Another warm and muggy start on this Tuesday morning. Skies are cloudy and there are some showers in some of our western suburbs. Temperatures range from near 70 in Clifton to the low 60s further inland. Dew points are high in the upper 60s.
Unlike yesterday when we only received a few raindrops, today we will have showers and thunderstorms with some heavy downpours from late this morning into the early evening. The stationary front that was just to our south yesterday has moved over our area and a low pressure disturbance will move along the front to our area. Rainfall amounts of 1-2 inches are likely.
Most of the showers and thunderstorms will end by early this evening, but we should remain humid.
Wednesday should be drier than today with only a chance of showers.
Another low pressure will be moving along the front on Thursday which will likely cause more heavy showers and thunderstorms.
We finally dry out on Friday as high pressure builds into the area, temperatures will be seasonably warm but the humidity will finally be lower.
At this point the weekend still looks good with dry conditions and seasonably warm temperatures with low humidity.
Another frontal system may cause more showers on Monday.
