A Few More Storms Wrap Up July

Good Wednesday and welcome to the last day of the month. We are wrapping up July with a few showers and storms going up, with temps a smidge cooler than we should be for this time of year. The scattered storms potential looks to roll into the first few days of August, as we wait for a stronger front and cooler push of air next week.

Today’s showers and storms will be much more prominent across central and eastern parts of the state. Just like yesterday,some of these storms may put down a lot of water in a short amount of time, leading to a local flash flood threat. I will have your tracking toys in a bit.

The weather for Thursday and Friday looks VERY similar, with the eastern half of the state seeing the bulk of the action. The models continue to hint at more heavy rains during this time…

Remember, models don’t handle thunderstorms very well, so some areas will likely come in much higher than that through Friday.

The weekend looks mainly dry, but we still can’t shake a storm or two as temps are fairly pleasant for this time of year.

It’s also at this point when the tropics may become more of a player in the overall pattern. One system continues to spin toward the southeastern seaboard, but the one behind it out in the Atlantic has the best chance at becoming a storm…

All of this is happening as a deep trough looks to dive into the eastern half of the country. How those two interact will be interesting to watch. The latest GFS shows the trough diving in here with cooler air and keeping the storm off the east coast…

That could make for  a very interesting weather map!

As I wrap up this post, here are your storm tracking tools of the trade…

Have a great final day of the month and take care.
