Goodbye Sunshine

Clouds are taking over, and there will be showers and storms including heavy pockets of rainfall for this Monday.  Some of the afternoon storms could become strong. While most areas will receive between .50″-1.0″ of rain, there is the potential of 1-2″ of rain where these downspours/storms occur.  A light breeze from the south-southeast will be joined by cooler-than-average high temperatures in the lower 70s.

Tuesday and Wednesday will be the result of a cutoff, upper level low. This will mean mainly dry morning conditions followed by showers and storms filling-in as the days progress into the afternoon hours. It appears that there will be lots of clouds, but peeks of sunshine can also be expected.  Tuesday will be on the cool side with a northwest/northeast wind.  Thermometers will only make it into the upper 60s to near 70F.  Wednesday will show improvement in the temperature category as we head into the upper 70s.

The upper level low begins to fill-in and lift as Thursday makes its arrival. So, there will be a sun/cloud combo with a very small chance of an afternoon spot storm depending on how quickly the low heads northeast.  Highs will be reaching the 80s again…lower 80s to be exact!

Friday will be even warmer in the upper 80s to near 90F with a chance of storms arriving during the evening hours.

This weekend will end the month of June and kick-off the month of July.  Saturday and Sunday will be partly cloudy with a slight chance of few late-day showers/storms. It’s tough to time out day 6 & 7 with this progressive upper level wind flow. Highs will be very warm both days in the upper 80s to lower 90s.

Overall, there is at least a slim chance of a storm every single day for the next 7 days. It’s a tough forecast to completely rule out a spot storm, but in terms of staying dry, I’d say the best chance this week will be Thursday.
