Update from Jeff Haniewich
We began our Friday dry with some sunshine, however, as the day went on, more clouds rolled in and showers/storms formed as a cold front moved closer to the region. That frontal boundary will cross our neck of the woods late this afternoon and this evening, and behind it high pressure will move in, allowing for more sun this weekend!
Tonight: Any t-showers end pretty early (by mid-evening) with skies clearing nicely…lows in the mid-to-upper 60s.
Saturday: Mostly sunny and still hot, but not quite as humid…highs in the lower 90s.
We will continue to see more sun than clouds on Sunday (maybe a little more cloud cover than Saturday, but still very our fair share of sun!) with highs around 90. So, all weekend long we look dry.
Monday (Eclipse Day) will see a mix of sun and clouds with a few late-day t-showers possible. Hopefully the clouds we see won’t obstruct the viewing too much…at this time I don’t think they will. It will remain very warm with highs in the upper 80s. The eclipse starts a little after 1:00p, reaching its peak around 2:40p (90%), with the eclipse ending around 4:00p. For everything eclipse related, we have you covered…go to wsls.com/eclipse. Happy viewing!
Tuesday will be partly sunny with isolated PM t-showers still possible…nothing big, nothing widespread. It will be pretty hot with highs near 90. A cold front will push through the area on Wednesday, increasing our chance for scattered showers and storms. Temperatures will drop into the middle 80s. Behind that front, high pressure will build in, allowing dry weather on Thursday and next Friday. In addition, we will cool down and turn less humid with highs in the upper 70s and lower 80s. Both days right now look partly to mostly sunny.
