Stormy changes for the week ahead

Good Sunday to one and all. We’re wrapping up the final weekend of July with fairly normal temperatures. As we head into the week ahead, the numbers come down, but rain chances go up. Things look a little stormy for the final few days of the month.

Let us begin with today and roll ahead. Highs are back into the mid and upper 80s with a mix of sun and clouds. We will watch for a scattered shower or storm to go up this afternoon and evening, but this doesn’t look very widespread.

Here are your radars to keep you company:

A system is dropping in from the northwest later Monday into Tuesday and will bring a much bigger increase in showers and storms, especially Tuesday:

Temps will come back down during this time and may not get out of the upper 70s for some on Tuesday. The trough digging in splits with one piece slowly working into the south. That may keep scattered showers and storms in the forecast through the week, with a possible uptick by the end of the week and next weekend.

That’s when a deeper trough looks to dig into much of the eastern half of the country. This has been pretty well advertised for a while and fits the overall pattern across the Northern Hemisphere. The Ensembles show what I’m talking about:

GFS Ensembles

Canadian Ensembles

European Ensembles

Have a sensational Sunday and take care.
