(WFXR) — Overall, the weather pattern is looking pretty mellow as high pressure remain in place today and Tuesday. There will be some clouds move in late in the day Tuesday ahead of a cold front that is going to cross the area late Wednesday into Thursday morning. Ahead of the front will be warm air and scattered rain showers that may be intermingled with some isolated storms. For the most part that is about it for the region.
The temps will be on the very warm side and maybe classified as hot if we do breach the 90°-mark tomorrow in the Piedmont. The skies will be mostly cloudy on Tuesday but should see some clouds arrive late in the day.
Wednesday looks to be a day filled with scattered showers and possibly an isolated storm. A good old soaking is expected but nothing more. The rain will linger into the overnight time frame then taper off early on Thursday before the sun rises.
Thursday through the end of the week and into the weekend looks to be dominated by high pressure. Skies are expected to be sunny in the daytime and clear at night. Temperatures will be cool to start, after the front, but warm nicely into the middle and upper 80s over the weekend.
As for the tropics, Larry continues to intensify but also is still expected to stay offshore. A disturbance in the Bay of Campeche is showing signs of developing so that needs to be monitored. The progression looks to be into the Gulf of Mexico and over the northern portion of Florida. Storms in the Gulf of Mexico are always a concern this time of year as the waters are so warm. Doesn’t look too promising for cyclone formation at this time, but will be a concern later in the week for the SE United States.
New Freedom Farm Freedom Fest Forecast is looking good, so far. Saturday will be sunny and day and so will Sunday. This far out I hesitate to forecast with any confidence, but this is what we know so far.
