I’m really starting to sound like a broken record, but such is the weather pattern we are stuck in! We get off to a dry, yet muggy start, but late-day showers and storms are once again in the cards and some could contain heavy rains like yesterday. However, this will not happen before we see high temperatures that push to near 90º! Friday is a repeat of today, although it may not be as warm due to some additional cloud cover. By the weekend, an easterly flow will bring in abundant clouds and keep the temperatures cooler. This setup - even in August - is no exception. A few showers may carry into Saturday, but shouldn’t be heavy. Sun should slowly start to appear later in the weekend as high pressure will rebuild into the region and stabilize the weather. Have a great day!
