Scattered Showers and Isolated Thunderstorms Friday
We can expect widespread showers and isolated thunderstorms on Friday with possible strong storms that could produce gusty winds up to 40 mph, frequent lightning and brief heavy downpours. Low pressure will sling a cold front toward the area for the weekend and could bring in just enough drier air to limit rain chances at least for Saturday. Those rain chances will look to increase again Sunday as Tropical Storm Isaías will help push deep moisture into the region. Even if you don’t get any rain, you will feel that thick humidity in the air.
Speaking of the tropical storm, Isaías could be a Category 1 hurricane by Saturday as he approaches the Bahamas. The current track has Isaías sliding up the east coast and away from our area as we’ll be buffered by a cold front coming in from the west, but we’ll keep monitoring to see if there are any changes.
We’ll be getting hotter starting tomorrow through the weekend with near seasonal temps. Highs will be in the low to mid 90s, but the high humidity will make it feel like the low 100s.
