Tuesday Weekly Weather Discussion: Turning Up The Heat

Good morning. Hope everyone enjoy the holiday weekend. The weather ended up being perfect.

The one thing we will all notice this week is the arrival of summer heat. Starting with today, things will start to heat up today as this low pressure system that delivered rain last night slides off shore..

The jet stream then begins to rise over our area which brings in all the warm humid air from the south for Wednesday and Thursday. You can see this below as indicated by the red colors. 

Expect Wednesday to be sunny with highs in the low to mid 90s

Thursday is more of the same but expect more scattered clouds with a shower or storm possible. This is due to a few upper level disturbances that will swing through. I would expect to see a few storms with this but not widespread.

Heading into the weekend we will be dealing with a frontal boundary that moves into the area Saturday. Ahead of this front Friday will also be hot and humid.

 This front is associated with a low pressure system up to our north. The image below shows this..

We need to track the timing of this frontal passage but at this time there looks to be unsettled weather Friday night through Saturday. Expect showers and storms during this period.

This paves the way for beautiful weather Sunday. Low humidity and temperatures in the low 80's. 

Thanks for checking in.
