Good morning bloggers,
- Mostly sunny today with south to southwest winds 10-25 mph. HOT! High: 95° to 100°
- Wednesday: Morning clouds with a few lingering showers. High: 88°
It has now rained in our viewing area every day this month. The problem for area lawns and gardens is that the rain has been very light. And, again this morning an area of rain showers is moving across north of I-70:
A weak cold front will move through early on Wednesday morning and there will be a good chance of heavier thunderstorms as it approaches our area. How wide spread will the rain be, and how heavy are the two big questions for tonight’s forecast.
Tropical Storm Chantal has formed southeast of the islands and it is forecast to curve west north west over the Bahamas. It is not forecast to strengthen much at all during the next few days, but I guarantee Florida is watching this closely.
Overall, the weather pattern is just not producing in our area. I mean, it is not producing any organization to precipitation. And, now, in the next week we will see the jet stream retreat farther north and an anticyclone has to be the result over our area as it builds overhead and then shifts around. Where will it go? It should shift to the east and then completely flatten out with the jet stream shifting farther south again within 15 days.
For now, let’s enjoy the summer weather. I haven’t watered yet, but depending on what happens with the thunderstorms tonight I may finally turn on the water this week. The lawn is still green.
Have a great Tuesday. We will go over these details on 41 Action News tonight.
