Relief Coming

A front slips southward Thursday and Friday ramping-up our afternoon thundershower chances while scaling back the heat. At this point, Friday appears to be the wettest day of the two. The weekend isn't as wet, but we'll still dodge some late afternoon thundershowers which is par for the course this time of the year.

Forecast Discussion

A stalled frontal boundary in Virginia starts to slip southward on Thursday while at the same time upper level energy from the west begins to make strides closer to the region. These two combine to bring more clouds as well as increased shower and thundershower chances to close out the week. With the increased cloud cover and rain chances, temperatures cool back to more seasonable numbers. At this point, Friday appears to be the wettest pick of the two.

The front begins to lift back to the north over the weekend. Temperatures make a climb back upward while rain chances take a step backward. All in all, the weekend will end up as a typical warm summerlike weekend with hit and miss afternoon showers and thundershowers.

Our next front begins to make progress towards the region on Monday. Scattered showers and storms are a good bet in advance of the front. The front ends up in South Carolina by Tuesday allowing drier high pressure to build in from the north. This results in Tuesday being a day to look forward to with comfortable temps and humidity.
