That Summer Ahhh Feeling

Drier, slightly cooler air arrived Tuesday night making this morning one of those "ahhh, so nice" summer mornings. However, yesterday's weak frontal boundary is just to our east and will basically hold that position for the next three days. While we'll have lots of pleasant hours, isolated afternoon thundershowers are expected today, Thursday, and Friday. The next front from the northwest encroaches on our 4th of July Weekend party with more humid air and scattered afternoon/evening thunder.

Ray continues to blog periodically in the wake of Relay with Ray. Ray added a new blog Wednesday, an interview with Don Lister, the only other person to have run the Blue Ridge Parkway in consecutive days.

Forecast Discussion

High pressure is centered in Illinois today. It edges slowly east during the next two days. Yesterday's front is weakly represented on the map from Virginia Beach, southeast across NC, to the Central Gulf Coast States, then northwest across the Great Plains. The theme from that set up is pleasant weather for the next three days; however, isolated afternoon/early evening thundershowers thanks to daytime heating and the boundary just to our east. Temperatures will be slightly warmer Friday.

The next front out of Canada reaches the Ohio Valley Saturday, then stalls near us Sunday and Monday. The poorly timed (for PM holiday outings) result will be increased coverage and intensity of showers and thunderstorms Saturday through the 4th of July. Temperatures will be held in check by more cloud cover. It will feel more sticky because of increased humidity.

Beginning Tuesday and probably the theme for the rest of next week, high pressure in the Gulf will muscle up and expand northward. That will reduce PM storm coverage to isolated, but turns on the heat again (maybe the warmest of the season thus far by next Friday).
