Heavy Rain and Strong Storms Possible

Good Sunday, everyone. A potent storm system is diving in here from the northwest, meeting up with moisture surging in from the south. This hookup will lead to showers and thunderstorms blowing up, with some strong storms and very heavy rains possible.

Scattered storms will increase today, but the main action develops this evening and lasts into Monday morning…

This setup can develop some big time rain producing storms across our region. The greatest threat for that appears to be along and south of Interstate 64. This is the area where 1″-3″ of rain may fall and the models are all over that potential…

Given how much rain many of these areas have picked up in recent weekend, the flash flood threat is increased. Keep an eye out on those waterways.

Track today’s action…


Showers and storms will slowly move away from the region on Monday, with MUCH cooler air coming in behind it. Temps on Tuesday will be from 70-75, with cooler air waiting for Wednesday.

The GFS has Wednesday morning deep into the 40s for many…

With some clouds and scattered showers coming in from an upper level low, Wednesday afternoon numbers on that model are only in the 60s for many…

The cooler than normal air will take us through the rest of the week into next week, but won’t be nearly as cool as the above maps.

A big warmup is waiting in the wings for the middle of the month. Don’t be surprised if we aren’t talking about the first widespread 90 degree temps of the summer by then. Don’t worry, just like the entire pattern, it’s transient and shouldn’t just settle in for the long haul. 😉

Make it  a great Sunday and take care.
