Highs Monday saw a wide swing from 72-88 after 57-64 in the morning. Coolest readings occurred where the greatest amount of cloud cover & repeated showers/t'showers occurred with cold front.
The showers last night to early this morning dropped up to 1.25" rain in a band over our southern areas from Fountain to Clinton counties!
Today has been a very nice day with low humidity & a nice breeze with upper 70s to lower 80s.
Tonight will be a crisp & cool one with lows 50-56.
We look dry through Saturday, but it will begin to turn warmer & eventually humid.
Around 90 could return by Friday & last through the weekend.
Storms (50%) are possible later Sunday to Sunday night. Isolated severe storms cannot be ruled out.
We will monitor for changes in timing or rainfall coverage.
Then, after a brief cool-down we heat back up next week with above normal temperature trend continuing the rest of August & to early September.
Mid-September still looks cooler than normal.
Using the latest model & analog data, here is the general trend now to September 13. Keep in mind that this will be tweaked & that we will need to watch the Gulf of Mexico for tropical development. There is a chance that some of that could impact our area, which would influence this forecast.
