It was a rough and tumble Thursday around the region with numerous showers and storms and a slew of severe thunderstorms warnings and wind damage reports. Not only did we have wind, but we had tons of lightning and lots of locally heavy rainfall.
Today, the actual cold front will slide through and bring a few showers and storms, but I expect the coverage of showers and storms to be significantly lower than what we had yesterday. The greater coverage of storms will be the farther south you go in the area. Highs today will be in the lower 90s for most.
Tomorrow, we will get into the drier air behind that front, and it will be noticeably less muggy. Highs will be in the lower 90s, and while the rain chance is not zero, most spots will stay dry.
Sunday looks much the same with lower 90s and lower humidity and only an isolated storm chance.
More heat next week....
Enjoy the little respite this weekend because the heat and humidity will crank again next week. Highs will surge back into the mid to upper 90s with lows in the mid 80s and very humid conditions.
Colin is a classified tropical storm again, and will likely move just west of Bermuda tomorrow. The system will not impact the US mainland.
See the Tropical Page of this site for more Colin information.
