Very active August setup continues

Good Sunday to one and all. A huge upper level low continues to work across the Ohio Valley, bringing the chance for additional scattered showers and storms. This setup is part of the overall active pattern that keeps showing up. It’s been with us since late winter and shows no signs of letting up.

I mentioned the big upper level low spinning nearby. This animation shows our closed low and looks nothing like the middle of August:

What does that mean for today’s weather? A mix of sun and clouds will be noted with the chance for scattered showers and storms going up. You know the drill, some of the storms may be strong and put down torrential rains.

Scattered showers and thunderstorms will continue to develop in that scenario and those may very well be around for the first day of school on Wednesday.

Rain chances will then ramp up even more for the middle and end of the week as that next system wanders across our part of the world. Watch how the storm threat keeps going all the way into the following week:

This likely introduces a deep trough across the eastern half of the country that could very well deliver a nice shot of early fall air:

As usual, the blog is all set to be your one stop shop for storm tracking:

Make it a great Sunday and take care.
