A very pleasant Saturday is in store for the plateau, followed by a warmer and more humid Sunday. That additional heat and humidity could lead to an afternoon storm, but a great many of us will stay dry. An unsettled pattern begins to evolve on Monday and will be with us for a few days, with warmth and humidity combining with various disturbances passing through to give us better rain chances. Those rain chances peak on Wednesday.
A tropical system impacting southern Florida today will stay too far south of our region to give us any rain.
This Week’s Hazards
