Added humidity today reminds you it is still August as cooler air approaches for the weekend.

Today: AM Sunshine, Aft’n. Clouds, Risk Strong PM Storms

Highs: 90°-95° | Wind: SW 6-12 mph

Overnight: Hefty Showers & Storms Likely

Lows: 60°-70° | Wind: SW 8-15 mph

Tomorrow: Mainly Morning Rain, Cooler, Peeks of PM Sun

Highs: 79°-84° | Wind: NW 5-10 mph

While it will start pretty sunny this morning, clouds will increase throughout the afternoon ahead of a cold front. Temperatures will be similar to those of yesterday with highs in the low to mid 90s but it will feel more uncomfortable with the increased humidity. As the front approaches, we expect showers and storms to arrive during the along the I-81 corridor in the afternoon and push into the metro by the evening. It appears there could be lingering morning showers Saturday before the front clears the area and drier air settles in from the north. This will set the stage for delightful cooler weather this weekend with highs in the low-mid 80s. If all hold together Sunday will feature partly sunny skies and only a slight shot for a shower, but we will be watching a potential coastal low that could alter the Sunday outlook. Have a great weekend!
