Lower Humidity Then Potentially Strong-Severe Storms on Friday

Humidity is down a smidge today.  That’s the biggest story in the near term.  Friday’s severe weather potential is the main weather headline down the road.

The humidity is a little lower today, especially along and north of I-40, where you see dew points (below) in the 60s.  That’s not too bad for mid July!

The drop in humidity is courtesy of a weak cold front that passed through yesterday.  The humidity will creep up ever so slightly tomorrow.  Then, on Friday, it’ll be a lot higher as a stronger southwest wind develops.

Temperatures outdoors as of 3pm today were typical — around 90.

They’ll fall back into the 80s and 70s overnight.  By morning, most areas will be in the 60s.

Expect highs tomorrow to be in the low 90s for most of you with just a few isolated showers and thunderstorms developing during the afternoon.

Friday will be variably cloudy, hotter, and much more humid.  A few thunderstorms will be possible during the morning.  However, a much better storm chance will develop during the afternoon and evening.  Some storms could be severe, especially over our northern counties.  Hail, damaging wind gusts, and isolated tornadoes will all be possible from any storms that form Friday afternoon or evening.

This weekend, some rain will linger.  It’ll be cooler, too.  Watch Lisa Spencer today starting at 4pm for a full breakdown on that.
