Summer is officially here! Temperatures hit 90 degrees for the 1st time this month (2nd time this season). We have another day just like it Friday with heat and sunshine, without the humidity. Temperatures will rise into the upper 80s to low 90s.
The humidity will rise heading into the weekend, along with a a rising chance for showers and storms. It won't be a wash-out but you will need to be weather aware if you have outdoor plans.
There could be a light shower early Saturday. Then clouds will break for some sun and it will turn warm and humid midday with highs in the mid-upper 80s. By early-mid afternoon, we'll be watching for the chance for some locally strong to severe storms. Not every town will see one but any storms that develop have the potential to cause briefly strong gusty winds, heavy rain and frequent lightning.
A pop up shower or storm is possible on Sunday too. But again, not every town will see one and most of the time will be dry.
Looking ahead, next week looks warm and mainly dry. With a little luck we should be able to keep things dry for July 4th too!
