06/29 – Brantly’s “Scattered Thunderstorms” Tuesday Forecast
Temperatures will continue to remain warm with highs approaching 90 on Thursday before rain limits how hot the temperatures can get. It will be humid with dew points in the 70s. This will also lead to uncomfortable low temperatures in the mid 70s.
The main threat will be the risk for heavy rainfall with most areas receiving less than a half inch per day. However…locally 2 inches plus will be possible in an isolated area given the high moisture content and where repeat showers and storms train over the same area.
Temperatures will be slightly cooler this weekend due to the increased rain chances, with highs in the 80s. Overnight lows will range from the upper 60s to low 70s inland with mid to upper 70s near the coast.
There will be a cold front that is expected to move into the lower Mississippi Valley, but unfortunately it is unlikely to bring any major relief as it is forecast to stall out before reaching the coast. Regardless of the exact spot where it stalls, we will be stuck at the base of the trough, so expecting increased coverage and several rounds of showers and thunderstorms through early next week. Storms will be highly efficient rain producers and may have training. Much of the area is still saturated from all the rain we have been having, so flash flooding will be a big concern.
