A few storms for Election Day

Good Tuesday, everyone. It’s Election Day in the Commonwealth with storms and steamy temps on the weather ballot. The two are running neck and neck entering today, with storms likely coming away with a small victory.

Those scattered storms may, just like the past week, be locally strong or severe. Here’s the updated Severe Weather Outlook from the Storm Prediction Center:

Heavy rains may also cause a few high water issues to develop from time to time. That said, it’s not going to rain all day.

A cold front pushes east of us on Wednesday, allowing for a much better brand of air to slide in here for a couple days. Temps and humidity levels both come way down through Thursday, so let’s soak that up.

Another system dives in here by the weekend, bringing the potential for more showers and thunderstorms. At the same time, a tropical system is trying to develop in the Gulf of Mexico.

Another system approaches the region from the northwest by the Memorial Day weekend. That will bring an increase in showers and storms, as we watch the Gulf of Mexico. That’s where something tropical is likely to develop and it may directly or indirectly┬áinfluence our weather.

Watch how the models are very stormy and unsettled all the way through next week:



Our incredibly soggy 2018 shows no signs of letting up!
