TUESDAY (7/5) MORNING WEATHER BRIEFING

GOOD MORNING!

I hope your holiday was a good one….the weather was “so-so” but it was generally dry for fireworks displays last night.

On to today….we are left with a lot of residual moisture in the low levels of the atmosphere this morning. It’s a cloudy, murky morning with low cloud ceilings and even some fog.

One of the ways we assess the state of the atmosphere above our heads are these complicated “skew t” diagrams. When we compare this morning’s to what is expected this afternoon we see the moist layer thinning and becoming more elevated. This should lead to a brighter sky later today (but not perfectly sunny by any means)

LOADS of moist air east of the Rockies this morning. This map of the dewpoints screams “MID SUMMER!”

Highs today will be in the lower and middle 80s.

HEAT BUILDS

Wednesday will be an uneventful day aside from the high heat and humidity. Temperatures will make a run at 90. Ignore the green blobs around us, the model just sees a few clouds, not rain.

SOME RAIN LATE IN WEEK?

Thursday and Friday will be very warm, humid days. There is a chance for spotty thunderstorms both days. Thursday’s disturbance will be weak so severe weather is not expected. Later Friday, a more substantial front will head our way and the result could be some stronger storms….particularly south and east of Youngstown.

MORE COMFORTABLE WEEKEND

Behind the front, it looks like a nice summer weekend with seasonable temperatures and lower dewpoints.

Heating up again next week.
