Friday, August 2 Forecast Discussion

A beautiful day outside as temperatures have made it to the lower 90s early this afternoon. The good news is that dew points have dropped a bit, making it not as humid, but that is going to change as we move into the weekend. High pressure is attempting to build in, but it will be a couple of days before it has full control of the area.

A thunderstorm complex is expected to move across the south central part of the country tomorrow afternoon, and this may allow a storm or two to creep into the extreme northern parts of the viewing area, but I expect just about all of us to remain dry. The better chances arrive on Sunday through Tuesday as a cold front stalls to our north, which will provide enough of a focusing mechanism to get some afternoon storms going each afternoon Sunday through Tuesday.

By Wednesday, high pressure aloft centers over top of us. This should end rain chances for us and also usher in very warm air with highs in the mid 90s to close out the week.

Of some note, the remnants of Dorian are just off the east coast of Florida, and may potentially redevelop for a day or two before it gets absorbed into the jet stream and sent out to sea.
