Umbrella Weather the Next Few Days…Remains Hot & Muggy

TODAYS WEATHER PATTERN1

Nate became a post-tropical cyclone this morning over the Ohio River Valley. So, basically…it lost its tropical characteristics and is now affiliated with frontal boundaries.  The cold front affiliated with the remnant low of Nate will move into our area tomorrow.

 

TODAYS WEATHER PATTERN

 

However, today won’t be too bad. There will be a few showers, but not a wash-out. There were a few showers early this morning (north of the Southside) affiliated with the remnants of Nate. This afternoon’s rain chance will mainly be sparked from the heat of the day.

FUTURE TRAK FORECAST – TODAY

 

Not everyone experiences rain today, but we all have a good chance at receiving rain tomorrow. This is because the cold front will move into our area and stall…triggering periods of rain across our region.  So, carry the umbrella and plan on a chance for showers throughout the day…with locally heavy downpours possible.

FUTURE TRAK FORECAST – TOMORROW

 

The stalled front will begin moving further South by Wednesday, but it’ll still be close enough to keep higher rain chances in our forecast thru Wednesday morning.

FUTURE TRAK FORECAST – WEDNESDAY

 

Due to the abundance of atmospheric moisture in our area, rainfall estimates between now and Wednesday will range from 1″-3″.  Most of the rain will fall on Tuesday.

RAINFALL ESTIMATES THRU WEDNESDAY

 

Aside from the chance for showers…expect it to be warm and breezy today. Southerly winds will be sustained anywhere from 10-20mph with higher gusts throughout the day.

FUTURE TRAK WINDS- THIS AFTERNOON

 

The warm southerly flow is also leading to our above average temps! This morning, we started with Low-Mid 70s. That’s WARMER than the AVG. HIGH for our area this time of year.

VERY WARM MORNING LOWS

 

We’ll keep above average temps the next few days…

COOLING DOWN SOON

 

However, today’s highs will reach the upper 80s (feeling like low 90s with the humidity). Lows 80s tomorrow, then cooling into the 70s behind the previously mentioned cold front by Wednesday.

NEW TROPICAL STORM DEVELOPED

 

Aside from Nate, there’s a new tropical cyclone over the Atlantic.  Tropical Depression #17 formed early this morning, then it was upgraded to Tropical Storm Ophelia as of the 11AM advisory from the NHC. Thankfully, it’s no threat to the U.S.
