FIRST ALERT FORECAST: Rain chances increase this evening. -Erik Dean

Somewhat cooler temperatures for Monday.

DISCUSSION: I hope you had a wonderful weekend. Overall today was nice, but now the rain and thunderstorm chances will increase as we head into the late evening and into the overnight hours. *HOPEFULLY* we can get enough before midnight to put us above normal for the month. As it stands right now, we are going to finish July at around -.35″ below normal. For the year, that puts us at -2.61″ below normal. We’ll talk about what the month of August looks like in terms of  normals tonight @ 10, so you definitely do not want to miss that.

So we will see the rain and thunderstorm chances pick up across the area around the 8 PM time frame. By 1 AM, it’s out of here and as that front pushes through, the wind shifts out of the north, and northwest which will keep us relatively cool again for tomorrow.

For Wednesday, the latest guidance is showing temps staying in the upper 80s – low 90s. The rain and thunderstorm chances will pick up across the area as well. Then once the cool front pushes through, we drop into the low to mid 80s for Thursday & Friday. By the weekend, we go back into the upper 80s – low 90s with increasing rain chances, then the rollercoaster ride continues next week with temps in the mid 80s for Monday.

Enjoy your evening!
