The hot, sunny, comfortable, and quiet forecast will be coming to an end midweek. Better chances for rain and storms are expected for many days starting Wednesday. As for now, things remain pleasant outside. The southerly wind shift has taken our temperatures up into the upper 70s/low 80s. Dew point temperatures are running higher but still sit in a comfortable range. The MaxTrack, once again, remains clear.
It will not take long for us to enter the stormy pattern. In fact, as early as breakfast time tomorrow, rain and thunderstorms will canvas the area. Heavy rain, lightning, and strong wind gusts are expected as the storms come through. The entire forecast area is included in a “slight” risk for severe storms Wednesday. Two separate waves will run, one in the morning and again in the evening. The later wave will include the strongest of thunderstorms and the highest probability of severe weather. Storms will continue in waves, off and on, through the end of the week. Some good news in the forecast is the lower projection of precipitation for the upcoming weekend. We are still expecting rainfall through much of it, however, the amounts seem to be trending much lower. Let’s hope that continues.
