July 27: Relief On The Way, Daily Links


It was hot and muggy again today, but relief is on the way…just in time for the weekend!

It will still be warm and muggy tonight, with scattered showers and thunderstorms becoming likely after midnight.  I’m not in love with the way ANY of the forecast models are handling this, but the RPM shown here at least has a reasonable pattern:

It’s not a well-organized storm system (which is typical this time of year), so the computers have a hard time grabbing onto the relevant features.  A few of the storms could be strong or even briefly severe, but at this point organized severe weather looks unlikely:

Scattered showers and thunderstorms will continue through most of the day on Friday, with once again a very limited severe weather threat:

Temperatures tonight will only drop to the mid 70s:

With the clouds and rain hanging around Friday, highs will only reach the mid 80s:

We’ll stay in the mid 80s for highs over the weekend, with the humidity dropping noticeably on Saturday and remaining quite tolerable on Sunday:

Me too, goose.  Me too.

The dry weather over the weekend will continue into at least the first half of next week:
