MONDAY (8/1) MORNING WEATHER BRIEFING

 

 

GOOD MORNING!

And welcome to August, the final month of Meteorological Summer. First off a quick review of July.

As expected, it was a warmer-than-average month across the region. We also had our hottest day since July 2012 with a high of 92 on the 23rd.

It may come as a surprise, but July will go into the record books as WETTER than average. Huh?? My lawn is still really brown. Well the last couple of days of the month brought slow-moving thunderstorms with tropical downpours, at that jacked up the rain totals in many spots…including the airport. Final numbers:

Yes, the airport was one of the wetter spots. With over 1.5″ of rain in the last 3 days, my house in Boardman had 4.1″ for the month. Some were not so lucky. Overall rain compared to average in July shows plenty of dry areas:

On to August! Today will be a warm and humid one although the afternoon will not be as sunny as the start. In fact, a weak disturbance aloft may trigger a sprinkle or shower in one or two spots this afternoon.

Notice the lower dewpoints to our north and west….we’ll get in on some of that drier air tomorrow. Not a huge change but dewpoints near 60 is better than near 70.

HEAT, HUMIDITY RETURNS

The break will be a short one. Temperatures will return to the upper 80s/near 90 later this week with an increase in humidity as well. We also look largely dry through Friday morning. thurs

That cold front approaching on Friday is likely to bring showers and storms late in the day and at night.

Temperatures will retreat nicely just in time for the weekend. Temperature trends next 2 weeks on GFS/European models:
