Here is the latest forecast outlook to mid-September.

Highs today ran 78-84.

It was still rather humid until this evening.

Cumulus bubbled up this afternoon through this evening & even continue to do so in places out there now.

These have produced a few isolated showers.

Reason is a shortwave pivoting through.

You can see this at the mid-levels (around 10,000') as decreases in temperature & pressure & they can be plotted on a map.

There is another one in Iowa.

This one will bubble up some cumulus tomorrow, especially in the north.  The north may see an isolated shower from these.

There are also a weak cold front that will pivot through tonight.  Second one will skim through later tomorrow.

The deepest moisture will remain well south of the area through the Saturday.  Dorian will like make a Florida landfall Sunday.

Upper low north of our area will keep some occasional shortwave & surface cold front swinging through area west to east & northwest to southeast.  Each day to Saturday looks breezy to windy with Thursday & Friday being the days featuring mugginess.

Each will spark a few isolated to spotty showers/storms. 

This regime should change Sunday, followed by brief heat-up next week, followed by humid weather & a line of showers & storms next Wednesday.

Much cooler weather will follow late next week with highs only 69-75 with lows 43-49.

Much warmer, humid, breezy to windy weather with some showers & storms will return around mid-September.

Some cumulus tomorrow (especially north) may bubble up a couple sprinkles or isolated showers in the far north late.

A few showers/storms are possible late Thursday evening-night to Friday with a couple of these shortwaves & cold fronts.

Isolated severe risk will occur just northwest of us Thursday-Thursday night.

This risk could migrate southward into our area Friday.
