We have been in a taste of August weather for the past several days with warm and humid conditions. High temperatures have been slightly below normal, but the humidity has been keeping it feeling like late summer. A very weak and washed out frontal boundary pushed through earlier today and in its wake some residual moisture has allowed for a few pop up showers. These showers should dissipate quickly this evening and they will be few and far between.
Expect a mix of sunshine and clouds for your Thursday with highs heading into the lower and middle 80s once again. We will start off in the lower 60s with some patchy fog possible. A disturbance in the atmosphere will move east Thursday night from the Midwest and bring an area of showers and embedded thunderstorms. This means that rain will be likely on Friday for a good portion of the day. As of right now, it looks like rain will be most likely in the morning and afternoon hours. The rain should taper off to just scattered showers for the evening. Because of the clouds and rain, temperatures will likely be held to just the lower and middle 70s making it a very cool day for summer.
The upper level disturbance may get hung up over the Ohio Valley this weekend thanks to a weak jet stream above (typical for late summer). This means a few scattered thunderstorms cannot be ruled out both days of the weekend. The highest chance for rain will be on Saturday. Highs will be in the 80s both days with lower in the 60s. The humidity will be back in full swing as well.
