Thursday afternoon...

Rain continues to exit the area. Looks like most spots in the viewing area received between 0.5" and 1.5" of rain with this event.

Nice, dry airmass getting set to move in. As I am typing this, the dewpoint in Knoxville is down to 59 and Boone at 57.

Heat and humidity are probably my least favorite weather elements, so I am going to love the weather tomorrow and the weekend. It will be beautiful with highs in the mid 80s and very low humidity values...considering it is July.

I mentioned yesterday that I thought some communities had a shot of dipping into the upper 50s for a low this weekend. I am sticking to that even though model data continues to indicate lower 60s. I still think some backyards have a shot of dipping into the upper 50s, probably Saturday morning. Interesting to note that a few places in Wisconsin dropped down to 37 degrees this morning....pretty incredible for July 6!

Looks like we will be back in a much more muggy pattern again as next work week progresses. Along with that will come the chances for mainly afternoon showers and storms.

It seems several computer models want to develop some sort of low pressure off of the Georgia or South Carolina coast, then lift if northeastward just off of the Atlantic Seaboard. Seems plausible, but I don't think it is much to get too excited about just yet.

About the only other thing I can think of to watch for in the tropics is the Gulf of Mexico. The same frontal boundary that is moving through here will stall out in the northern Gulf. Often times, if conditions are right, a weak tropical system can from from a decaying frontal boundary like that. So, possibly the Gulf might be something to watch this weekend.
