Ramping Up PM Thunderstorms

A front is stalled to our north but adds a trigger to muggy air in place across the mountain region. Expect scattered PM showers and storms today; then increased coverage Tuesday. We remain in warm, muggy air Wednesday and Thursday with scattered mostly afternoon and evening showers and storms. Wednesday may have the least rain overall of the 4-day set. Drier air makes a cameo appearance Friday.

Discussion

Ramping Up PM Thunderstorms

The calendar does not say "summer" yet, but we are in a typical summer weather pattern. High pressure as assumed the position, centered near Bermuda. Fronts are blocked to our northwest or will only make brief appearances in the Southeast.

Today has PM clouds with scattered showers and storms focused on the afternoon and evening hours. Tuesday has greater storm coverage. Wednesday might bring a relative lull (still calling it "scattered" at this point). Then Thursday continues scattered showers and storms, mostly in the PM hours.

Slightly cooler but drier air arrives Friday--finally a dry day this week. But the Bermuda high flexes its muscle over the weekend with warmer, more humid air. I cannot rule out an afternoon storm Saturday, and Sunday has widely scattered afternoon/evening showers and storms.
