Saturday 6/22 Forecast Discussion

It was another hot one out there today with very little in the way of relief in the form of scattered afternoon showers and thunderstorms. Any that did form were confined to the extreme Southern fringe of the viewing area and the Gulf Coast. Our rain chances go up a little bit for tomorrow as some more moisture in the atmosphere, a piece of upper level energy and daytime heating come together. We should see a few storms spark off by the early afternoon hours, and those will continue through the evening, then fizzle out by the time the sun goes down. With that said, I still do think that many of us will stay dry tomorrow. A very typical summertime forecast continues into the workweek, with a slight chance of afternoon showers each day. By the time we go into Friday, and especially the weekend, some upper level disturbances should drop a front in here and bring us some better organized thunderstorms. Some of those could be on the strong side, but it's still way too far out to determine storm mode and coverage for the weekend.
