MONDAY (8/8) MORNING WEATHER BRIEFING

GOOD MORNING!

After a great weekend, we have some mid/late summer heat and humidity on the way this week.

First off, some “annoying” clouds are around this morning but they will sink south this afternoon, leaving us with sunshine and (for one more day) low humidity.

Dewpoints remain in the “comfy range” today.

Meanwhile, a stalled low pressure system over the NE Gulf of Mexico has produced huge rain amounts over the last 48 hours….thankfully mostly over water. But even inland in Florida, there have been some big totals. The threat for flooding rains along the Gulf Coast will be a national weather story this week.

BUILDING HEAT, HUMIDITY

Back here at home, a big dewpoint surge will occur during midweek, leading to some pretty uncomfortable weather.

With that will come a chance for spotty thunderstorm activity just about every day Tuesday-Friday. While there are no obvious “triggers” for the activity, enough heat and humidity will be present to spark off hit/miss stuff in the afternoons especially.

FRIDAY

NEEDED RAIN

The threat for rain will continue over the weekend. Bad news if you have outdoor plans but excellent news for farmers and gardeners. The potential is there for a couple or even a few inches of rain over the next week. Key word: potential. A lot of this will be hit/miss activity so everyone’s “mileage may vary”.

August has been (no surprise) warmer-than-average so far:

I see no change to the overall pattern over the next couple of weeks. Lots of warmth with occasional cool downs to average.
