Turning drier for the end of the week (8/9/22)
A frontal system continued to have an influence over our weather on Tuesday. As a result, many in the FOX 23 coverage area had to deal with a few showers and thunderstorms at times.
The front appears to hang around for a little while longer, allowing scattered storm chances to remain on Wednesday. Although we can’t rule out a storm or two anywhere, it appears that the southern regions of our coverage area are favored to see storm activity as the day progresses.
Wednesday will likely be our coolest day in the immediate future, with high temperatures in the lower to middle-80s.
By Thursday, the front will have pushed to our south. This will allow rain chances to come to an end. We’ll still be warm and maintain some humidity on Thursday. For that reason, we’re keeping the Skeeter Meter in the “High” category.
Friday and Saturday look like really nice days. A less humid air mass will approach as we get closer to the weekend. This will provide some degree of comfort to the air, especially on Saturday.
Rain chances appear to be fairly low through the weekend. However, by next week we could be watching our next potential rainmakers.
