Maddie’s First Warning Forecast Increasing humidity with weekend storms
20 August, 2019, 01:56
More of the same Monday with some patchy fog in the morning, then hot and humid weather in the afternoon.
Tuesday will be the hottest day of the week with unsafe heat levels expected. Once you combine the oppressive humidity, it feels WAY hotter than that.
Outside the storms, temperatures will be back in the lower 90s Monday afternoon with the peak heat index 100 to 105. This front will likely linger through Wednesday bringing more scattered storms into Wednesday evening.
So, even though temperatures drop by a couple of degrees as we head into the first half of the week, the heat index will actually be a few degrees higher than it was this weekend. Sunday starts unsettled as a cold front rolls into the region. Expect mostly sunny skies this morning with partly cloudy skies this afternoon. Highs in the mid 80s. Overnight, lows fall into the 60s and even the 50s in our cooler areas by Saturday night.
A front moves closer by Tuesday bringing better chances of storm coverage.
