After a real soaker on Wednesday, with some areas picking up as much as 3.5″ of rain, we are off to a much more quiet start today. We’ll still see some scattered afternoon storms, but not with the coverage that we saw yesterday.

What is the rain outlook for the rest of the week?

Rain chances still look promising! A disturbance rotating around the heat ridge will bring decent rain chances Thursday through Saturday, peaking at 60% for Friday and Saturday. That’s when we’ll have the deepest moisture and strongest lift overhead to create thunderstorms. As an added bonus, highs will have a tough time climbing out of the 80s those days. None of this rain will bust the drought, but it should keep it from getting worse.

What can we expect for the weekend?

After Saturday’s 60% chance, we’ll still have enough moisture around Sunday for a 30% chance of showers and thunderstorms.. High temperatures will barely get to the upper 80s on Saturday, then rebound to the lower 90s on Sunday. We’ll make it back to the upper 90s next week.

What’s happening in the tropics?

The National Hurricane Center is monitoring a tropical wave in the east Atlantic. It currently has a low chance for development.
