8/22 – Rob’s Thursday Morning Forecast

0

Rain will move into the area today with isolated t-storms as well. Temperatures will climb into the mid to upper 80s

By Friday, we will continue to see surges of shower/storm clusters driven by outflow boundary moving north. While the overall atmospheric moisture profile remains the same, an increase in southerly flow will continue the saturation process. This may be concerning with the potential for flash flooding and a few strong thunderstorms.

This pattern will persist into the weekend, with continued high chances at shower and t-storms. As a trough of low-pressure propagates from the Bay of Campeche, the main impacts in our area will be increased shower and t-storm chances this weekend and into early next week, with a steady but gradual shift back to typical afternoon shower/storm coverage by mid-week. Long-range guidance has been hinting at some possibility of a potential “cold” front passage late next week into next weekend that (may) bring a slight break in the heat and rain chances, but will monitor trends as we get into early next week should this potential become reality.
