Thursday, July 11 Forecast Discussion

It has been a rainy day across the area with over an inch of rain for most of us. Outside of a stray shower as our cold front passes, we will remain dry through the overnight and through our Saturday. Drier air is arriving to our northwest and should keep rain chances at bay for the first part of the weekend.

On Sunday, rain chances spike as an upper level low passes overhead moving from east to west. As we move onto the western side, we may see enough moisture return and lift to cause some showers and a storm or two. Rain chances then drop off after Sunday back to more of the pop-up variety through the rest of next week.

Temperatures are a little tricky to forecast, especially for tomorrow, as the amount of cloud cover and evaporation rate will determine how warm we get. Because of the heavy rainfall today, I do not expect us to clear the 80s, but I think we should easily reach the upper 80s with a spot or two that hasn't seen as much rain reaching 90.

In the tropics, a part of the remnant of Chantal is moving over the Bahamas and could potentially develop/re-develop into something over the next couple of days. There is little to no chance we see anything out of this tropical wave, but if you have plans for the Bahamas or the Atlantic seaboard, you will want to at least keep an eye on it through the weekend.
