Still some pesky showers, but more of a break today

Angling for most of the showers in the eastern/half of the area today, but we're still in summer form...

Good Monday morning everyone-- back to another workweek!

If the weekend was any indication, our humid/tropical air mass has been permitting many more hours of sunlight than that of the downpours, but we've had to deal with each during the day. When the Sun's out it's all about the steam heat; then the rain comes steady enough to have us run for cover.

We'll try to carve out a little break today, but (again) it won't be for everyone. Let's check the maps once again:

NAM - Monday Morning NAM - Monday Evening

Our storm energy has been creeping along for the past, oh, month or so ;-) but now it's finally skipping toward the Appalachians and over to the other side. Expect most of the afternoon (diurnal) convection to be there. There will still be several hours of dry skies in all corners, so you can plan some outdoor activity. Places that get drenched the most during the day will be the best candidates for fog in the overnight (particularly near the rivers).

HPC - Surface Map - Tuesday

Our next system approaches on Wednesday, and will once again fire up the scattered storms-- technically the storms never left, but they'll be at a relative minimum Monday/Tuesday. Scattered showers and storms will be in our midst from there into Friday, and then skies will clear and quiet down in time for the upcoming weekend.

GFS - Saturday GFS - Sunday

As high pressure comes in, temperatures will naturally cool down (but stay out of the frost range). Considering we'll be knocking at the door of 90-degrees at times this week, perhaps this weekend's weather will come in handy.
