Another seasonable, summer-like week (July 10-16) is ahead with temperatures around average. The pattern will be active, however, with numerous chances for showers and storms for the week ahead.
Monday, July 10: On Monday, the weather will be beautiful to kick off the new week, featuring sunny to partly cloudy skies, low humidity, and a nice, refreshing breeze. What a great day to be at the beach or the pool!
Tuesday, July 11: Then on Tuesday, the unsettled weather will begin to take control with hit or miss showers and thunderstorms possible throughout the day. The greatest chance for the storms are in the afternoon and evening because that it when temperatures are at their highest. This is a classic summertime pattern where all you need is heat and humidity to create a storm.
Wednesday, July 12: The weather on Wednesday will be a similar setup as it will be on Tuesday. Daytime heat throughout the day will lead to the development of thunderstorms in the afternoon and evening. In the morning, it should be nice and partly cloudy, but higher clouds due to storms in the area will filter the sunshine during the second half of Wednesday.
Thursday, July 13: Once again, scattered thunderstorms are possible on Thursday, especially at the end of the day because of the heat. Temperatures will rise into the mid 80s along with oppressive amounts of humidity.
Friday, July 14: Then on Friday, yet again, more showers and storms are possible, this time, however, it will be mainly in the morning. This is because it’s from a low pressure system, not summertime instability from the heat and moisture. Hopefully we’ll be able to salvage a nice and dry evening, which is what it’s appearing to be like, but the humidity will still be high and stubborn.
Saturday, July 15: Thankfully as we get into the weekend, I think the weather will trend drier for an extended period of time–What perfect timing for the weekend! On Saturday, expect sunny skies and low humidity. Temperatures will be very comfortable and normal for this time of the year in the low to mid 80s.
Sunday, July 16: Expect more of the same on Sunday with a continuation of the great beach weather. Sunday will be gorgeous, featuring mostly sunny skies.
