Summer Feeling Minus The Big Sizzle

The weather pattern the rest of this week is more like summer than late Spring (minus unbearable heat). Gulf moisture is plentiful so we feel the mugginess, but temperatures stay in check for the most part. Look for scattered to widely scattered afternoon showers and thundershowers today. You know how it goes with summer convection...there are winners and losers. That's the story through Friday though coverage will be a little better the next couple of days.

Forecast Discussion

The weather calendar has rolled forward a month in a hurry. We're in a rather classic summer pattern with sprawling high pressure centered over the Atlantic extending it's reach to the Southeast. It's somewhat of a blocking configuration not allowing the intrusion of any fronts. On the flip-side plenty of Gulf moisture is being pumped into the Carolinas. We'll basically depend on the presence of juicy air and daytime heating to trigger afternoon showers and thunderstorms.

That said, not all days are created equal. Coverage of showers and storms will be in the borderline "widely scattered" category today. Tomorrow and Friday are more in the solid "scattered" range. Maximum temperatures are very dependent on an early run of morning sunshine before the clouds really fill-in or a brief window of partial afternoon clearing.

The weekend is drier with only an isolated late day thundershower Saturday, perhaps a couple more Sunday. It will also be warmer with more sunshine.

A front tries to limp through early next week. It will take a couple of days and likely it wont' be a clean sweep. Coverage of daytime showers and storms are better Monday and Tuesday.
