With all the hot and steamy weather over the past month, it’s hard to believe that summer doesn’t officially start until 1:16 this afternoon. If you have a lot of things to do, you’re in luck as today will be the longest day of the year. From here on out, the days will continue to shorten in length. Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like we’ll see a break from the hot, humid weather anytime soon.
A frontal boundary currently stretches from western North Carolina up into Wisconsin. This front will push through the region today, creating a pretty decent chance of afternoon showers and thunderstorms. Today will be the hottest day of the week, as we’ll see temperatures at the lower elevations rise into the mid 80’s.
We’ll return to a southwesterly wind flow tomorrow once again. The Bermuda high in the western Atlantic has had a stranglehold on our weather over the past several weeks. Warm, humid air will create a good chance for showers/thunderstorms to develop tomorrow afternoon.
A cold front nears the region on Wednesday. In fact, this cold front is expected to linger in the region through the weekend. Upper level disturbances will combine with the surface front to create unsettled weather each day.
