Good Morning Folks! A general tenth of an inch fell across the region yesterday and we expect a bit more rain today as instability increases across the region. Temps will continue to be above normal and this will week will be somewhat miserable for folks who are not used to temps in the upper 80’s, coupled with high humidity levels (mid 70’s – upper 80’s today). Today we will find passing clouds overhead throughout the day, accompanied by pop up showers and thunderstorms, some of which could produce heavy rain with rainfall totals ranging from a tenth up to a half inch. These showers and storms will continue into the evening hours and eventually fizzle out before 11pm with temps dipping into the low – mid 60’s depending upon elevation.
Tuesday offers a bit more sunshine than today as we wait on a front to cross the region late in the day, more toward the evening hours. With this in mind temps will once again soar to the mid 70’s – upper 80’s and with increasing moisture levels due to the approaching front and southerly flow, it will be extremely muggy outside bringing heat indexes into the low 90’s. Expect isolated showers and thunderstorms past midday, but the majority of the action will arrive past sunset with scattered showers pushing into the region sometime after midnight. Temps overnight will settle into the low – mid 60’s once again and another tenth – half inch of rain is possible through sunrise Wednesday.
