Looking Toward Early July

Good Tuesday, folks. We have a weak cold front dropping into the region today, touching off scattered showers and storms, and bringing more summer chill. This chill will give way to a normal brand of air later this week, but that looks to come with a stormy price as we roll into early July.

Today will feature a few showers to start, especially in the south. Temps will be way, way, way below normal with many areas staying 70-75.

Here’s regional radar to track the action…

Wednesday looks really good with highs in the 75-80 degree range for many areas with a mix of sun and clouds. That nice air will start to muggy up by the time we head into Thursday and Friday with temps back in the normal 80s.

With the increase in humidity will come an increase in scattered thunderstorms. The storm chances will really ramp up this weekend with a cold front moving in. The front should slow down and hang around through the 4th of July, keeping storm chances going…

Temps will be a little below normal during this time.

I mean to post this early, but the June run of the JAMSTEC seasonal model for the upcoming winter is in and shows a similar look as it did last month…

I think most would take their chances with colder than normal temps and above normal precipitation.

Have a great day and take care.

    Thanks Chris, A little more rain, we will take as long as we maintain the cool temperatures from time to time. As for the forth of July, that is one day where I want the weather to be hot and clear, so that home made ice cream taste a lot better. The forth of July in 1968 was so cool we all had jackets on, there is something wrong with that picture. I look up the JAMSTEC model, and they had winter outlook for 2016-2017 as a colder than normal winter, that did not come true. It was the most uneventful winter, compared to the two winters before that. Now, they are predicting 2017-2018 with a colder than normal winter for our area of the country? I can’t figure out their agenda on long range weather forecasting. I would think there would be a number of factors, like predicting ENSO, or the NAO, the AO, phases. I know they have lessen the chances for an El nino. Have a great day everyone.

    Sure wish this weather had happened one week later. This would be such a nice 4th of July with lots of sunshine, but not too hot for all the parade goers, and clear skies for fireworks.

    In my comment above, it’s fourth not forth, I hate it when I misspell words or in this case wrong contents. Have a great afternoon everyone, and enjoy this beautiful weather.

    I found another mistake, it’s contexts, not contents. If I plan on getting my masters degree in meteorology I better learn how to spell. LOL

    A high temperature of 77 today in Lexington with a dewpoint in the low 40’s. It felt and looked like an early October day. Will take this all summer long.
