Good Wednesday, folks. After a few calm weather days, our overall pattern is about to get more active. This looks to carry us into the Labor Day weekend. That’s when some rain from the tropics gets involved.
We have a cold front dropping into the state Wednesday, and it’s likely to touch off scattered showers and thunderstorms. That’s especially true for the afternoon and evening. A few of the storms could be strong, with locally heavy rains.
Some leftover showers and storms will hang around Thursday as highs come down a few degrees.
A couple of showers and thunderstorms might fire up again later Friday. The European Model shows the concern for some of the high school football games:
Those look rather scattered at this point, but it’s certainly worth watching.
I have no changes for Commonwealth Stadium on Saturday as the Cats kick off the football season. There’s a chance of isolated showers and storms, with the temperature in the low 80s at kickoff. It continues to appear that heavy rain-producing showers and storms will arrive by Sunday. That’s when a tropical plume of moisture tries to get into the mix from the southwest:
Have a great day and take care.
