A stormy Father's Day weekend

Hot and humid weather is expected this Father's Day weekend, with scattered storms possible in the afternoon to evening each day.

Posted: Jun 18, 2020 10:51 PM

Our weather pattern changes dramatically starting this weekend. We had
plenty of sunshine this week, but as humidity begins to build in we will have
the chance for thunderstorms. This is as high pressure moves out of the
region and a low pressure system moves closer. It will bring a south wind
with hot and humid air.

Thursday evening, a few storms rolled through the region. This marks the
first day of increasing humidity. It will only continue to get more humid
each day this weekend. Dew points were in the 50s Thursday, reaching the
lower 60s Thursday night. Eventually by Sunday, dew points will be around 70
degrees with oppressive humidity. This type of weather is similar to tropical
conditions.

Increasing humidity means the better chance for thunderstorms. Not only will
it be humid this weekend, but also hot. Hot air fuels thunderstorms because
it rises and brings moisture up with it. This is why we will have the chance
for thunderstorms all weekend.

For your Father's Day weekend, we will start the morning dry each day with
temperatures in the 60s. If you want to make outdoor plans, you should do it
in the morning. By the afternoon and into the evening each day, we will have
scattered thunderstorms. It will also be hot and humid with highs in the mid
to upper 80s.
