Oppressive humidity came back to town today, and it won’t be in any hurry to leave. That’s one of the main stories through this weekend. Considerable cloudiness, occasional rain  and summerlike temperatures are the other tales. We do need the rain, though, so let’s hope for the best on that front!

Through Tonight: A diffuse warm front is sitting across the region, but so far the more unstable air has stayed predominantly to our south and west. That may continue to change a bit this evening as the front drifts north. The heaviest storms should try to stay south and west of here, but some spillover into our area is possible, as is periodic rain into the overnight. Additionally, any heavier shower and storm can produce locally intense rain, dangerous lightning and perhaps a flash-flood risk, should it sit around for long. Odds of more substantial activity are generally lower east of I-95. Lows range from about 66 to 73. Winds are light.

Tomorrow (Saturday): We might have some of the overnight rainfall activity still in the area; if so, it’s exiting as the morning progresses. The day should be largely rain-free, but more showers and storms could try to pop up in the afternoon, especially south and east of the city. As with today, the severe threat isn’t particularly notable, but any storms could contain heavy rain in particular. High temperatures range from the mid-80s to around 90. Winds are out of the south around 10 mph.

Father’s Day (Sunday): Something of a gift for dads? This day should feature less in the way of rain potential and perhaps some clearer skies than recent times. Besides that, the weather is not exactly amazing. Under partly sunny skies, highs reach the upper 80s and lower 90s. With high humidity locked into the area, it is hard to rule out an isolated storm late in the day. Standard summer fare around here.
