AM Showers, Nice Afternoon

A batch of showers moving east from TN make a quick appearance this morning. They will serve to "cleanse" the atmosphere for the afternoon and most of us stay dry the remainder of the day. Another cluster of showers and storms return tomorrow, mainly in the afternoon, but timing is a little tricky so I won't completely limit the wording to then. After a subtle cooldown Monday and Tuesday the remainder of the week is quite warm.

Forecast Discussion

Summertime forecasting, a lot of effort some days for not much weather. That's what this morning felt like. Off the bat showers make a quick appearance first thing this morning as they head east from TN. Sunshine returns after they pass followed by a refreshing northwest wind for the afternoon. Other than a rogue PM shower we'll stay dry the rest of the day.

We'll be watching a stronger cluster of showers and storms to head east from the TN Valley Monday as they ride along a stationary boundary. Timing will have to be worked out once they show-up on the map tonight over in Missouri and Illinois. My thinking at this moment is for a late morning arrival tomorrow. Regardless of timing, we should have good coverage once they get here. The stationary front actually makes some progress southwards by Tuesday providing for a slight cooldown. The front washes out as the Bermuda high regains a stronghold across the Southeast Wednesday and beyond. I'm eyeballing Wednesday and Friday afternoons for the best remaining opportunities for afternoon showers of the week. However, the takeaway after tomorrow is largely a dry one overall with the exception of those lucky few who get more than their fair share.
