Forecast Discussion

An unsettled week of weather is in store for much of the Commonwealth next week, with thunderstorms dominating the picture. A low pressure system from the Great Lakes will bring periods of showers and thundershowers through much of next week. Morning sun giving way to afternoon storms will be the common daily trend through late-week, but with nicer weather on the way for next weekend. High pressure will slowly but surely build over the northeastern U.S. from Friday onward, with drier conditions expected. Temperature-wise, it will be nowhere near as hot as last week. Monday will see temps climb well into the eighties, with some locales topping 90. But, expect a cool-down beginning Tuesday, with temperatures falling back a few degrees below seasonal averages. Humidity will stick around for a few extra days, so it will feel muggy early in the week, but it will feel very pleasant and summer-like just in time for the dog days of August.
