After 3 or 4 dry days, a much more unsettled pattern will be with us for the rest of the week (and even beyond.) For the next few days a weak upper trough will be slowly moving through the area from west to east....bringing occasional showers and thunderstorms. Rain chances look to peak Wednesday and Thursday...then back off a bit as we approach the weekend and the upper flow flattens out again. With clouds and showers for the next few days, daytime temps will be held mainly below average...but it will be increasingly muggy as dew points rise. Severe storms are not a huge threat...tho a few stronger storms look possible. Bigger issue may eventually be locally heavy downpours as we get wetter and wetter.
By Friday and into the upcoming weekend rain chances look to decrease...but won't completely disappear as a weak frontal boundary stalls over the region. Highs look to rebound back closer to average....thanks to more sunshine....but scattered thunderstorms may still be an issue at times. By the middle of next week we may finally be settling down and drying out a bit......though that is a relative term for the middle of August.
