8/14 – Brittany’s “Sunshine Ahead” Sunday Evening Forecast
Weak ridging over the area has brought in slightly drier air and kept rain coverage down for the most part today. As we begin the new work week, rain chances will continue on the lower side, especially compared to the recent norms as ridging tries to hold in place. Lower rain chances does mean temperatures will rise into the lower 90s in most locations with enough moisture still around to make heat index values noticeable. Generally should see values in the 102-106 range tomorrow and Tuesday which keeps us below heat advisory criteria.
By mid-week a series of disturbances riding across the central Plains and with riding sliding east over Florida and the Atlantic, will allow for a slight increase in rain chances. That said, the front will not likely make much headway towards our area Wednesday and will allow for at least one more day of more typical summer rain chances. As the boundary shifts slightly south and disturbances make their way closer to the forecast area, rain chances are likely to be on the rise again by Thursday and Friday as well as the weekend.
