Rainy Start to the Week

Posted: Updated:

Father's Day Weekend:  We enjoyed the benefits of having a strong high pressure centered over our heads for Father's Day Weekend.  This made it possible to enjoy more sun than clouds with somewhat low humidity and no rain. 

More Humidity & More RainAdditional soggy weather is ahead for us today and TuesdayIt won't rain all day, but I expect numerous scattered rain and storms.

A couple of factors are making this happen.  First, that high pressure ridge has moved off the east coast and a southerly flow of moisture around that ridge of high pressure has increased the humidity level for us.  Also, a weakness (small disturbance) in the upper-level wind flow is the lone spark needed to get numerous showers and storms to develop. 

Severe Storms Or No?:  Even though storms are a part of our forecast today, we don't have the necessary upper-level environment to get widespread, destructive storms to happen today (thankfully).  Still, I won't rule out the possibility of a severe thunderstorm warning or two given the recent bouts with severe storms in our area.
