Humidity is Back in the Conversation

Good morning, WABBLES friends! Us here at wxornot hope you have had a splendid weekend thus far. We’ve crept back into the typical August weather pattern of feeling some pretty steamy temperatures under mostly sunny skies. The humidity is back in the conversation as we start the beginning of this week.

Slight Chance of Afternoon Storms

This morning we are experiencing a bit of fog and mist out over grass fields and roadways. Once this clears, the sunny, blue sky will emerge making for a nice afternoon. Temperatures will drive up to about 92 degrees, however, we don’t see the dew point really become a factor bringing humidity until tomorrow.

So, because the dew point will stay relatively low, the air will feel somewhat dry. As we approach the late afternoon, we have a slight chance to see a shower or storm. A warm front is approaching the region causing these rain chances out ahead of it.

There is a pretty strong moisture gradient just to the west of us which will play into which communities see rain and which don’t. If you live west of I-65, you have the greatest chances.

Tonight, the chance of showers remains and the low drops down to 70 degrees.

Humidity Sky Rockets Monday

On Monday, the humidity really sky rockets. I’m talking almost hitting the 80 degree mark folks. This will make it feel as if you were wearing the air. On top of this, the temperature will again reach the low 90s so it will not feel very comfortable out at all. I’d maybe even use the word oppressive.

The warm front will again bring the chance for showers and storms in the afternoon. We won’t see much in the way of precipitation totals from these showers…less than a quarter of an inch. Other than that, skies will be partly cloudy.

The low for Monday night drops only to about 72 degrees and we again stand the chance for storms.

The humidity and chance of storms stick around for the most of the work week.

That wraps up today’s post, folks. Thanks for reading! Be sure to follow our live weather feed on twitter, @wxornotBG, and also on Facebook. Stay cool!
