Weather from NBC Storm Team 4 — Updated 4:55 p.m., Aug. 1, 2015

A few isolated showers will impact the region through the early evening hour,s but for most of us the weekend will be completely dry. Overnight skies Saturday will become mainly clear with some patchy fog possible, especially in the more rural areas. Sunday will be another spectacular August day with abundant sunshine, low humidity levels, and highs in the lower-to-middle 90s.

The new work week, however, will bring some unwelcome changes. As high pressure slides eastward and a cold front marches in from the Great Lakes, hotter and more humid air will be drawn into our area. Expect a “feels like temperature” Monday near 100 when you factor in the increased humidity. As the front approaches Monday evening and night, there may be some scattered showers and storms mainly in our northern suburbs, but most communities will remain dry. The cold front will stall to our south Tuesday, but it will be close enough to keep the risk of an isolated shower or storm in the forecast. Otherwise, the weather will stay pretty hot and humid Tuesday. Highs Wednesday will be close to 90, so we could actually have a 13-day heat wave. Regardless, it will be warm and a bit humid with a small chance of a late day shower or storm. The best chance of rain for the upcoming work week looks to be Thursday. Stay with Storm Team 4 as we continue to track the humidity and timing of storms.
