8/3 – Rob’s “T-Storms Continue” Tuesday Morning Forecast
Now that we’ve broken the back of the heat wave, our concern returns to thunderstorms and heavy rain. The frontal boundary currently along the interior counties will gradually work its way southward over the sound by tonight. The potential for another round of showers/t-storms will be possible during the heat of the day.
The main question is exactly where the front hangs up, and eventually washes out as the upper support shifts eastward. With some uncertainty in the final resting place of the front, having a difficult time keeping Wednesday and Thursday completely dry across the area. However, if current trends continue, and a second disturbance diving southward through the Dakotas this afternoon could be the deciding factor, later forecasts may be drier than what this package will be.
Clouds and precipitation will likely hold temps in the 80s today. Another disturbance will pass just north of the area Friday into Saturday before high-pressure tries to rebuild over the northern Gulf of Mexico for the end of the weekend into early next week.
