Anyhow, yesterday was a beautiful day! Low humidity, nice breeze at times, and lots of sunshine. Today should be the same, but there are those pesky clouds. They will interfere for awhile this morning. Hopefully moving away this afternoon. Regardless of what they do, it will be another great day of low humidity and comfortable temps for early August.
As we move into the middle of August (where is time going?) already, we will see a major increase in humidity and the chances for heavy thunderstorms/showers on a daily basis. Right now Wed/Wed night, Saturday and Sunday look like the days with the best chances for it to rain. It would not be a surprise to see a 2”+ of rain widespread throughout our area by next Monday.
It will also be getting much warmer. Temps will make a run toward 90 starting Wed and continuing through Saturday. If it were not for the tropical flow of moisture out of the Gulf and the area of disturbed weather just off the Florida coast, we would be talking about a heat wave with temps soaring to the mid-90s. But no dice this time around. Yet, with temps around 90 and high humidity it will feel hot enough.
This whole mess of humidity and tropical moisture will move away early next week, however there will not be any real cooling. It will still be very warm early next week, just less humid to start.
Points for Next 7 Days:
- Pleasant Days: Today – Tuesday. Low humidity, and warm temps.
- More Humid: Humidity returns Wed and stays with us through the weekend. The humidity may peak this weekend as tropical surge really comes north.
- Chance Thunderstorms: Thunderstorms/showers likely Wed. Still chance Thu and Fri, but look likely again Sat afternoon and Sunday. Any shower/storm could contain torrential downpours with risk for flash flooding, esp. in more urban areas.
Today: 82. Partly to mostly sunny. Pleasant. Low humidity.
Tuesday: 85. Mostly sunny. Warmer.
