Update - Skies are 'good enough' ahead of Thursday/Friday rains...

A Wednesday update...

Wednesday (6/5) Update - Skies are getting more hazed/clouded today, but the Sun is still making plenty of appearances. The best hours of the day will be the mid-morning through early afternoon. It's a perfect time to get some yardwork tidied up, as those showers are still in line for Thursday and Friday. The latest precipitation estimates are still running close to the 2" mark, so a healthy/needed drink of water is coming to town. Currently the prospects for severe weather are low, but we could get some spot flooding out there if you catch one of the downpours that are almost assuredly coming.


Good Tuesday morning everyone!

Any leftover fog in the valleys this morning should lift relatively soon into the day, with a brilliant afternoon filled with sunshine and pleasant temperatures. Only high pressure can deliver such a beauty, and in particular the kind we revile in the winter time. While January days like this would be spent in the virtual ice box, a seasonably cold day in June is ... wonderful :-)

The average high for this time of year has finally crept to the 80-degree mark. Having a day that's 10-degrees below normal ain't bad at all.

We'll be looking for showers to head back later Wednesday, although there is some hope to hold off the rain until later in the day (or even into Thursday). Either way it's not going to be some ominous front line; more of a scattered and patchy arrival.

From there things get a little wet around here. We'll have another one of those stubborn fronts that stalls over the Appalachians with severel impulses of showers that will make use of daytime heating. Thursday and Friday figure to be the wettest days, but the weekend is also oh-so-close to those showers too. Check out the rainfall projections during the period:

There are about a hundred-or so of you folks out there that are new (and hopefully proud) owners of WSAZ umbrellas from last month's contest. Time to get 'em out!
