Mainly Wet and Humid Today

Good morning to you! Welcome back to wxornotBG. Chances are, you already know what today’s forecast is going to be, considering there’s been a trend. If you guessed a chance for showers and guaranteed humidity, you’re right!

Ladies, let’s wear hats today to hide the frizz… (Giphy)

What to Expect Today

Today, there’s a chance for showers and storms in the morning hours to noon. So, expect the cloud coverage of this morning to clear up once those are out of the way. We will have temperatures that make it up to the mid-80’s and a calm wind to accompany them throughout the day.

As shown in the graphic above, the rainfall amounts we can expect today vary from 0.01 to 0.10 inches. Even though the flood watch expired this morning, it’s still important to be cautious when driving on slippery roads.

Did you know?

For the United States of America, the record for rainfall in a 24-hour span is 43.00” (1,092 mm) reported from Alvin, Texas on July 25-26, 1979 during Tropical Storm Claudette.

That’s 430 times more than what we expect for WABBLES today! Can you imagine?

Another Round of Moisture

Like we’ve seen every day so far this week, the moisture content in our area will remain higher than we’d prefer. In a way, you can wear the air today if you spend any time outside. Unfortunately, the same goes for tomorrow and into the weekend.

For more context, below is a water vapor image produced by the GOES-16 satellite. Generally, whites and greens indicate moisture, whereas yellows indicate the opposite.

As you can see, that moist air mass has began to move out of the WABBLES vicinity. However, it’s still rather present and there’s a possibility that the other over Missouri will be headed our way. We’ll keep you updated.

That’s all for today! We hope you have a great one! Don’t forget to follow us on other social media platforms (Twitter // Facebook // Instagram).
