Not Bad for Dad

Father's Day turns out to be a pleasant finale to the weekend. In several ways today is a transition day as temperatures and humidity take another couple step northwards and plateau for the upcoming work week. A stray afternoon thundershower also suggests we've turned the corner towards a more unsettled future. Good coverage of mainly afternoon/evening showers and thundershowers starts tomorrow and locks in through at least Thursday.

Not Bad for Dad

The weather map looks very similar each day through the upcoming week. A ridge of high pressure resides in the western Atlantic pumping heat and humidity into the Southeast. Meanwhile, (in loose form) a stationary boundary stretches from Delmarva through the Ohio Valley and Upper Midwest. By Friday the western Atlantic ridge strengthens and shifts more towards the Gulf. As a result the stationary boundary lifts north towards the Great Lakes and lower New England next weekend.

All of that spells a stormy stretch of weather coming our way beginning Monday and persisting through Thursday. Expect a daily dose of scattered afternoon/evening showers and thundershowers. A few overnight thundershowers are possible each night as well. As the ridge strengthens and the front moves north Friday and Saturday temperatures start to climb, but thunder opportunities decrease. All-in-all this is a rather normal late-June weather pattern configuration.

As far as today is concerned... Happy Father's Day to all the dads! There will be a few stray afternoon thundershowers roaming western NC, but dad can handle it :-). No need to abort your plans.
