We'll Take It

Overall it's been on the dry side so far this month and July is climatologically the wettest month of the year (just above March and August). Of course there's plenty of room to grow and we will have made a dent in the "dryness" after all is said and done tomorrow. Today had good coverage of afternoon showers and storms, with evening showers and storms ending after sunset. Tuesday sees decent coverage as well ahead of an incoming front that passes through Tuesday night. Behind the front the second half of the work week is mostly dry and quite refreshing with considerably lower humidity levels.

Forecast Discussion

The combination of a rather soupy airmass and an approaching cold front help to generate scattered showers and storms again tomorrow. Showers and thundershowers this evening diminish with the loss of daytime heating, however we can't entirely rule out a shower or two late during the nighttime hours or early tomorrow morning. The front moves through Tuesday night replacing the muggy air with drier, modified continental air courtesy of high pressure originating from Canada. Wednesday through Friday are rather stellar with lots of sunshine and noticeably cooler mornings.

The aforementioned front doesn't entirely fade off the weather map as it stalls over the Deep South mid-week and then retreats north as a warm front this weekend. The "muggies" return Saturday and so does a higher likelihood of scattered showers and thundershowers. Essentially, it's back to business as usual for late July.
