Wednesday, July 23 Forecast Discussion

Partly to mostly cloudy skies have dotted the landscape today with a few pop-up showers developing through the afternoon. Rain will collapse after sunset with tranquil conditions overnight. A cold front currently north of Mississippi and Alabama will slide through the area Thursday afternoon, bringing some rain showers and isolated thunderstorms. The front should clear by Thursday evening, setting the stage for a dry and hot weekend.

Outside of a pop-up shower or storm, which look to be very few and far between, the weekend looks dry. Highs will climb back to the lower and middle 90s for the weekend, and with the humidity, it will feel like it is closer to 100 degrees.

Our next cold front will arrive on Monday and swing through the area in one day. Behind this front, high pressure will return and usher in cooler and much drier air. Highs will dip back into the middle and upper 80s for highs with lows dropping into the middle 60s. Rain chances will drop to zero as we move through the middle of next week.

As a note, Tropical Depression Two dissipated to just a tropical wave as it approaches the Lesser Antilles. No redevelopment of the system is expected at this time.
