We are looking warm and dry for Tuesday as our quiet pattern rolls on through at least Friday. Thunderstorms are a definite possibility this weekend with a chance for severe weather and another round of moderate/heavy rainfall.
This morning we have no issues as our skies are mostly clear with temperatures running in the 50s and low 60s. Not many changes to the pattern today, as we’ll see mostly sunny skies and slightly warmer temperatures as we’ll be near normal in the low to mid 80s. A returning south wind will start a slow increase in humidity that will carry through the week.
High pressure is determined to keep us dry this week, although there will be a few storms systems nipping at our heels that will likely bring partly cloudy skies, but nothing that would lead me to believe we’ll see any rain.
We may see a chance for a few scattered showers Friday ahead of a strong upper-level disturbance that will arrive this weekend. Ahead of this, we may see temperatures flirt with 90 degrees Thursday/Friday.
Look for rain and thunderstorms to increase late Saturday, Saturday night, and into Sunday morning. At this point, it looks like we will see a potential round of strong/severe storms late Saturday or overnight. The SPC has us in their long-range outlook.
We may also see another 1 to 2 inches of rain which will keep our lakes and rivers that are in minor to moderate flood stage running high.
