Thank goodness. It's about time we had nice weather hit on a weekend! A cold front moving through this morning will bring in lower humidity for the next couple days. When you couple that with mostly sunny skies (after some cloudiness this morning), you've got the recipe for a great July weekend. That's perfect for those heading to Sparta for the Quaker State 400! It will still be quite warm, in the mid to upper 80s, but that lower humidity will still be a nice treat.
Heat and humidity return next week, alongside more storm chances. Highs in the 90s are expected during the entire workweek next week and the best storm chances look to be Tuesday (scattered) and Thursday (more widespread). While some stronger storms can't be ruled out due to instability, there's not a lot of wind energy to work with next week. That's a good thing... we'll likely not see a widespread severe weather event due to that! Whew!
Storms may pose a problem for those with outdoor events next weekend, unfortunately. Check out the video below for more details on that 14 day Earliest Alert Outlook.
