Monday will provide more unsettled weather to the region with a frontal boundary hanging around. Locally heavy rainfall repeatedly today will lead to high water issues this afternoon and evening. Sunshine will be in limited supply as clouds linger between rounds of showers. Temps suffer for it as we struggle to make it to the 80s today. Showers fade late tonight as dense patchy fog rolls in for the sheltered valleys.

Tuesday we’ll see more sunshine throughout the day but we aren’t done with the rain chances yet as a southern system sits too close for comfort to call the all clear. A few showers/storms possible, particularly towards our south mid afternoon. Over all, the extra sunshine and southwest winds will help us warm back to average in the mid 80s.

Wednesday is another day with more sunshine than storms and showers but the threat of such isn’t far away. A cold front is expected Wednesday night and with rising humidity and extra sunshine, a pop-up thunderstorm is possible late afternoon and evening. Not exactly a day to pack away the umbrella.

Thursday will provide a few scattered thunderstorms once again, with highs in the middle 80s. Some storms could once again provide some heavy rainfall opportunities. We’ll watch that carefully.

Friday brings a return of the sunshine and temperatures will respond, with highs jumping back up to the middle 80s.

Saturday looks hot, with plenty of sunshine and highs near 90 as we get back into the “real” July weather. Just remember the sunblock as UV indexes are sure to run high leading to short sunburn times.

Sunday brings back the threat of showers and storms, mainly in the afternoon as a weak upper level system rolls over the region. These types of systems typically don’t bring much moisture or last very long so sunshine can be expected at times. It just may be necessary to find shelter from the rain a few times throughout the day.

In your extended day forecast we are seeing indications for another soggy patter developing towards the end of July but the typical July heat as we head into August is back so enjoy the cooler than average temps now as we start pushing towards the 90s by the end of the month!

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.
