Ample sunshine again today as high pressure continues to influence our weather. As it continues to move to our southeast, we will see winds stay from the south and bring in more moisture and even warmer air. As moisture starts to return above the low readings we have been seeing so far, clouds will start to return late tonight and be with us into the weekend in the form of a morning low stratus deck and afternoon partly cloudy skies.
Highs will push 80 for Friday with all of us getting to 80 for Saturday and Sunday. Sunday will be a transition day as we will be warm and continuing to bring in humid air, making the cloud cover mostly cloudy through the day.
Monday is when our next storm system will arrive, and we are watching it closely for two reasons. First, as with any system this time of year, there is the potential this system could bring strong to severe storms to the area. We will definitely be warm and humid, but the dynamics or upper level energy as of now looks marginal so we will continue to watch it to see how the models handle it as we get closer. Secondly, it looks like this system, whether or not it produces severe weather, will be capable of dumping one to two inches of rainfall on Monday, which could re-aggravate flooding problems as rivers will still be running high by Monday.
The system will pull away Tuesday but still leave us with some lingering showers. We will be dry for Wednesday, but we are watching for our next system to head in our direction for next Thursday/Friday time frame which could mean more rain and potential more storms to worry about.
