Wednesday our atmosphere is still primed for storm activity with heat and humidity. Instability in the atmosphere comes to us by way of a cold front which will usher in a line of severe weather through the region northwest to southeast. These storms could pack quite a punch with damaging winds, hail, heavy rain fall, and the slight chance of a quick spin up tornado. Temps once again above average with feel like temps into the 90s.
Severe weather threats remain damaging winds and localized high water. With ground already saturated, high winds will likely uproot large trees quite easily. Power outages will be an issued Wednesday. Isolated hail is also possible with the strongest of storms. Storms will come and go throughout the day leading to changing conditions on roads and local streams quickly. A day to stay #WeatherAware for sure.
Thursday we continue the severe threat with damaging winds and localized high water. Small hail is also possible with the strongest of storms. A warm front lifting towards the north brings more humidity and instability into the region leading to heavy downpours that could stress already swollen creeks and streams. Monitor your local water ways closely and remember to never drive over a flooded roadway.
Friday continues to soggy pattern with scattered showers and storms. A few less than the previous day but overall worthy of carrying the umbrella. With any summertime thunderstorm, a strong to severe storm can happen, but for Friday the risk is low.
Saturday we start to see more sunshine with only an isolated shower or two around. Temps begin to cool thanks to a cold front the previous day back closer to average. The real improvement will be with humidity levels as we get back into a more comfortable zone.
Sunday the sunshine returns after a few morning sprinkles and humidity levels continue to drop. Overall, Sunday is looking like a great day to get outside and enjoy. Temps in the low 80s and sunshine will make for a pleasant summer afternoon.
In your extended forecast, we get back to a more summer-time feel with temps closer, if not above average. A couple of pop-up showers indicative of summer will be present but overall, that July weather is here to stay.
With summer weather we have to watch for summer storms so make sure your thoughts are turning to preparedness! Refresh your emergency kit and grab that NOAA weather radio that’s still on your shopping list. Add it to your baby registry, wedding registry – and don’t forget an external antenna, as many of us need one to get the best reception.
