Nice Weekend Continues, Gives Way to Rain Chances – Saturday 7:55 p.m.
August 11, 2012 Leave a comment
We have had a very nice and beautiful Saturday and our Sunday is setting up to be much of the same. High pressure and a dry airmass have moved in and are keeping our temperatures down and the skies clear for a couple of days.
Beginning Sunday night we will begin to see some southerly return but it’s likely that the best moisture will hold off until Monday and will bring in showers and storms by Monday afternoon. There are some timing issues between the models beginning Monday and lasting through the rest of the week, so overall confidence on the exact timing of the system is low, however confidence on the overall synoptic pattern is high.
As the main trough remains over the eastern half of the area we will once again see several waves of energy slide down and around the trough bringing several more rounds of weather through the end of the week, much like this past week. Finally by next weekend another strong cold front will try to work through the area and clear us out by next Sunday into Monday. Overall near normal temperatures can be expected with near to even above normal rain chances.
