Chief meteorologist Steve LaNore's weather discussion for 4:00 p.m:
After torrential rainfall Monday morning, the last thing we need is more rain in the forecast. Tonight we should get a breather as the upper low that has brought the rain since last week moves away to the east. There is a northwesterly wind flow pattern aloft and a few storms forming with afternoon heating may drift in tonight so I will keep a 20% chance of rain overnight and into Tuesday morning.
For Tuesday…abundant moisture remains in place and a weak cold front is moving southward. This may generate scattered showers and storms. These storms have the potential to produce pockets of heavy rainfall, and a few storms may be severe.
Upper level high pressure is indicated to build in later in the week, and finally give us a true period of dry weather. As always…time will tell.
Here are the numbers:
Tonight: 20% Thunderstorms..Low 68
Tuesday: 40% Thunderstorms..High 88
Wednesday: 40% Thunderstorms..72/88
Thursday: Partly Cloudy...70/90
Friday: Partly Cloudy...71/91
Saturday: Partly Cloudy...72/91
Sunday: Partly Cloudy...72/92
Monday: Partly Cloudy...72/92
