Rowan weather: Steamy

SALISBURY — A warm, muggy start to the day is an indication of what to expect at least through next Tuesday. We’re going to be hot, humid and uncomfortable with a chance of showers and thunderstorms every day, mainly in the afternoon and evening hours.
Any storm could become severe, with frequent cloud-to-ground lightning, torrential downpours and gusty winds.
Today’s air quality is less dangerous, in the yellow zone, meaning it may affect unusually sensitive people. The UV index is again very high. Take precautions to protect against sun damage.
Our 30 percent chance of rain today will be mostly after 3 p.m. Heat will build up under mostly sunny skies to a high near 92. The chance of showers diminishes after about 8 p.m. Winds will become calm after midnight, with a low around 69.
Friday, the chance of afternoon showers and storms is 40 percent, under mostly sunny skies with a high near 89. Rain chances linger into the night past 2 a.m., under mostly cloudy skies and a low of 68.
Saturday’s 40 percent chance of rain could start as early as 10 a.m., with mostly cloudy conditions and a high again near 89. The nighttime low, still with the chance of rain, will be around 67.
A 30 percent chance of showers and storms is predicted for Sunday, mainly after 1 p.m. It will be partly sunny and near 90. The low, with a continuing chance of rain, will be around 68.
And it’s just more of the same to start your next work week. Monday, partly sunny, near 88, 40 percent chance of precipitation. Monday night, around 68, 30 percent chance of rain. Ditto for Tuesday, but a degree warmer, near 89; 40 percent chance of showers and storms; nighttime low around 69, 30 percent chance of rain. A high near 87 Wednesday under partly sunny skies includes a 30 percent chance of precipitation.
