July 29th, 2013 Forecast

Scattered showers and storms this evening will gradually taper off as a frontal boundary crosses the region later on. This front will not bring cooler air in its wake but will knock the humidity back down a few notches and bring us a couple of days of very nice summer weather with temperatures not far off of the norm for late July.

Thunderstorms this evening have produced epic amounts of rain in a short period of time -- some spots have picked up four or more inches of rain in a couple of hours. These storms will slowly march to the east and northeast over the next few hours, with the rest of the region seeing things dry out gradually as the night progresses. Lower humidity will gradually work in but today's heavy rainfall will yield fog in spots, perhaps northwest...also possible along I-95 where the heaviest of rains fell today.  Lows by daybreak in the 60's.

Monday will be a nice day -- sunshine with lowering humidity levels, a breeze from the west to dry out the atmosphere. High temperatures generally in the mid 80's for almost all locations.  Going to be a very nice late July day.

Tuesday may end up being nicer with even lower humidity levels.  Lows on both Monday night and Tuesday night will drop into the 50's in the typically cooler burbs while the city gets the 60's (nobody's complaining about that!), with more humidity nudging back into the picture for Thursday, Friday, and Saturday ahead of another cool front approach.  No 90's in sight, however, for at least the next week, perhaps two.
