6/7 – Rob Martin’s “Rain To Subside?” Tuesday Evening Forecast

Cloud cover certainly put a lid on temperatures today, with the atmosphere becoming more stable with residual cloud cover after earlier rains. We’re not looking at anything heavy-hitting for the rest of Tuesday as a result.

For Wednesday and Thursday, building high-pressure becomes a bit more of a factor, as moisture flow drops a bit and we have no organized forcing. Storm coverage will trend downward a bit each day and develop a little later in the day. We’re going with 50% Wednesday and 30% Thursday. Today will be the coolest day of the week, perhaps by a significant margin. As has been the case the last few days, we’ll have some or most locations reporting their high temperatures prior to noon local today, but that pattern will change to round out the week.

As we go into the weekend, drier air will move into the area for at least Friday and Saturday, with storm chances dropping to about 20%. A slow warming trend will top out then, with highs in the low-mid 90s and real-feels up to 105. Models attempt to push a frontal boundary into the area for Sunday and early next week, but confidence in an actual frontal passage is rather low.
