Storm Chances This Week

Old weather folklore suggests that an unusually warm first week of August means a snowy season ahead. You may not need shovels yet but this little saying could be on to something especially since we have already had 3 days of 90 degrees or better this month with more to come.

We start out the new workweek with more heat, humidity, and the chance of a late day storm. Highs will be in the upper 80s to around 90 degrees Monday and Tuesday before hopping over the 90 degree mark midweek.

With the increased heat and a stalled frontal boundary the threat for late day storms remains. At this point it looks as if Wednesday and Thursday will provide us with best bet for stormy weather. Either way no day looks to be a washout with storm chances decreasing into the weekend as high pressure takes over.

Temperatures will also dip back to seasonable and comfortable levels later this week as the front sweeps through. Canadian high pressure will deliver relief in the humidity department as well making for a great weekend ahead.

Long range trends suggest cooler weather to come as we enter the middle and end of August. Precipitation chances will remain normal to slightly above average for the remainder of the month. Once again much better than what we experienced in 2018 where it was raining everyday.
