Summer Sizzle Before More Storms

Good Tuesday, weather weenies. Meteorological summer is about to wrap up in a few days and Mother Nature is going out with a little sizzle that will give way to thunderstorms. These rounds of storms will increase later in the week and may hang around through the Labor Day Weekend.

Highs today are back into the upper 80s for many, with some low 90s showing up in the west, especially. The oppressive humidity will make it feel much hotter than that. Isolated showers and storms will also be noted today.

A cold front moves toward the state on Wednesday, bringing an uptick in the amount of showers and storms. That front then slows down and hangs around our region for the rest of the week and into, at least, part of Labor Day Weekend. The end result is rounds of showers and storms…

Locally heavy rains will be a good bet during this time and that may have an impact on some holiday weekend activities.

As this happens, we need to watch the tropics because some action is very likely to develop. We are heading toward the climatological peak in the hurricane season and the pattern is going to become conducive for activity.

The tropics will obviously play a big role in the overall weather pattern across the country in the coming weeks. Still, it’s interesting to note how the CFS starts September with above normal temps, then goes below normal my the middle of the month…

Let’s get back to where we are today and track a storm or two…

Have a great Tuesday and take care.
