Sluggish Start, Strong Finish
Posted by Chris Lambert
A bit of a damp and cool start this morning with lots of low clouds, patchy drizzle and areas of fog, won't make it feel like a mid July's day right away, but we'll get back there on this 7day forecast as temps warm throughout the weekend, setting the stage for another heat wave next week.
The damp start this morning sees the few scattered rain showers and areas of drizzle dry up by lunchtime as a few breaks arrive in the overcast. There will be another pop-up shower in spots this afternoon, but much of the day has dry hours in it. Highs range from the mid 70s on the coast to near 80 inland.
Sunday's forecast is a bit better for the beach as highs head for the low to mid 80s near the coast, upper 80s inland. It'll be brighter too, although a few spots pick up a passing thunderstorm.
Heat wave number 3 of the year starts Monday with highs in the lower to middle 90s. Low to mid 90s stretch all the way through Friday as high humidity settles in too. The storm threat is low Monday-Wednesday, with just isolated storms Thursday and Friday. At times, winds will be weak, and that'll allow for sea breezes to kick in, adding just one more reason why the beach will be the place to be durning our latest stretch of heat.
Enjoy the weekend!
