A look at the Wednesday morning visible satellite image and mesoanalysis (below) shows a warm front approaching the region from the south. This boundary marks the leading edge of a warm and very sticky air mass…one that will push into our area today and remain in place into the weekend.
With the front approaching the area this morning we’ll have a fair amount of cloud cover to contend with through the morning and midday hours and there’s a possibility for a sprinkle or a quick isolated shower. Temperatures will climb into the middle 70s this morning and should top out between 75 and 80F this afternoon – when skies should turn partly sunny.
As the front moves through the area southerly winds will start to increase and dew point values will spike…climbing from the middle and upper 60s this morning to the lower and middle 70s by later in the day. You can see to our south and west dew point readings in the middle and even upper 70s!
Unfortunately, the muggy weather will remain over the area through the rest of the week, into the weekend and likely right into the first half of next week.
