More Rain on Wednesday
Upper level ridging along with surface high pressure setting up shop in the eastern Gulf will continue to pump buckets and buckets of deep tropical moisture into the region for the rest of the week, so the high humidity isn’t going anywhere. Guh! This will help increase cloud cover to aid in bringing afternoon temperatures down a bit. We will struggle to get out of the mid 80s through Thursday, but the thick humidity will still make it feel like the mid 90s.
The aforementioned high pressure will help block a cold front sliding out of the Ohio River Valley from entering our area. Still, we’ll continue to see good coverage of showers and isolated thunderstorms through the weekend will all the tropical moisture draped across the southeast. A surface low dragging a weak front coming out of Oklahoma will help introduce some drier air into the region by early next week, so rain chances will be lower.
After a few days of “cooler” than normal daytime highs, temperatures look to get back near seasonal by Friday with highs in the low to mid 90s and lows in the low to mid 70s moving forward.
Keeping a close watch on the Atlantic as Potential Tropical Cyclone Nine is gaining strength and could become Tropical Storm Isaias (pronounced ees-ah-EE-ahs) by tonight or Wednesday. Still too early to tell if he will impact our area in anyway.
