PM Storms, Diminishing Tonight... Repeat

We've begun a period of daily afternoon-evening shower and thunderstorm events thanks to the Bermuda high off the coast. Expect hit or miss showers and storms lingering through tonight. We'll have plenty of dry hours each day, but we'll also contend "splash and dash" events. You can do the outdoor stuff, but be prepared.

Forecast Discussion

A front will remain to our north (MD, VA, KY) for the next 7 days with high pressure centered in the Western Atlantic extending into the Southeast. An added bonus will be a tropical feature circling the perimeter of high pressure Wednesday through Friday--up the Mississippi River Valley then NE to West Virginia and exiting via Maryland.

The result will be mostly afternoon showers and storms with a few heavy periods of rain mixed in. Each day will have plenty of dry hours, but outdoor plans must include the afternoon rain potential. One exception to the "afternoon" emphasis may be Thursday night as shower/storm activity may keep going with the tropical low to our northwest.

Temperatures... Muggy conditions last through all 7 days. Today and Wednesday will be the warmest of this forecast period (but not quite as warm as the last few days). Then daytime temperatures settle back 3-4 degrees. A front may make it to us by next Tuesday interrupting the "wash, rinse, repeat" pattern.
