No break in the storms over the weekend
Each day over the next several days will be the same. There is a chance for isolated or scattered storms each day until at least next Thursday. The potential for us to see a day without any form or rain or storms is very low over the next week. The good news is that there is the hit and miss type of rain that is being heaped upon us that could spare some folks on one day and then get them the next. Either way you look at it, this pattern is here to stay.
Highs will be in the upper 80s most of the long weekend, then as we start next week we should see some cooler afternoon temperatures, but still dealing with the potential for rain each day.
Please stay safe if you are camping this weekend as the storm will be very heavy with rain and there may be flash flooding. The grounds are getting even more saturated with each passing day of rain, so the flooding potential will be achieved easily. Mountain regions are the most vulnerable to flash flooding due to the hilly terrain, but the low levels have been the regions where the water ends up. Bottom line, stay alert.
Insult to injury… one of our long range models have a tropical disturbance moving right over Virginia on the 14th of this month. Currently the low is in the process of gaining strength in the northeastern Gulf of Mexico. Long way off, but thought I might throw it out for you. Good news is that another model doesn’t have it developing at all. Welcome to the world of long range forecasting. Personally I am happy to get the next couple of days nailed down. Have a safe weekend.
