Into the July Saddle

Typical July weather is just a few days late to the party. The recent "cool" spell is over as temperatures return to slightly above normal levels for the rest of this week and weekend. Daily thundershower chances are between zero and slim for the most part with an exception to the rule being Wednesday. That said, with the increase in heat and humidity this week any rogue thundershowers that develop will have a tendency to be a little rowdy.

Forecast Discussion

Flashback to the middle of June...
A transition is underway to warm and muggy as the upper pattern becomes dominated by the Bermuda High/Southeastern heat ridge. Temperatures will stay a few degrees shy of the early summer heat we experienced a few weeks ago, but the overall theme is much the same.

Frontal passages are null and void until perhaps early next week as the upper ridge migrates towards the Four Corners regions. Wednesday is almost an exception as a front approaches from the west. It never makes it south of the Virginia state line, but that's close enough to straddle widely scattered to scattered afternoon/evening thundershower coverage.

Beyond Wednesday, afternoon thundershower opportunities are void of any significant triggers depending mainly on daytime heating and terrain influences. Consider yourself lucky if one bubbles up in your area providing some nice relief from the heat.
