Good Wednesday, folks. As more and more kids head back to school, we are kicking off a pattern that features more and more cold fronts. The first front is right on top of the region today, with two more to follow in the coming days. That’s a pretty atypical pattern for this time of year.
Let’s start with today and roll forward. Scattered showers and storms will be around, especially early on in the day. This is ahead of the front that has better air coming in behind it later in the day.
Here are your tracking tools to keep you company:
The next front will then drop in here from the northwest late Thursday into Friday. This front look a little more active in terms of the thunderstorm action, but still isn’t washout material. Storms will fire up by Thursday evening and continue into Friday and there’s the chance for a few strong or severe storms.
Here’s the Thursday Severe Weather Outlook from the Storm Prediction Center:
Here’s the Friday risk area:
Once that gets out of the way, the weather for Saturday into the first part of Sunday looks really good as our front slows down to our south. That boundary may try to inch back to the north by late Sunday and Monday, touching off a few northwest to southeast moving thunderstorm clusters. This will be ahead of the next front set to arrive a few days later:
That will knock the temps back down for the middle and end of the week. Looking at the overall pattern, I highly doubt we make it through August without one more heat surge.
Have a wonderful Wednesday and take care.
