Somewhat Unsettled, Cool Week

With considerable cloudiness today, expect scattered showers and thunderstorms. Coverage will be a bit reduced on Tuesday, perhaps increase again on Wednesday, down again Thursday, and then higher again for Friday and the upcoming weekend. Did you follow that bouncing ball? Keep the umbrella handy this week, but it’s not going to rain every day nor all the time. Perhaps the bigger story will be the rather cool temperatures this week for the mid-part of August.

Forecast Discussion

A wave of low pressure will track along a frontal boundary today as it heads to the southeast. The front will stall just south of our forecast area pretty much all week. Scattered showers and thunderstorms today will be more hit-or-miss on Tuesday.

Another wave tracking to our south on Wednesday might result in another uptick of activity, particularly along and south of I-40.

After a relative dearth in showers and thunderstorms on Thursday, the Bermuda High gets re-established by this weekend, so temperatures should tick warmer, with good afternoon production of showers and thunderstorms.

Temperatures will be on the cool side all week, warming up some over the weekend.
