TD #3 Swings And Misses
It is not the time of the season for cold frontal passages in our neck of the woods. However, a strong cold front is approaching from the northwest, and will have enough gas in the tank to cruise through the Chattahoochee Valley by Tuesday night. Ahead of the front, a shower and thunderstorm will be on the prowl again toward daybreak. However, the lion’s share of wet weather will take place during the late morning and afternoon hours Tuesday. The risk of severe weather is not zero, although most storms will be accompanied by torrential downpours as opposed to damaging wind gusts and hail.
Meanwhile, tropical depression #3 has formed off the southeast coast of Florida. However, it will have no impact on our weather. There may be some rough surf and rip currents to contend with along the East Coast. However, it’s the same cold front that is marching through our area that will keep this tropical entity just offshore.
The humidity will take a comfy dip Tuesday night through Thursday. While it may shower briefly in a few spots Wednesday afternoon, take advantage of the change in humidity. It doesn’t happen often in Summer, and sure enough higher humidity will trickle back Friday into next week with a stray afternoon thunderstorm.
