- Possible stray showers this evening; most stay dry
- Stay warm all weekend
- The cold front brings changes for the next week
Welcome to the weekend! Overnight lows will be warm in the 60s and lows in the 70s with some cloud present. Saturday will remain calm and warm with a few showers/thunderstorms possible in the afternoon-evening. Chances of showers and storms are not widespread, so most will remain rainless. Saturday’s highs will again remain in the 80s, but we will be considered hot for Sunday as highs move back into the 90s for some hometowns. Also on Sunday we increase our chance of precipitation as a cold front heads east. This could lead to showers and thunderstorms developing in the late afternoon, but widespread showers are likely on Monday.
Looks like Monday will start wet with scattered showers and thunderstorms. Temperatures will be much cooler with highs in the 70s and lows in the 80s, even in the middle of the work week. The high will dry us out again by Tuesday with mostly sunny skies. We will also continue to get hotter later in the week. So by Thursday, it’s possible the 90s will make a comeback once again to close out June.
At present, our region will not experience any impact from tropical systems. The Atlantic is considered calm now, but it is possible that a new tropical system will form within the next 5 days. The National Hurricane Center has highlighted a system that may be forming off the coast of Africa. If it strengthens, it would be considered unusual for this time of year due to its distance to the south.
