Storms taper off a bit this week

Weather Blog

Precipitation lingers tonight, but limited through mid-week.

The start of the new work week, or the first full week of July, is picking up where the weekend ended… spotty storms that may bring gusty winds and localized flooding.  The good news is that the storms will few and far between and the future of the wet pattern is now in jeopardy thanks to an area of high pressure that will develop and scour out some of the low-level moisture and precipitation. Not all of it mind you, but a good deal of it.

Tuesday looks good with the temps on the cooler than average side of the ledger topping out in the mid to low 80s east of the Foothills.  There may be a rogue storm pop up in the heat of the day, but otherwise a much quieter pattern than over the past several days.

Wednesday will be similar to Tuesday albeit a little warmer. Showers and storms return to the region on Thursday as a front moves across the region.  Storms and rain linger overnight then drift south on Friday leaving most of the Commonwealth on the dry side. We are looking at some dry and warm/hot weather for the upcoming weekend but we have to keep an eye on the tropics.

The National Hurricane Center is monitoring an area of low pressure currently over southern Georgia.  This is expected to drop south off the coast of the Florida Panhandle late this week and may develop into a tropical storm (Barry would be the name if it does).  The forecast models are all over the place but most do not bring this feature into the Mid-Atlantic region but rather west into the gulf coast of Texas then up the Mississippi.  Way to early to say for sure, but as mentioned above… it is being monitored closely.
