Tropical rains to increase

Good Sunday to one and all. We are putting the wraps on the weekend with an increase in showers and thunderstorms. This action will continue to ramp up in the days ahead as the remnants of Hurricane Barry roll across the region.

As always, let’s begin with today. A weak cold front is dropping in from the north as offshoot tropical moisture pushes in from the south. These two will combine forces for some heavy rainfall in a few spots. Not everyone gets rain today, but some hefty totals are possible for those who do. Here are your tracking tools for the day:

What’s left of Barry rolls this way from Monday through early Thursday. This won’t be constant rains, but a general 1″-3″ will fall across the state during this time. Higher amounts will be possible for some areas and those are the areas that can experience flash flooding issues.

Humidity levels will be sky high, but high temps come way down.

Once the remnants of Barry slide to our east, a surge of heat is building into the plains and Midwest. This setup can sometimes produce thunderstorm clusters riding the ridge into our region. Some of the models are hinting at this potential next weekend:

Hot temps are likely to surge in here into next week and could give us a nice little run of real deal heat before a trough tries to dig into the eastern part of the country.

Have a great day and take care.
