PM Update: Heating up with storm chances

For those still weather-wary from last week’s heat wave and the derecho before that, this weekend offers a sense of July normalcy. That still means it’ll be plenty warm and plenty humid with a chance of thunderstorms. But nothing we can’t deal with and even enjoy to some degree.

Through Tonight: Despite the thickening clouds, we’ll probably make it through the evening either rain-free or with just an isolated shower. Overnight, the humidity increases and so does the chance of showers - to about 30% - as cloudy skies help lows stay up near 70 to the mid-70s.

The Weekend: Kind of par for the course as July weekends go. Skies are partly sunny and humidity is on the high side as highs warm from the upper 80s to near 90 on Saturday to low-to-mid 90s Sunday. Neither day looks like a washout, but both carry a 40% chance of showers and thunderstorms especially during the afternoon into evening.
