Storms off and on this week


Pattern of afternoon storms expected into the holiday

As we move through the week the pattern of afternoon storms will persist until at least the weekend.  The regime of temperatures in the upper 80s to low 90s and isolated to widely scattered storms has once again set up camp.  There will be little change in the weather this week as the moisture is available for afternoon storms each day with little hope of scouring out the showers.  As the rain and storms arrive expect periods of very heavy rain that may lead to localized flooding.

The forecast will change little on the holiday so the hope of having a cloud free and rain free Forth is pretty low.   Not a complete wash out, but not dry.  If you are planning a trip to the mountains this week or later this week over the long holiday weekend make sure to keep an eye on the sky.  The storms that arrive will pop up quickly and provide a good deal of rain in a very short period of time.  The potential for flooding or flash flooding is a possibility.  If you are camping make sure to be aware of your surroundings, take a survey of the topography and the local creeks and streams.  Flash flooding is often a result of heavy rain and hilly terrain so it would be wise to be aware of your proximity to features that may lead to flooding.

Stay safe and stay hydrated.
