Warm and humid with a few showers possible today
A weak storm system is producing clouds and some shower chances in the area this afternoon. A few spotty showers and perhaps a rumble of thunder will be possible late in the afternoon and for the early evening hours. Even without much, if any, sunshine high temperatures will be in the low to mid-80s. The humidity we've been feeling in the past few days will be more noticeable as our southeast winds will be fairly light.
Warm sunshine and sparse shower chances this week
A bright, warm, and humid weather pattern will continue to dominate the region's weather for the tail end of the week, but small disturbances aloft may trigger isolated showers and thunderstorms during the afternoon hours over the next couple of days. Severe weather won't be a concern in this pattern, just sparse showers with a few rumbles of thunder. A brief downpour of rain can't be ruled out, though, as there will be plenty of rich humidity around to fuel those storms. High temperatures will be in the upper 80s to around 90 degrees with a generally light south breeze.
A warm and slightly unsettled holiday weekend
We're going to enjoy a fair amount of sunshine through Independence Day, but there will still be a chance for a couple of isolated afternoon thunderstorms in the area. Again, we're not expecting widespread shower activity or even severe weather, but a few downpours of heavy rainfall will be possible. Sunday offers a better chance for scattered storms in the area during the afternoon with temperatures in the upper 80s.
A few thunderstorms will be possible Monday with slightly better chances for more widespread thunderstorms next Tuesday and Wednesday. Heat and humidity will remain the rule around those rain chances with high temperatures in the upper 80s.
