The cold front is sliding through and will bring us an absolutely gorgeous Friday! Until then, showers will greet you this Thursday morning with rather warm and muggy conditions. Shower chances will taper off after lunch (a few lingering thundershowers over SW portions of the region) and skies will gradually clear from NW to SE. Temperatures will be noticeably cooler today with highs in the low 80s. The drier air will filter in tonight. Tomorrow will be fantastic with sunshine, comfortable humidity, and slightly below average temperatures.
The reprieve from the humidity will be short-lived. Heat and humidity will build for the weekend with highs back into the lower 90s both Saturday and Sunday. A strong cold front will drop down from the Great Lakes Sunday and will trigger afternoon and evening showers and thunderstorms. A few will linger into Monday, but behind the front, another delightful push of low humidity and below average temperatures. Have a great day!
