AN EXTENDED PERIOD OF UNSETTLED WEATHER SEEMS LIKELY AS A FRONT STALLS NEARBY AND A TROUGH IMPACTS THE AREA

It appears that we are in for an extended period of higher rain chances as a front stalls nearby. The combination of waves of low pressure developing along the front, a trough of low pressure setting up to our west and a very humid flow of air from the south and southwest should bring some opportunities for rainfall beginning later today or tonight through the next several days. While it will not rain much of the time, there should be occasional showers and thunderstorms, some of which could be heavy. It is impossible for weather forecasters to pinpoint when and where the rain will occur in a pattern like this. There may be some flooding issues as this pattern develops. The sun will be out at times, and during the dry and sunny periods, it will become very uncomfortable with all the humidity around. I know that this type of forecast creates problems for folks with outdoor plans but as I said before, it is very difficult to predict exactly when the rainy periods will occur. As it looks now, Saturday morning is likely to be one of those periods but that could change. So pay attention to your local forecast and monitor radar trends. Over the weekend, I will discuss the 4th of July forecast.
