The Start of a Prolonged Active Pattern

Good morning, everybody! We hope that you are having a wonderful week so far! If so, we hope that today’s post won’t be too much of a downer. Starting today, a trend consisting of showers and storms will return and remain for longer than we’d prefer.

You, after reading today’s post…(GIPHY)

Outlook for the Work Week

For the rest of the work week, chances of showers and storms will remain in the forecast due to a band of low pressure systems in our region. For today only, cloud cover will be overbearing thanks to an approaching cold front. Otherwise, the sunshine will be predominant in the sky.

For today and tomorrow, showers and storms will be widespread. For the final day of the work week, chances will be substantially lower, being scattered. Our main concern will be the potential for heavy rainfall, gusty winds (up to 20 miles per hour), and marginally severe hail. For live updates, follow our Twitter.

For each weekday, temperatures will peak in the upper 80’s and drop to the lower 70’s. On top of that, the humidity will be more than noticeable, making it feel as if temperatures are in the lower 90’s. Therefore, if you are out and about, make sure you stay hydrated!

The Weekend and Beyond

For the weekend, this trend will carry on, though a stationary front will be the one to blame as it looks to park right over our state. This will keep chances of precipitation alive, remaining scattered. Much to our dismay, this will persist into the new week, as the precipitation outlook shows above normal precipitation.
