Sunday SUNDAY Sunday!
Hello everyone. I hope you've been able to enjoy this weekend. If you haven't yet, don't fear-- we've got another good day lined up today. High pressure finally traverses the Ohio Valley, continuing to keep the clouds at bay:
|HPC - Sunday PM|
This here's going to buy us some time in the sun, however it's not a particularly strong or dominant area of high pressure. If you look at the number just above the "H" it says "1016". This is a pressure reading (in milibars, because the British system of measurements makes the math O so much easier). You can think of it like a topographical map, with the "H"s being the hills and the "L"s being the valleys. The "average" surface pressure on the Earth is 1013.5 milibars (or "mb" for short), so 1016 and 1012 is not that impressive at all for high and low pressure. Summer time is marked with these weak ripples all over the place, and one of the reasons for it is that the temperatures are not all that dynamic. In the winter, it can be 0-degrees in Maine, and 70 in Florida; in the Summer, both areas can be 90, as well as everything in between. Not very good for encouraging dynamic storm systems.
Okay, so this area of high pressure will continue to waltz it's way through, and then we'll start back up the afternoon storm engine:
|GFS - Late Monday||GFS - Tuesday PM|
Overall, not too bad. It doesn't look like a looming severe weather threat-- just more showers and rumbles to cap off an extraordinarily wet July.
By the time we're done, we will probably exceed 8" of rain for the month in Huntington... Certainly could have used that a few months ago!
