Tonight we’ll see scattered storms popup in the afternoon heat which will carry through the evening hours. Some storms could be on the strong to severe side with damaging wind and localized high water our main threats. After the rain comes to an end we’ll see fog, dense at times, reform like we did Sunday Morning. Good night to take it easy on the area roadways for sure.
There is a small (level 1 of 5) potential for severe weather in our area Sunday. For now, it doesn’t look very likely we’ll see much if any severe weather, but we do have at least some of the ingredients present to build up a few stronger storms. It’s likely strong winds, and some small hail will the primary concern if we see anything.
Monday more showers and storms are possible especially through the second half of the day as our system stalls out to our east. Highs will climb back into the mid-80s at least as the southerly flow remains in place.
Tuesday is looking unsettled as well, no rest for the weary here. Showers and storms will return through the day as our low pressure collapses on the edge of our strong Bermuda high. Abundant moisture will be left behind, and combined with the heat of the day should help the storms get going.
Wednesday we still have plenty of moisture hanging around the area. As we heat back up into the 80s we’ll see another prominent round through the afternoon hours of the day and into the evening. We’ll have to be watching the risk of some flooding by either Tuesday or Wednesday as rain totals will start to add up and the ground will likely be fairly saturated in many areas.
Thursday has some hints it might be on the drier side but clouds will still be a consistent feature throughout the daytime across much of the region. Showers will likely roll through the cloud cover here or there but should be more isolated in nature versus previous days. Highs in the low to mid 80s are expected.
Friday looks to follow in Thursday’s footsteps as high pressure tries to take control but will do so unsuccessfully. We’ll still be about average with highs in the mid 80s under mostly sunny skies. We will kick off our weekend with an isolated shower and storm in the afternoon possible as our next system sets up for the weekend. We’ll see rain chances increase well into the overnight with lows in the low-mid 60s.
Saturday brings back the rain which will be a bit more widespread for our area. We’ll be watching for localized high water with all the rain we’ve had over the last week. Highs still mild in the mid 80s which could spark off an afternoon thunderstorm among the rain showers.
Heading into the end of next week, it does look like we chisel away a little at our blocking high pressure but through the end of the 10-day forecast, it does look to maintain its hold over the area. Despite the rain at least we’ll stay in the 80s.
