Weather from NBC Storm Team 4 — Updated 5:17 a.m. July 6, 2015
A weak warm front will continue passing through the area Monday. Dew points are already back in the low 70s, making it feel quite muggy. Scattered showers will taper off by midday, then the daytime heating and humidity and nearby front will combine to set off widely scattered thunderstorms again during the afternoon and evening hours, and some of them could be slow movers with briefly heavy rainfall. The showers and storms will end overnight as the front fizzles out and high pressure takes over.
The humidity will ease up on Tuesday, but with more sunshine, hotter temperatures will take over, so it won’t feel like much of a break. Any storms on Tuesday look like they will be very isolated. A weak cold front will pass through on Wednesday and bring another, better, chance of thunderstorms.
MONDAY: Mostly cloudy, very warm and muggy. A few widely scattered showers in the morning; scattered thunderstorms developing in the afternoon
