Triple H weather again today (Hazy, Hot, and Humid). Trying to get creative in saying the same thing, but DON"T tune out here! There are changes by next week! Temperatures will be taking it a notch down, but a bit to get through before then. First of all, in addition to temperatures staying about 10 above average in the upper 80s today, isolated thunderstorms are possible, but mainly in the mountains. I have reduced rain chances to about 20 percent for the metro and still only about 30 percent chance for areas of elevation. That seemingly immobile high off the Atlantic coast remains in place for another few days but extends far enough west that our thunderstorm chances are quite low on Saturday as well. In fact, a good bet that the metro stays dry and thunderstorm chances hold at 20 percent. It all starts to change as a stronger cold front slowly moves in on Sunday. More widespread showers and thunderstorms are likely. Highs will cool only slightly in the mid 80s. By Monday, the front holds just to our south allowing cool temperatures in the upper 60 with a chance of rain or drizzle. Drier air will be welcome in the middle of the week.
