Today: After record-setting heat Wednesday and Thursday, it will not be as hot or humid going forward. Don’t get me wrong, it’ll still be warm today and tomorrow with highs in the low to upper 80s from north to south. However, a cold front moves through today, shifting winds from south to west at 5 to 15 mph, ushering in lower dew points that drop to the 50s today and 40s by Sunday.
A line of decaying showers is approaching the area this morning and should continue to weaken. Most of today is partly cloudy but as the cold front interacts with the warm air mass in the peak heating of the afternoon, we will likely see some more storms pop up, some of which could be strong to severe with damaging winds/large hail the main threats. This will mainly be for areas east of I-380 and south of I-80 from about 5 PM to 10 PM.
Tonight: Any rain/storms end this evening with skies becoming mostly clear. Winds are light and variable as lows fall to the mid 50s to low 60s.
Saturday: This should be a beautiful day with mostly sunny skies and a southwest wind at 5 to 15 mph bringing highs to the low and mid 80s. Again, humidity will be much lower.
Sunday: A secondary cold front brings a chance for scattered showers/storms Saturday night into Sunday with partly sunny skies. It also lowers highs to the low 70s Sunday. Winds come in from the west at 5 to 15 mph.
Next Week: It starts off dry Monday with mostly sunny skies, a breezy northwest wind, and highs in the low to mid 70s. The rest of the week is uncertain, but there looks to be various rain/storm chances about every day except for Thursday. Highs are generally in the 70s and lows in the 50s.
