and storms will stay to our south. In other words, I may have to consider taking off rain chances for Saturday in future forecasts. Sunday will be the warmest day of the next 7, with highs in the mid-90s. There will be a chance of a pop-up shower or storm through Tuesday, but none of these days are going to be wash-outs. Morning lows will be back in the 70s by Sunday morning, and highs will be in the low-90s Monday and Tuesday.
