Requirements for a perfect weather day

High pressure will keep the benign weather pattern across the region for Wednesday and most of Thursday. These are nearly perfect conditions for early summer fun with ample sunshine, light winds, and low humidity.

High’s will get into the mid 70’s and feel comfortable until rain chances hit late Thursday. So get out and enjoy what you can of this nicer weather, because you may not get out much this weekend.

European Model Precipitation for Saturday

As we look ahead, there is still some uncertainty in when and how strong the storms will be. As models start to agree on the location of a large upper level low pressure center, they still disagree on the timing and location of the other dynamics that help create storms.

That’s not to say we won’t be getting plenty of rainfall with these passing storms, because moisture levels will be high regardless with rising dew points. It’s the timing of the frontal passage and upper level jet stream movement that will determine the degree of severity. It’s still too early to get specific, but expect to see times of heavier rainfall.

Uncertainty is moderate with these stronger storms, but we’ll get a much better understanding late Thursday and Friday morning on this system. Per usual, there will likely be changes to this forecast, so check back in later this week.
