Rain coverage and humidity will be on the rise starting today. This will only increase over the weekend and the beginning of next week.

Today and Tonight: Humidity is going to return to the area once again starting today. With that added moisture, some spotty showers/thunderstorms will be possible in the afternoon and evening times. Temperatures will be a little above average and we will max out around 96 degrees under partly cloudy skies. Tonight, we will get into the upper 70's and spotty showers will be possible.

Up Next: Rain coverage will increase even more by Saturday afternoon and at least 50% of the area could see some rainfall. A very similar pattern will continue through the rest of the weekend and even into Monday. Some drier air looks to filter into the area by Tuesday, which will limit rain chances and lower humidity through the middle of next week.
