A warm and muggy rest of the weekend, but much cooler and drier air is on the horizon.

Partly cloudy
Lows: 65-72°
Wind: S 5 mph
Hot & muggy; 30% chance PM t'storms
Highs: Around 90 degrees
Wind: SW 5-15 mph
Hot & muggy; 60% chance PM storms, some severe
Highs: Low to mid 90s
Wind: SW 5-15 mph

A typical July weekend with highs in the upper 80s to low 90s and high humidity.    Overnight lows will be mild, only falling into the upper 60s to low 70s.  Some areas of patchy fog are possible, too.  Tomorrow brings similar weather conditions to today, but storm chances will be slightly higher, as a cold front gets a bit closer.

You've probably heard about the impending cold front that will bring a huge relief from the heat humidity by midweek.  Read more in our latest blog.  Ahead of the front, hot and humid air will fuel the fire for widespread strong, to possibly, severe storms both Monday and Tuesday.  Both of those days, you'll want to remain weather-aware and stay updated with the local forecast.  Damaging wind gusts and large hail will be likely within the storms.  Behind the front Wednesday, high temperatures will fall to around 80 degrees (about 10 degrees below average) with very low, comfortable humidity.  We'll enjoy the same weather pattern to round out the work week.  As always, stay up to date with the StormWatch7 weather team.  We have you covered.
