Last day in this active weather pattern…July 10th, 2013 at 9:30 am by Jamie Jarosik under Weather
This is the last day I will have to say, “warm and humid with scattered thunderstorms” for awhile! I have been saying it for at least 2-3 weeks… it will be nice to have a change! BUT before that happens, we have to get through this afternoon. A cold front is heading our way… and we will continue a warm and humid southerly flow ahead of this feature:
We will see sun to start, and this will help to heat us quickly. By the afternoon, we’ll push into the mid and upper 80s… becoming quite unstable… and showers and thunderstorms are likely as the front approaches. While we can’t rule out a spotty shower/t’storm through lunch, the better chance will come after 2 or 3pm today. And we are in an area that could see some stronger storms today, as well:
Strong, damaging winds and large hail will be the main threats today… but we do have the continued potential for very heavy rain as we have had all week. Some of the areas that have already had flooding could see additional problems today, and a Flash Flood Watch is up for our northern and eastern counties.
FINALLY the cold front comes through tonight, and we will be back to a quiet weather pattern. Dry conditions, low humidity and slightly cooler temperatures. Highs will be near 80 Thursday and Friday… low 80s Saturday… and mid 80s Sunday, all with plenty of sunshine. Rain chance do remain low into next week.
