Sunny, hot and somewhat humid weather continues. Maybe a random tropical thunderstorm from time to time.

High pressure remains in general control of our region, meaning the trend of morning sunshine with some afternoon clouds should continue. The upper-air jet stream looks to continue its northerly ridge, so expect the hot temperatures to continue through the weekend and into next week. There’s just enough humidity in the air to generate a few clouds, especially later in the day, with a random tropical thunderstorm possible each day. I suspect any rain we get will only last a few minutes though, so enjoy your hot summer weekend!
