8/1 – Rob Knight’s “WET” Mid-Week Forecast
This morning, a surface frontal boundary extends from near Detroit to Nashville to San Antonio. While most of the land portion of our CWA is without precipitation this morning, showers and thunderstorms are occurring over much of the marine area from Mississippi Sound and south.
The Upper-level support is not going anywhere until the end of the workweek. Rain potential will begin to drop slightly tomorrow/Friday as a bit of mid-level drier air tries to work into the area. The 24-hour rain forecast continues to place the Southern 6 counties in the 1-2 inch zone. A marginal risk of excessive rainfall is still valid for our area. Clouds and precipitation should hold temperatures from getting much past the mid/upper 80s.
As Bermuda high tries to shift westward over the weekend, the moisture over the eastern areas will move back westward, justifying an increase in rain chances, particularly on Saturday, with somewhat lower rain chances and slightly hotter high temperatures on tap for Monday into mid-week.
