Despite the forecast for a few showers and storms, this afternoon remained mainly quiet, with storms staying just out of our region to the north, east and south. However, this luck may not hold through the rest of the weekend as activity will likely pick up again Sunday and Monday, especially during the afternoon hours. Otherwise, we are going to be in a fairly warm, humid and consistent pattern for the next several days. We are not specifically outlooked for severe storms the next couple of days but a few strong ‘pulse’ type storms are likely.
From about Monday thru Friday we’ll stay with a fairly consistent pattern with light southerly flow at all levels…in between an upper ridge southeast and a weak upper trough to the west. This will keep us warm and humid with a daily chance of mostly afternoon thunderstorms. By the weekend the pattern looks to shift just enough to bring some drier air in from the north, so we may be a bit cooler and less showery by Saturday and Sunday…perhaps..
