Still Feeling Like Summer

The late season run of summer weather continues today with temperatures rivaling the warmest days of the year (that isn't saying too much). Coinciding with the heat and humidity isolated showers and storms develop this afternoon and evening. The remainder of the week brings an uptick in daily shower and storm coverage which will also help to keep temperatures slightly lower, though still above normal. "Regular" feeling September conditions resume to start next week.

The newest version of the RaysWeather.com app is now available for Android phones and soon to come for iPhones and iPads.

If you are one of the poor weather info deprived folks who don't have the app, here are the links... iTunes Apps for iPhone and iPad and Google Play Store for Android.

Forecast Discussion

The Bermuda High is flexing some late summer muscle today leading to increased heat and humidity. Though lacking organization, isolated late day showers and storms are a result of better instability.

A weak front that is moving through the Ohio Valley today drops south Wednesday and stalls across western NC for a quick 24 hours. It doesn't have a lot of punch, but it will have enough "umph" to bring a better round of showers and storms Wednesday afternoon and evening. The front lifts north Thursday leaving us in a moist airmass continuing the unsettled theme of late afternoon and evening convection.

Late Saturday into Sunday another front makes a run through the Ohio Valley with a clean sweep all the way to the coast. High pressure builds to our north behind the front eventually wedging down the east side of the Appalachians to start next week. Cooler weather makes inroads Sunday and then looks to setup shop for the start of the work week.
