To start ... it should be another beautiful day today, but what's with these clouds hanging around? Not what was expected. Although it is a rather narrow band, but we happen to be in that band.
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.
