WARM AND HUMID CONDITIONS WILL PERSIST THROUGH THE END OF THE WEEK… WITH ALL THE HEAT AND HUMIDITY AROUND, SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS WILL BE A POSSIBILITY

Well, the low humidity and pleasant weather of this past weekend are now a distant memory. A warm and very humid air mass has overspread the Mid-Atlantic states and it’s not in a hurry to leave. Dew points are above 70 which means that it will feel quite uncomfortable for most of us. In an air mass like this, it doesn’t take much to produce showers and thunderstorms. However, forecasting exactly when and where¬†they will occur is very difficult in our current weather situation. Upper-level disturbances, weak frontal boundaries, daytime heating, etc. are all potential triggers for convection. However, no rain has fallen in my neighborhood so far this week. In addition, not much rain has fallen in several weeks, which has resulted in rather dry conditions. Some areas have seen rainfall, such as Northeast N.C., especially during the early morning hours the past couple of days. The overall weather pattern is expected to remain the same into the first part of the weekend… The Tropical Atlantic is quiet for now.
