Steamy and Sometimes Stormy

Good Saturday, everyone. We have a serious case of August steam pushing into the region and it’s bringing a few thunderstorms along for the ride. Some of those may show up out there today, but the biggest threat comes our way as we head into next week.

It’s a pattern skewed warmer than normal and it’s likely to feature frequent thunderstorms over the next few weeks, at least.

Let’s begin with today. Temps are in the upper 80s and low 90s, but a cluster of thunderstorms may have something to say about that. These storms won’t impact everyone, but should roll from west to east through the early afternoon. The storms will likely weaken the farther east they get…

Sunday is another hot and humid day with lows of high 80s and low 90s showing up. The sweat factor is super high because the humidity levels are going to be way up there. I can’t rule out a storm or two going up at some point.

Monday looks very similar in terms of temps and sky condition as we get ready for storms to increase by Tuesday and Wednesday. This increase in storms will happen as moisture returns from the Gulf of Mexico and combines with a system dropping in from the northwest…

That will knock the temps back down for the second half of the week.

The pattern beyond that continues to look fairly active..

While I continue to think the pattern skews warmer than normal through the rest of the month and into September, the latest Ensembles are trending in the opposite direction for the final week of August…

I dare the weather to make a liar out of me! 🙂 Certainly won’t be the first time.

Have a great Saturday and take care.
