More than an inch of rain fell this morning as a weak low pressure system passed southeast of the city. The rain has ended and look, here comes the sun. The quick return of sunshine should help push today's high to the mid 80s but the humidity will make it feel several degrees warmer than that.
This morning's rain has pushed July's rainfall to well over five inches, making this the wettest month since December 2014. The monthly rainfall total is likely to increase over the weekend as there is still plenty of moisture in the air and a couple of low pressure systems are expected to pester the area. Saturday should start off with mostly clear skies but showers and thunderstorms are a good bet by the afternoon. Tomorrow's high will be in the very humid low 80s.
Muggy weather will continue on Sunday but there is some uncertainty as to whether or not that will lead to another round of scattered showers and thunderstorms. The National Weather Service believes the best chance of Sunday precipitation will be to the north and west of the city while the Weather Channel brings that rain much closer to us. The chance of rain continues into Monday before drier air finally arrives on Tuesday.
