Hot and humid to start the week

Hot and humid conditions are expected on Monday and Tuesday, then it stays warm for the rest of the week.

Posted: Aug 9, 2020 11:25 PM

A low pressure system moves towards us from the West for the start of
the week. A warm front attached to the front end of this system moves in on
Monday. This will bring hot and humid conditions for Monday and Tuesday. A
weak cold front on the back end of this low pressure system will move through
late Tuesday into early Wednesday. The humidity will drop for Wednesday and
Thursday, but temperatures will stay fairly warm. Even into the weekend, it
looks to stay warm.

Here's the details. As a warm front moves through on Monday, we will start
the day with temperatures near 70 degrees and patchy fog in the valleys. The
fog lifts throughout the morning for some sunshine. Temperatures will quickly
rise into the 80s by lunchtime. During the afternoon, highs will reach the
upper 80s with partly sunny skies and a few isolated thunderstorms. The rain
ends just after sunset. Muggy and warm again Monday night with lows near 70
degrees and valley fog developing.

Tuesday is another hazy, hot, and humid day. Highs will be around 90 degrees
with dew points near 70 degrees. Sunshine is expected to start the day, then
cloud cover increases during the afternoon with a few isolated storms by the
evening. The rain continues Tuesday night into Wednesday as a weak cold front
moves through.

A few showers and storms stick around Wednesday morning and afternoon, mainly
in the Southern Valleys. As this cold front moves through, the humidity
drops, but temperatures stay warm with highs in the mid 80s.

Temperatures stay warm for the end of the week. Highs reach the mid 80s on
Thursday and Friday. Not a big change for the weekend with highs in the lower
80s on Saturday and Sunday.
