SHOWERS & STORMS RETURN THIS EVENING; SEVERE WEATHER NOT EXPECTED… Scattered rain with a few embedded thunderstorms will become widespread later this evening into Monday. Temperatures will remain in the upper-60s this afternoon ahead of a warm, humid week with temperatures well above our climatological norms for this time of year. While I am not expecting any severe weather issues tonight or on Monday, there could be a few thunderstorms capable of producing heavy rain with at least some thunder and lightning. I think thunderstorms will be more of the anomaly with occasional rain being more of the norm tonight into Monday. If you like consistency in your weather forecast, there is quite a bit of that this week. Let’s look at a few details.
RAIN & STORMS LIKELY MONDAY… The cold front that moved across our area on Saturday will stall and lift northward across our region tonight into Monday. This will put our area, once again, south of the warm front and in a warm, semi-unstable sector. Severe storms are not expected, but the air mass will be “unstable enough” for rain and a few thunderstorms throughout the day on Monday. Temperatures will be in the low- to mid-70s through much of the afternoon and evening.
MORE RAIN & A FEW STORMS MIDWEEK AS WELL… The weather pattern in place over our area will not change that much as we go into Tuesday AND Wednesday. High temperatures will rise into the upper-70s as scattered showers and thunderstorms continue across the region. Severe weather is not expected on Tuesday or Wednesday, either. Overnight lows midweek will be in the 60s.
SHOWERS LIKELY LATER THIS WEEK, TOO… Isolated showers will be possible on Thursday and Friday as well as our unsettled, warm pattern continues. We finally get some signs of change later in the week, however, as high temperatures will be in the lower-70s with overnight lows near 60°.
COLD FRONT ARRIVES THIS WEEKEND… Much cooler air will arrive during the upcoming weekend as a cold front approaches from the northwest. The Storm Prediction Center is noting that, based on current model trends, the risk of severe weather with this approaching front remains low. I suspect this will be a low-end, highly marginal risk of strong to severe storms on Saturday of the upcoming weekend. This will be something to monitor throughout the week, but it is certainly nothing to worry about right now. High temperatures Saturday will be near 70° but highs on Sunday will drop into the 50s after the passage of the cold front.
