Hot Days Ahead! Monday Forecast Update – 4:35pm #alwx @wvua23

7 Day Forecast - Offset Lows - PM.png

Good Monday afternoon! As of 4:30pm, a few scattered showers and storms continue to move west or southwest across the state. Not everyone will get rain this afternoon or evening, but where storms do develop, they will drop heavy rain in a short period of time. Expect storms to fade away after sunset, with conditions becoming very muggy tonight.

Upper level ridging will build into the area on Tuesday and continue nearby through Saturday. With high dewpoints and strong ridging over the area, I expect a dangerous combination of heat and humidity. This will be the hottest stretch so far this summer, with afternoon highs in the middle to upper 90s. Heat index will reach 105 in many areas beginning on Wednesday and lasting through Saturday. Rain chances will only remain at 10% through the end of the week, with only a small chance of an isolated shower or storm during the afternoon.

Sunday and Monday, there is evidence of an approaching upper air trough. This will help to increase rain chances and reduce the heat a tad.

Tropical Storm Don forms in Atlantic… Monday Update – 4:15pm #alwx @wvua23

Tropical Close Up Loop Storm NHC Track.png

Tropical Storm Don Discussion Number   1
NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL       AL052017
500 PM AST Mon Jul 17 2017

An Air Force Reserve reconnaissance aircraft investigating the area
of low pressure located east-southeast of the Windward Islands has
found a small, but well-defined surface circulation and a small
area of tropical-storm-force winds over the eastern semicircle of
the circulation.  The associated convection is not particularly
well organized, but there is a curved band located to the north
of the center and a couple of bursts have formed closer to the
small circulation center this afternoon. Based on these data,
advisories are being initiated on a tropical storm, the fourth of
the 2017 Atlantic hurricane season. Don is currently within a
low shear environment and over warm water, so some strengthening is
possible tonight and Tuesday. Once the system enters the eastern
Caribbean Sea, strong upper-level westerly winds and strong
low-level easterly flow are likely to cause the small circulation to
open up into a trough.  As a result, dissipation is forecast within
72 hours.

Don is moving westward or 275/15 kt. The tropical storm is forecast
to move quickly westward within the strong trade-wide flow for the
next few days.  The NHC track is along the southern edge of the
guidance envelope, closest to the HFIP corrected consensus
prediction.
