Good morning everyone. As a follow up to my Monday post, a cold front will be arriving later this afternoon causing showers and storms to develop over the region. This is not a particularly strong cold front so temps will be reduced a little going into the weekend but the biggest factor the humidity will decrease more.
The image below represents the period from 2-5pm. You can see the model projects heavy showers and storms for that time frame for many spots in the area..
Ahead of this however we have another miserable hot and humid day with temps easily into the 90's.
In the wake of the front temps will be reduced into the upper 80's maybe low 90's for the weekend but it will feel much more comfortable. We will also have an upper level trough over the area..
This could cause an upper level disturbance or two which could spawn a shower or two but overall it should be a nice weekend.
By the way earlier in the week we have a very strong cold pool aloft move in over WY and Montana. This caused rare July mountain snows! Here is that trough below out west back on Tuesday.
The result was this over 8,000ft...
Enjoy the weekend guys.
