Scattered showers and weak thunderstorms will diminish later this evening as they continue to slide in from the north. Once these dissipate, expect a dry overnight with patchy fog and lows in the 50's. The overall weather pattern will continue to be dictated by a large upper trough that remains just to our east. This system will move little for the remainder of the work week, being blocked by a large high pressure system over the Northwest Atlantic. The end result will keep our temperatures near, to slightly below average while a few disturbances sliding in on the western side will bring a few more rain chances.
Wednesday should be a dry day for most with just some extra clouds at times in the afternoon. Expect us to have a shot at 80 in the afternoon with still comfortable levels of humidity. Thursday will be a similar day, but late in the afternoon and evening a few of us could see a shower or storm. The forecast models suggest a more vigorous disturbance will slide in from the north Friday afternoon, giving the region a better chance at these scattered showers and thunderstorms. Temperatures will continue to slowly rise through late week and into the weekend.
Speaking of the weekend, it should be a mostly dry one as we head into the first days of August. The flow will gradually become more southwesterly, leading to an increase in dew points and higher humidity. Saturday should see a good amount of sunshine, and though Sunday also looks pretty good, a few showers and storms may be close by to the north with another front pushing this way. The timing of this may keep better chances around on Monday, but after climbing further into the 80's, temperatures should drop some into early next week.
