As the jet stream begins to rise north of us over the next couple days, rain chances remain nil, and temperatures will be warming up. Fortunately, (or unfortunately if you’re looking for rain) there is enough dry air around so that while temperatures will be warming the next several days, the nights will still be comfortable. It won’t be until the weekend that our winds turn more southerly, which will allow much more humid air to be sent northward over us. Until that humidity arrives, we will remain bone dry, with temperatures warming into the 90s by Thursday and Friday. We could even approach the record high of 94 on Friday.
With moisture returning to our area this weekend, we think our chances for showers and thunderstorms will increase. We’ll be watching a trough of disturbed weather, which will hang out across the Deep South of the US through much of this week, lift northeastward over us. We’ll see temperatures flirting with 90, and an increase in humidity for the weekend. There will be some pop up thunderstorms around for the weekend and it still looks like the best chance will come on Sunday.
