We reached 90° again yesterday with a dewpoint of 62. We will reach the low 80s today with more cloud cover around. Chances of rain will be best this morning then a chance of a rain shower or storm this afternoon.
It is getting dry around the area, we have had 1.8 inches of rain this month – the last time it rained here was on the 13th with a tenth of an inch.
Above is the summer forecast from NOAA, not sure if I am in complete agreement with it however as with Slim I will reserve judgment knowing how long term forecasts play out.
Here is the hazards forecast from the NWS:
.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight Scattered thunderstorms are expected today, most of which will be from late morning into early evening, east of US-131. Any thunderstorms will be slow moving so locally very heavy rainfall is possible from these storms. Gusty winds area also possible from these storms. .DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Monday through Saturday A strong cold front (for this time of year) will trigger thunderstorms Monday, mostly during the mid to late afternoon into the early morning hours of Tuesday. Gusty winds, and locally heavy rainfall should be expected from the strongest of these storms. Afternoon inland thunderstorms are possible Wednesday and Thursday. Then as the warm air pushes back toward Michigan a more widespread thunderstorm event is possible Friday into Saturday.
