07/07 – Brantly’s “Warm, Humid, with Scattered Showers” Wednesday Forecast
Widespread flash flooding is still not expected given the overall scattered nature of the slow moving showers and storms. No severe organized convection is expected through the period. However, some storms could produce frequent lightning and some gusty winds due to rain loading in storms with heavier rain cores. For temps, given the higher coverage of showers and cloud cover, expecting most areas to be generally in the low to mid 80s maybe even some upper 70s like today. High temps on Thursday will be just a tad higher with generally mid to upper 80s expected across the region. Overnight lows remain the same with around 70 well inland to the mid 70s at the immediate coast.
The weather pattern is not expected to much change rolling into Thursday. The pattern looks the same with similar moisture levels still high and little inhibition. Therefore, should see another 70-90% coverage day with some locations possibly seeing quite heavy rainfall on a the scale of the size of a city. We may see a slight reduction in coverage on Friday as the trough lifts and shifts farther east. The ridge to the west will try to build farther east as that occurs but its influence locally will be minimal. The threat for isolated flash flooding will likely continue. At least the higher rain chances and cloud cover over the next few days will keep high temps at or below normal.
