Few showers, lots of clouds

August 14th, 2012 at 7:56 am by under Weather

A storm system moving in from the west is bringing a few showers to the area this morning.  Not everyone gets to see rain, however… it has been mainly confined to our northern counties.  We will continue at least a chance of showers through lunch, and as the storm passes east of us the rain chances end for the later afternoon.  Then, high pressure builds in for the middle part of the week:


Not only will this bring the return of sunshine to the area, but also pleasantly warm temperatures.  We will see highs near-normal, in the lower 80s with comfortable levels of humidity.  It will get a little toasty on Thursday–the warmest day of the week–with highs in the mid to upper 80s.  This happens ahead of a cold front.  Most of Thursday will be dry, with a slight chance of a shower or thunderstorm by evening.  But rain chances really increase Thursday night and into Friday morning as the front approaches.  Scattered showers and thunderstorms will be likely at this time, and some of them could be on the strong side.  It’s still a long way out, but the Storm Prediction Center does have us on the edge of an Elevated Risk for severe weather:

We will keep an eye on it.  This is an unseasonably strong cold front, and will once again drop temperatures for the weekend–another taste of Fall!  Highs Saturday will be in the lower 70s, with morning temps on Sunday as cool as 50-degrees!  That will feel a little, dare I say it, chilly!

No half-training update today, as I took yesterday as a rest day after the 10.4 miles I ran on Sunday.  I hope to get a few miles in today, and I will likely be pushing a heavy load… two kids in a double-baby-jogger!  Wish me luck :)   Speaking of kids, my two-year-old, who has been a late-talker, said his first two-word sentence this morning.  “Momma works!” SO cute, but I kind of have mixed feelings about it if you know what I mean.  Nothing like giving momma a guilt trip for being a working mom!  Sigh.

    Despite rumors of unseasonably warm temperatures returning by the final week of this month, are we heading to one of the coldest Augusts on record?
