More of the same this week

Good Monday, everyone. Our brand new week is off and running with warmer air, more humidity and… Hmmm… I seem to be forgetting something. Oh yea, the threat for showers and thunderstorms. This stuff will  be isolated today, before becoming much more widespread as the week wears on.

High temps today will reach the low and mid 80s for many areas with a few scattered showers and storms possible.

The threat for showers and thunderstorms will increase later Tuesday into Wednesday as the action starts to come in from the northwest. You can see that showing up nicely on the NAM:

NAM 1

We will need to keep an eye out for the possibility of some of these storms becoming strong or severe.

These will become efficient rain producers and that isn’t a good thing considering how wet our ground is. This has the look of a setup that can produce some local high water issues. Most areas will pick up another inch of rain before the week is over and some folks may see much higher totals.

The pattern for the end of the week into the weekend will feature a closed off low pressure spinning across the region:

GFS 2

That will likely produce additional rounds of showers and storms. This will also keep our temps way down compared to normal.

The tropics are also coming to life this week. Tropical Storm Chantal has developed and may head toward Florida.

Make it a great Monday and take care.
