WLDY-WJBL NEWS 6-30-20 Drier weather will take hold today with high pressure generally in control. A very warm air mass covers the region so with the return of more sunshine, temperatures will have no problem warming up quickly and we should end up with highs right around 90. Humidity will remain on the higher side, and with dew points hovering around 70, it will feel rather tropical-like outside. The unstable conditions may be just enough to spark an isolated late day storm, but again most places won’t see it. Wednesday will bring a returned chance for at least scattered thunderstorms but chances remain questionable and are based on the potential for another weak disturbance to push up from the south. A few extra clouds would also be around, dropping highs just a few degrees.
