This evening remains quite muggy with isolated showers or t-showers lingering until shortly after dusk. Friday is brighter and much warmer with only a few isolated afternoon thundershowers.

Forecast Discussion

After today we can put the "remnants of Barry" verbiage to rest. What's left of Barry passes to our north and exits stage right this evening. We'll contend with a few passing showers/thunder that wrap up shortly after dusk.

High pressure builds over the Southeast tomorrow through the weekend though it's not strong enough to suppress afternoon thundershower development. There's just too much heat and humidity in play so after a mostly calm Friday expect better coverage of thunder Saturday and Sunday.

A bona fide cool front approaches from the north Monday and scoots through Tuesday night. Both days have rather good coverage of showers and storms. Cooler air starts oozes south with the front Tuesday and hangs around for the middle of next week. The airmass behind the front is refreshingly less humid. Perfect timing, we'll be in need of a break from the muggies by then.
