Rowan weather: A slight reprieve

It’s a bit less humid today, 84 percent, compared to humidity in the 90+ percent range, so the warm air is less oppressive.

Today will be partly sunny and not as hot, with a high of 88 and a southwest wind shifting to the northwest at 5-9 mph. Tonight’s low will be 68.

Thursday will be much the same, with a high of 87 and a low of 68.

For Friday, look for mostly sunny skies and a high near 89. The low will be 70.

Then our run of decent summer days goes back to hot and muggy, with a 30 percent chance of showers and storms Saturday, after 5 p.m. The high will be 94 and the low, with the same 30 percent chance of rain, will be 71.

Sunday’s going to be a repeat, with a 30 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms and a high of 94 again. Sunday night, the chance of rain lingers and the low will be 72.

To start the new week, there’s no mention of rain Monday, but it will be very hot, with a high of 97. The low will be 72.

The 30 percent chance of rain comes back Tuesday, and it will be hot and sunny again, with a high of 95.
