Strong to Severe Storms Possible Tuesday, Wet Week Ahead

Weather

Tuesday the chance of some passing showers grows during the afternoon hours, some of these could be slow movers thanks to high pressure which could cause a few isolated issues wherever they sit. We need the rain, however, so this is very beneficial, and widespread flooding is not expected. Temperatures will be very warm as highs make it back into the mid and upper 80s.

A level one of five risk is in place for severe weather on Tuesday afternoon. We aren’t expecting a lot of storms at or above severe limits, but some could push it with very gusty winds. The hail and tornado threat is extremely low. Gusty winds and isolated flooding potential are our two biggest concerns.

Wednesday, leftover showers from the night before will likely continue into the morning hours and then a fresh round is possible through the afternoon hours. Highs remain into the mid and upper 80s, with some cool spots wherever the hit and miss showers hit. Severe weather remains unlikely through the day.

Thursday is arguably one of the days this week with the lowest chance for rain. A few hit or miss showers will still be possible through the afternoon and evening hours but most will likely not see rain during the day. Less rain, means fewer clouds, so it will be another hot one with most getting into the upper 80s!

Friday, an approaching front helps to spark showers and storms during the afternoon these are still very much the some see it all and some get nothing type of showers. So be mindful if you’re waiting for rain and you haven’t seen it yet, you may still be left out to dry. Highs in the 80s are expected.

Rain totals throughout the workweek look to be between one and two inches for some of the area. Keep in mind, the hit or miss nature of these storms could leave some of us with less. Overall this is very helpful and should help out as far as the drought status is concerned.

Saturday, as the front passes we’ll see more scattered showers and storms. With the front being so nearby we might see more widespread coverage of storms, but for now we’re keeping rain chances on the lower side. Highs remain in the 80s.

Sunday, low but still there shower chances remain as our exiting cold front stall out to our south. This will hold a lot of the worst of the heat and humidity at bay, but it will still have enough influence over the region to trigger a few showers and storms. Highs will sit to the low upper 70s and low 80s.

Monday, a very similar set-up to the day before presents itself. More showers are possible as moisture surges up from the south and gets caught along our stalled out front. Clouds will also be fairly present throughout the day. Highs make quick jog back to the low 80s for most.

In the extended forecast we’re still tracking showers and seasonable heat. So hopefully we see that rain we need by the time August is all said and done!
