Winding down

Widespread rain takes a hike
Posted at 7:29 AM, Aug 01, 2020

We are mere hours away from seeing the last of the widespread rain move out. This will not be the last of the rain for the next few days, but it will help let water levels recede. The Flash flood threat has been eliminated as the last swath moves out. Temperatures will run mild this morning and warm this afternoon.

After the widespread rain leaves this morning, we will get a small break. The afternoon will see some atmospheric mixing occur leading to a little sunshine, some heat, and a chance for pop-up showers and thunderstorms. The cold front sliding in will also help these storms develop. The afternoon storms will have some strength to them and that may lead to a few severe storms. Damaging wind gusts will be the highest threat. Other threats will be the usual heavy rainfall and lightning. Storms will dissipate overnight. Sunday looks to remain mostly dry, but there’s still a chance for a few showers to form. Each afternoon for the beginning of the week will have the ability for isolated thunderstorms. Higher pressure will scoot in after a second cold front for the middle of the week. This will bring in briefly cooler air with very nice conditions for the end of the week.
