More Showers/Thunderstorms

Today’s synoptic setup is almost identical to yesterday’s.  The only difference is that the stationary front has nudged itself a little to the east, extending from Ohio down into western North Carolina.  Another disturbance will track along the front today, creating another afternoon of scattered showers and thunderstorms.  Expect things to quiet down as we head into the nighttime hours as the upper level ridge, which has been guiding disturbances aloft, will shift to the east.

Tomorrow will see more unsettled weather as the stationary front isn’t going to move very much between now and then.  Upper level disturbances will once again allow for the formation of afternoon and evening showers/thunderstorms.  Friday looks to be more of the same. 

The good news is that we will see very mild temperatures over the next few days and there will be numerous intervals of sunshine.  Temperatures will be summerlike and the humidity will make it feel even warmer when the sun is out.

The upper level ridge moves out of the region by the weekend.  In it’s place, a closed low aloft will appear, meaning more unsettled weather for the weekend.  Temperatures will be cooler with highs each day continuing to lessen through Tuesday of next week.
