Upper Low Brings Rain and Cool Temps

Good Sunday, folks. Our big upper level low is spinning right on top of the area today, bringing rounds of rain and cool temps. This spinning system will hang around a few more days, as temps continue to run cooler than normal. This is part of a larger overall pattern settling in for the second half of summer.

Today will be rather gloomy at times, with lots of clouds and showers around. A few thunderstorms will also be noted, and I’m wondering if a few of these can produce some small hail. We will also need to be on guard for an area of high rain totals that can cause some local high water issues. Track away…

All of this is coming from this highly anomalous upper level low spinning across the Ohio Valley…

I saw a tweet from one of the area NWS offices titled “Typical July Weather”. Ummm… I have no words for anyone who thinks this is a normal July pattern.

More showers and storms will be noted for Monday and Tuesday as our system still impacts the region…

Another cold front moves in by the end of the week unleashing another below normal temperature pattern for much of the country, with another following as we close July and enter into August. Check out the look from the European Ensembles…

We will also see additional rounds of showers and storms spread into the mix during this time.

The new run of the European Weeklies show our wet pattern continuing through, at least, Labor Day weekend. Check out the rainfall anomalies…

All that wet weather across the country comes with a cool price. Check out how much of the country averages cooler than normal for the same time period…

Have a great Sunday and take care.
