Hot today. Warm Sat and Sun. Staying warm to possible very hot by later next week.
Pattern: A ridge is dominating our weather. We are on the NE side which often has rounds of thunderstorms, and it does but we are too far SW for any widespread activity. In fact if we don't get rain today, we may stay dry through much of next week. There will be a chance for a shower/storm for next Mon-Thu, but with the ridge being dominant, dry is the operative word to go with. This ridge could lead to hot/very hot conditions by late next week: lots of sun, drier ground = heat.
Today: Mostly sunny. Hot. Chance for shower or storm. Breeze at times. 94.
Independence Day: Sun and clouds. Warm. 86. Less humid.
Sunday: Mostly sunny. Warm. Increasing humidity. 86.
Monday: Mostly sunny. Warm. Chance for a shower/storm. 87
Tuesday: Mostly sunny. Warm. Chance for a shower/storm. 89
Wednesday: Mostly sunny. Hot. Chance for a shower/storm. 91
Thursday: Mostly sunny. Hot. Chance for a shower/storm. 93
Friday: Mostly sunny. Hot. Chance for a shower/storm. 94
The heat could peak next Saturday, but also end that day. Time will tell. A warm/hot July is on the way. Probably dry too.
Happy Birthday America!
The morning showers/storms worked out well. Not so sure about the late day or overnight activity.
Based on the set-up right now, any storms will occur before 8 pm. It is possible that we stay dry the rest of the day. It will be warm and humid.
Before we get to those details, today (Friday) will be a very nice summer day. Warm, yet low or comfortable humidity. Then a warm front approaches tonight. This will likely be accompanied by some showers and a thunderstorm or two. The further north you live, the greater the chance. South of Lebanon? Not likely to see anything. North of Pottsville? Likely to see rain. In between? Could go either way.
Regardless of rain or not, the showers/storms should be out of here by 8 am Sat. Then a warmer, more humid day is in storm. Showers/storms are again likely late in the day or first part of the night (not until after 5 pm). Some could be quite strong to severe. Winds and hail being the largest threats. The amount of sunshine will be key here.
After this there could still be a shower on Sunday, but nothing to noteworthy. Mon - Thu looks rather quiet and pleasant. Maybe a shower/storm midweek.
Friday: Mostly sunny. Some high clouds. Pleasantly warm. 81.
Saturday: Shower/storm very early; partly to mostly sunny. Warm. Humid. Showers/storms very late/overnight. 87.
Sunday: Partly to mostly sunny. Chance for a shower. Becoming less humid. 84.
Monday - Tuesday: Partly to mostly sunny. 82.
Wednesday: Partly to mostly sunny. Chance for a shower. 82.
Thursday: Partly to mostly sunny. Chance for a shower. 83.
Best chance for showers and storms is today (Fri) and Sat. There still could be a few around for Sun and Mon, but nothing to worry about.
Any shower or storm will be capable of heavy downpours, as well as being slow moving. They look to be rather small in size, but the slow motion could allow them to drop .5" - 1" on any given location, while 10 miles away receives much less or nothing. This pattern looks to continue through a good portion of next week: Warm, humid with sun/clouds and shower/storm chances esp. Tue/Wed with a cool front moving through.
Rest of Friday: Partly sunny. Warm. Humid. Showers/storms likely. 83.
Saturday: Partly sunny. Warm. Humid. Showers/storms likely. 83.
Sunday: Partly to mostly sunny. Warm. Humid. Chance for a shower/storm. 84.
Monday: Partly to mostly sunny. Warm. Humid. Chance for a shower/storm. 87.
Tuesday: Partly sunny. Warm. Humid. Showers/storms likely late. 90.
Wednesday: Partly sunny. Warm. Humid. Showers/storms likely early. 83.
Thursday: Mostly sunny. Warm. Less humid. 83.
From my last post: "**Thu/Fri could change if SE disturbed weather shifts north into area. If it does, we get wetter and much cooler. At this time I doubt it, but it's worth noting the forecast could change a bit for those two days."
Well, they shall change. The area of disturbed weather is coming north. Although it is weakening, after messing up numerous vacations to the beach over the last several days. It will now try to make us a little wetter and cloudier.
I really don't expect a lot of rain. But any shower or storm could be heavy. The system will move north, then start to fall apart over our area. This means a more scattered pattern of showers/storms rather than an organized area. Even if you read a lot of chances for showers/storms over the next few days, do not be alarmed. Much of the time will be dry.
It will also become more humid.
Thursday: Partly sunny. Chance for a shower or storm. 78.
Friday: Partly sunny. Chance for showers and storms. 81.
Saturday: Partly to mostly sunny. Chance for a shower/storm. 83.
Sunday: Mostly sunny. Chance for a shower/storm. 85.
Monday: Mostly sunny. Chance for a shower/storm. 88.
Tuesday: Partly to mostly sunny. Chance for showers/storms. 88.
Wednesday: Sun and clouds. Chance for a shower/storm. 82.
Got a little hotter today than I first thought, but the idea was right: warm sunshine. Now come the return of the stickies. Yes, it will be much more humid Wed. And with that comes a chance for some storms, esp. overnight as the cold front moves through.
Some of the storms could be strong to severe. The main threat is to our west, and the severity of these storms should lessen as they come east. However, they could produce some very heavy rainfall. We are used to that.
Thursday could still feature a shower or storm, as it grows less humid. Still warm. Friday looks rather nice, but then things slowly worsen over the weekend. Sat decent, Sun ok, but starting Mon, things could get wet.
Here are the details:
Wednesday: Hot. Humid. Sun and clouds. Chance for a storm before 6 pm then likely between 6 pm and 6 am overnight. Heavy rain, strong winds possible with storm. 88.
Thursday: Left over shower or two. Partly to mostly sunny. 82.
Friday: Partly to mostly sunny. 80. Slight chance for light shower.
Saturday: Partly to mostly sunny. 75. Slight chance for light shower
Sunday: Partly sunny. 73. Chance for showers late/overnight.
Monday: Mostly cloudy. 70. Chance for showers.
Tuesday: Mostly cloudy. 70. Chance for showers.
