Irma’s gusty showers continue

Good Wednesday, everyone. What’s left of Irma continues to drift into the Ohio Valley, bringing gusty rain to much of the region. These showers will continue to press through into Thursday.

Here’s a breakdown of the forecast:

  • Showers are fairly widespread Wednesday and will be slow-movers.
  • Most areas pick up another half-inch or so of rain.
  • Winds won’t be as gusty as Tuesday, but some 20 mph gusts are possible.
  • Leftover showers and a rumble of thunder will be with us into Thursday, but we should get in on many dry hours, too.
  • Highs Wednesday struggle to get into the low 60s. Thursday’s highs will be in the upper 60s to low 70s.

Here are your radars to track the spiraling band of showers:

The pattern from Friday through the weekend looks much, much better. Highs on Friday are in the 70s, with warmer air waiting for Saturday and Sunday. Highs will be near 80 degrees on both days.

This probably begins a much warmer-looking setup into the second half of September.

I’m also keeping a close eye on Jose out in the Atlantic. This storm is patiently circling around, waiting on Irma’s remnants to get out of the way. The GFS says this could be an east coast threat:

Make it a great day and take care.
