More afternoon storms expected on Wednesday
A front stalls bringing more storm chances this week.
A front will stall near or region tonight and this will bring more chance of rain and storms through the rest of the week. The exact location of the front will tell how many showers and storms develop each day. This front also brings in some”cooler” air. It will likely break our streak of 90 degree days by Thursday. A low pressure system will ride along the front keeping a chance of showers and storms going into the weekend.
Storms will fade this evening and we will see partly cloudy skies overnight. Lows linger in the 60s and 70s.
The frontal boundary should be near our region on Wednesday. This will deliver a better chance of scattered showers and storms. Many models are indicating isolated storm activity for locations South of 460. Highs look to be a bit cooler with 80s in the mountains and lower 90s to the east.
THURSDAY & FRIDAY
As the front stalls to the south, several models are suggesting a return to more seasonable temperatures. There still remains uncertainty on where exactly the front will stall. Some models have it overhead which would lead to prolonged storm chances into the weekend. Highs will likely drop back into the 80s area-wide.
We’ll continue to see a mix of sun and clouds through the weekend with highs holding in the mid to upper 80s. Scattered showers and thunderstorms will also be likely each afternoon.
The National Hurricane Center is expecting Tropical Cyclone 9 to develop into a Tropical Storm Isaias (ees-ah-EE-ahs) tonight or on Wednesday. This will be a system to watch as the forecast path brings the storm into Florida by next week. This forecast track will change over the coming days, but any landfall in the Southeast could bring tropical moisture to our region next wee.
