Storms for the weekend

Good Friday, folks. We’ve made it to the final weekend of what has been a pretty pleasant June. As we head into the closing days of the month, the threat for thunderstorms will be on the increase as a front stalls out right on top of us.

Let us begin with our Friday before we hit the fast-forward button.

Highs today are low and mid 80s as a little more humidity. That humidity will lead to a scattered shower or storm going up:

A front drops into the region this weekend and slows down. Once it slows down, it may hang around into the first half of next week. That boundary will be the focusing mechanism to get showers and thunderstorms to come at us in clusters.

This is a setup that will last through much of next week:

Heavy rainfall and a few strong storms may show up during this time. Overall, we continue to see the potential for a wetter than normal pattern through the next 10 days. The EURO Ensembles show the above normal numbers during this time:

As far as temperatures go, this looks like a fairly normal setup for us into early July. As we have talked about several times, the heat is to our north. Here are the Euro Ensembles average temp anomalies for the first 7 days of July:

Have a fantastic Friday and take care.
