Warm, muggy, scattered storms....

>> Friday, July 05, 2013

The upcoming forecast looks very much like July with warm, muggy conditions and daily chance of especially afternoon and evening showers and storms.

Many spots have seen big-time rain amounts over the past week or so, most recently in the mountains and foothills. So, there will remain a flooding threat with any areas of heavy rain.

A few storms could also produce gusty winds, and since the ground is so wet, it will be fairly easy for some trees to topple.

Here's today's video:


More of the same today...

We will continue to see showers and storms at times today, and a Flash Flood Watch remains in effect for much of the region.

Here's today's video:


Showers and storms continue...

Please see today's video for lots of weather details:

We remain sandwiched between a trough over the Mississippi Valley and a ridge out over the Atlantic. This places us in a favorable region for showers and storms, and that will remain the case for a couple more days.

The ground is saturated across the region, so any additional areas of moderate to heavy rain could fairly easily trigger flash flooding issues. Please pay attention to all flood products as they are issued, and remember... never drive into any areas where water is covering the road.

For the Fourth, I still expect scattered showers and storms with highs in the low and mid 80s.

As the ridging over the Atlantic builds overhead this weekend, it will greatly reduce our rain chances and increase our temps.


Wet pattern continues....

**I've been having some issues with the formatting of my videos over the past week. That's the reason videos have been sporadic. Hopefully I can get these issues resolved soon.**

An extremely wet and unsettled pattern remain in place. A huge ridge with tremendous heat is located out west with an upper level low of the Ohio Valley and mid Mississippi Valley. Then, there is another ridge out over the Atlantic.

This is a setup that just cranks the Gulf and Atlantic moisture into our region, and any small disturbance that ripples through can generate areas of heavy rain and storms.

Flash flooding issues will remain a concern over the next several days.

The ridging over the Atlantic finally noses westward into our region by the weekend, greatly reducing the rain chances and increasing the heat.
