First Alert Thursday Outlook
Smoke, haze, humidity.....
After a slightly cooler and less humid start to the week, we’re gradually getting back to ‘normal’ with higher temps and more humidity. Highs today will be in the upper 80s to low 90s, with H.I. numbers topping out in the 90s. Friday will see temps and dew points creep up another degree or two. Another ongoing issue is the smoke and haze due to western fires. This smoke has been steered over a plains ridge and then southeast into the eastern U.S. The smoke will likely ebb and flow over the next few days, but the overall large-scale pattern over the U.S. may continue to send us surges of smoke into next week.
From late in the weekend and into early next week, thunderstorm chances will increase just a bit with more moisture and weak weather disturbances moving in from the west. No major system appear headed our way, but we should see a few isolated afternoon/evening storms begin to develop Sunday into Monday.
