Unseasonably warm, humid air remains over the state today and tomorrow before a weak “back door” cold front moves through Thursday. Back door means the front moves in from the North, rather than West to East.
The good news: the front will give us slightly cooler, less humid conditions for Friday through the weekend. The bad news: the front looks to stall out near the coast on Friday. This could throw a monkey wrench into the forecast with a few more showers Friday and during the weekend, along with a slight chance of a wedge set-up Friday, although I think more likely for a wedge in the mountains.
Our next cold front, after the weekend, arrives late Tuesday of next week. This will bring us cooler temperatures.
Today: Patchy morning fog, very warm and humid with a 30% chance of showers and isolated thunderstorms. Highs upper 80s to near 90
Thursday: Patchy morning fog, very warm and humid with a 40% chance of showers and thunderstorms. Highs upper 80s
Friday: Mostly cloudy, cooler with a 20% chance of showers. Highs middle 80s
