THE HEAT CONTINUES THROUGH EARLY NEXT WEEK… THE REMNANTS OF TROPICAL STORM BILL MOVE E-NE TOWARDS THE NORTHERN MID-ATLANTIC STATES

We will have another hot and humid day on Saturday, but coastal areas should be a bit cooler as a wind off the water is expected to develop during the afternoon hours. Thunderstorms will also be possible later today and tonight as moisture from the remnants of Tropical Storm Bill move into the Northern Mid-Atlantic States Saturday evening. The deepest moisture and instability should stay to our north but there may be just enough moisture and added lift in the atmosphere to increase our chances of seeing a storm. It appears that not everyone will see rain, but those that do get the storms could see some heavy rain and possibly a strong or severe storm. The heat continues on Sunday with a very low chance of a shower/storm. Overall Father’s Day should be a nice day, albeit on the warm side.  Early next week we will see the heat continue with just a slight chance of an isolated storm. By mid to late week, we should see an increase in the chances of storms and slightly cooler, more tolerable weather. At least that’s the way it looks right now…. Although Tropical Storm Bill moved over the areas of Texas that had the severe flooding back in May, it didn’t cause the devastating flooding that was feared since it was moving at a fairly good clip. Bill’s remnants did cause flooding issues for some areas in its path as rainfall rates were quite impressive… Speaking of rain, thunderstorms this past Tuesday brought my neighborhood a little over a half inch of rain… The tropical Atlantic is quiet for now. Thanks for reading and have a great day!
