Shower Coverage Increasing

Many of us have been dry since the end of last week and you may very well miss your turn again today. However, moving forward there's plenty to go around. This afternoon's "widely scattered" coverage of showers and storms diminishes later this evening. However Wednesday through the foreseeable future has "scattered" coverage or better. Temperatures are kept at mid-August standards thanks to clouds and showers, but it remains quite muggy.


Hi: 80 Lo: 66

Partly cloudy; A few widely scattered evening thundershowers; Light wind

Hi: 81 Lo: 67

Partly to mostly cloudy; Scattered PM showers & t-storms; Light wind becoming South 5-10 mph

Hi: 80 Lo: 67

Partly sunny; Scattered to numerous afternoon to early evening showers & t-storms; Light wind becoming SE 5-10 mph

Hi: 79 Lo: 66

Partly to mostly cloudy; Scattered PM showers & thunderstorms

Hi: 79 Lo: 66

Mostly cloudy; Widespread showers & thundershowers

Further Out

Monday - Mostly cloudy; Scattered showers & t-showers, mostly PM; High in the upper 70s; Low in the mid 60s

Forecast Discussion

Gulf moisture is on the increase around the western edge of the Bermuda High while a front pressing into the Ohio Valley stalls in its track. Those features are the main weather topics really for the rest of the work week. The moistening up of the atmosphere is a two day process that began yesterday. Similar to yesterday we had widely scattered afternoon to early evening showers and storms today. These showers and storms diminish later this evening.

Once the atmosphere is sufficiently primed, tomorrow through Friday have good coverage of (mostly) PM thundershowers.

An upper disturbance slowly moving east from the Mississippi Valley enhances rain opportunities this weekend. Showers will not be limited to the PM hours making it difficult to enjoy prolonged outdoor activities. Maybe another front actually makes a pass through here a week from now prompting a rain reprieve, but for now we have showers continuing next Monday.
