A strong summer system will keep our weather unusually active but also mainly cooler as we transition from July into August. Strong storms and heavy downpours will be a significant threat through the evening hours as a low pressure system moves through along a stalled front. A flash flood watch remains in effect until midnight. On Saturday the upper part of this system will move through with cool, breezy and wet weather. The threat of strong storms will push off to the east but heavy rain could still be an issue. Highs on Saturday will likely be 10° or more below average!
The first week of August will be unusually comfortable, with lower than average air temps and dew points. In fact it could end up as the coolest week of the month…as pretty much every day will feature below-average temps. There could be a few showers and storms around as well…especially Sunday evening into Monday…but most of next week looks mainly dry. By the following weekend we’ll be sneaking back to late-summer ‘normal’.
