Weather: Stuck with Sticky


Stuck with Sticky

By Gerard Roe
Staff Meteorologist

The pressure gradients will tighten today as the axis of a cold front swings by tonight. The long southerly fetch of warm air ahead of it will, however, produce hot and muggy conditions across the region. The air is quite unstable ahead of the front, so as clouds build during the afternoon, we may see some thunderstorms in the area. Saturday looks to be quite pleasant with clouds clearing and a cooler northwesterly wind bringing some relief.

Friday: Mostly sunny in the morning, clouds developing during the afternoon. Muggy southwesterly winds. An uncomfortable high of 89F (32C). A late afternoon thunderstorm is a distinct possibility.

Friday night: Mostly cloudy with some light rain possible. A sticky night with a low of 72F (22C).

Saturday: Partly sunny. A cooler northwest wind blowing, and becoming clearer. High 77F (25C). Low 60F (16C).
