MORE HEAVY SHOWERS

This Futurecast model shows spotty showers and thunderstorms. Many will produce heavy downpours.

A stationary front and an upper level area of low pressure slowly drifting west keep the chance for showers and storms on Tuesday.  With plenty of moisture still in the atmosphere, expect these spotty storms to bring heavy downpours Tuesday morning.  A Flash Flood Watch remains in effect until 8 P.M. Tuesday because of this.  The spotty showers and storms continue through the afternoon.  There will be dry time for many, and some see a lot more rainfall than others.  It is not until the evening that the activity begins to fade again.  Highs reach the lower 80s.  Overnight, expect just a few heavy showers with lows in the upper 60s.

 

 

SLOWLY DRYING

Wednesday looks to be wet again, with spotty showers and thunderstorms.  There still is the potential for some heavier downpours.  This is yet another scenario where there will be wetter spots than others.  Some dry time is expected too for most.  Highs reach the middle 80s.

 

 

THE HEAT RETURNS

The Bermuda area of high pressure responsible for keeping the upper level low pressure from moving east begins to surge back into the region Thursday.  It pushes the upper level pattern west, forcing it to retrograde.  This means the warmth returns and the thunderstorm chance becomes isolated.  The Fourth of July looks partly sunny with an isolated thunderstorm chance.  Highs reach the middle to upper 80s.  The isolated thunderstorm chance remains through the weekend.  Highs hover near the 90 degree mark through Monday.

 

 

Have a great Tuesday!
