Wet week ahead could bring several inches of rain

Well, hope you enjoyed the weekend, because we’re in for quite a rocky week ahead.

Tonight we’re merely seeing a few widely isolated showers developing from a few convective clouds—these will end soon after the sun sets. Tonight remains partly to mostly clear with lows only dropping to near 70 at the coolest. Winds are South at 5-15mph.

Tomorrow starts dry, but a slow moving cold front edges in and brings scattered rain and storms starting early/later evening for most. Many of us will be home for the day (unless you’ve got later extracurriculars) before the scattered rain and storms move in. Highs tomorrow top out again near 90 degrees.

This cold front will nearly stall right on top of us, allowing scattered rain and storms to stick in the forecast for both Tuesday and Wednesday. We will cool down a bit, into the lower 80s, but not see too much relief from humidity.

An area of high pressure sets up shop to our NE and creates a blocking pattern that lasts through Saturday. What does this mean for us? Think of it as a kink in the hose—it doesn’t allow the wet weather to exit, so it sits on top of us and brings us scattered rain and storms not only through Wednesday, but also Thursday, Friday…and it even looks wet into the weekend.

Right now computer models agree that a coastal low will then develop for the weekend, but track is all over the place. Now what does THIS mean?! Well, track of it will be everything—one brings it out well into the Atlantic, while another slams right up the coast and could be some sort of tropical feature. This remains to be seen.

The takeaway from this is that it’s going to be wet for a while! In terms of amounts, it’s hard to say at this point, but we’ll likely be seeing well over 1.5-2” by the end of the week if this pattern holds.\
