Monday, August 19 Forecast Discussion

Clouds have finally broken a bit for us across the area this afternoon, and we are going to keep those breaks around overnight and again for us tomorrow. Rain showers have been few and far between, and that trend will also continue into the middle of the week.

After Wednesday, high pressure aloft will start to build in. This ridge is going to start to cut an end to our rain chances, but as of right now, it does not look like we will drastically warm up as we move into the weekend. We will be situated on the eastern side of the ridge, and our winds look to mostly be out of the east, which will prevent us from tapping into the warmer air off to our west.

Highs will return to 90 by Friday and remain a degree or two either side of the 90 degree mark this weekend and into the start of next week. As this ridge builds into the weekend, it looks like rain chances will be scarce as we should be just underneath the ridge enough to have sinking air override any attempts at storms to rise.
