As you can see from the above map of the accumulated precipitation across the US over the last 30 days, the nations center has been wet with the coasts dries. Notice the driest in California, Nevada, Arizona and then parts of New England! To our east it is much drier than we had been. Monday;s rains made a big difference for our area. But the East as a whole is drier than usual. Will it change? Well, below is the expected precipitation over the next 7 days.
Well, not a lot of change! Wet in the center and drier on the coasts. Now the situation in the Southern Plains could grow pretty serious. Oklahoma City has already had over 14" of rain this month with several more likely through Monday! We know what too much rain is like.
The main point? Pattern is the same for now.
Sunday: 80. Sunny and beautiful. Cool start but warm ending.
Monday: 85. Sunny and beautifully warm. More humid.
Tuesday - Thursday: 86. Very warm and humid. Chance for showers and thunderstorms.
Friday: 84. Mostly sunny. Humid still. Slight risk of a shower or storm.
Saturday - Sunday: 84-88. Very warm with cold front passing through. Showers and storms will be likely.
