August 12th, 2013 Forecast

Humidity will increase through the night tonight as a frontal boundary moves up from the south.  This front could spawn an isolated shower or thunderstorm, but outside of that just look for partly cloudy skies.  Viewing of the Perseid meteor shower, which peaks tonight between 11 PM and 5 AM, will still be okay but not as good as last night.  Lows will range from 63 to 70 across the region.

Monday will be humid with some hazy sun, but lots of clouds will be around.  The frontal boundary will spawn a few spotty showers and thunderstorms, but not everyone will get wet.  High temperatures will reach the mid 80s in most places.

As a cold front approaches from the northwest on Tuesday, it will interact with the other frontal boundary and a line of thunderstorms will develop.  Some of these storms could reach severe limits, so be sure to keep an eye to the sky.

Behind that cold front is a cool, dry airmass from Canada.  Wednesday through Friday will feature awesome weather with bright sunshine and low humidity, and highs will be right around 80 degrees.

For the weekend, there is a bit of uncertainty as an area low pressure tracks up the East Coast.  We could see a shower or thunderstorm on both Saturday and Sunday, but it all depends on how close the low gets to our region.  Neither day looks to be a wash-out, but we'll fine tune the forecast for you as we get new data.
