Good Friday to one and all. It’s a more typical brand of air kicking in across the region for the final weekend of July, but changes are already showing up for next week. Those changes include an increasing threat for showers and storms, and another drop in temperatures.
Let’s begin with today. Temps will hit the 50s in several areas to begin our Friday, marking the 4th straight day with some lows in the 50s. That’s VERY hard to do for this time of year. Highs this afternoon will reach the 80-85 degree range for many.
Saturday will find temps in the middle 80s with a little more humidity showing up. That could spawn isolated showers and storms late in the day.
A better chance for storms kicks in on Sunday with temps deep into the 80s. This storm threat will then ramp up by Monday and Tuesday.
That will be accompanied by another round of cooler than normal through the start of August. Here’s the GFS:
After a bit of a rebound, the model sees another shot of cool behind that:
The GFS Ensembles have been all over this of late and continue to trend in the same
direction. Here’s the average temperature departure for the first 10 days of August:
Have a great final Friday of the month and take care.
