The weather this week will be quite typical for July as head into the middle of the month. This translates into lots of sunshine with daytime highs in the middle 80s for the most part, which is exactly what our long-term average temperatures show for this time of year. A chance for a shower or a storm remains for Tuesday, but then dry weather returns for Wed and Thu. A chance for a shower or a storm will return for Fri, Sat, and Sun.
The idea of having an upper level system stall over our area and give us some appreciable rain midweek is not going to come to fruition. I was incorrect in that idea, as is the idea of the EURO model wanting to return high heat to our area next weekend.
Details for each day are as follows:
Today: Sunny. Dry. Beautiful.
Tuesday: Sunny with chance for a shower or a storm in the afternoon. More humid.
Wednesday: Sunny. Slightly cooler and less humid.
Thursday: Sunny. Dry. Beautiful.
Friday: Mostly sunny. Chance for a shower or a storm. More humid.
Saturday: Mostly sunny. Chance for a shower or a storm. Humid.
We have very flat ridging across the nation right now, which is the result of the major ridge that brought us the heat wave, being flattened. This ridge will try to rebuild in this week, but it will not succeed. It will by the middle of the following week (after July 15) build itself over the western US and a significant trough develops in the east. This will lead to a wetter, more humid pattern, but also cooler.
Again, I do not see consecutive 90 degree days for us through the rest of the month.
