WEATHER BLOG: Warm & Humid
#mdwx: Good evening! We could easily top out, like Saturday, in the low 90s again Sunday and Monday. A very warm and humid rest of the extended holiday weekend is expected. The front stretched out to the northwest will remain to our northwest Saturday night and Sunday, but we do have some ongoing convection north of the area and some short wave energy to deal with into the overnight. Not everyone will get hit with a shower or thunderstorm, but we have to keep it included in the forecast though the chance really diminishes by 2 a.m. With high dew points, patchy fog can form before dawn, mainly outside of the city, and with the dew points up, places that don’t get hit with a shower or thunderstorm will probably stay a few degrees warmer than forecast.
By Sunday morning, the first short wave should exit to our east and we will have to wait until the heat of the day to initiate any scattered showers or thunderstorms. The timing of the energy may be that anything before 2 p.m. may be very spotty, then activity may become a little more numerous with the approach and passage of that disturbance by the late afternoon. This will be the case Monday afternoon as well out ahead of a cold front moving in from the west. Once the cold front passes on Tuesday, drier and cooler conditions will prevail to finish out the week bringing highs down into the low 80s.
