We have been under the influence of a record-breaking ridge that has broken more high temperature records in the last week than ever before on record across the country. It is finally showing signs of breaking down as an upper low pressure spins across the mid-section of the country. This system has had a history of producing record rain and severe weather. Out ahead of it is drawing up plenty of moisture and humidity.
We will first really start to take note of the increased humidity over the next couple of days with heat indices near 90 in some of our warmer locations. Rain coverage will hold at 20% or less mainly in Georgia and near I-75. As our cold front moves closer and combines forces with our muggy air mass late Saturday we will see a big increase in showers and thunderstorms. We cannot rule out a strong storm or two. On Sunday this system moves north with only a leftover shower or storm possible. So overall it will be a weekend to enjoy your plans but keep an eye to the northwest sky by late Saturday.
