Weekly Outlook: August 5-11, 2019

We’ve actually got some fairly typical summer-time weather coming up for most of the week. Nothing too extreme, just warm and humid weather for a few days with a daily chance for thunderstorms, followed by cooler and drier weather late in the week.

We start the week off with a cold front pushing farther offshore and high pressure building in today. This will result in seasonably warm temperatures and low humidity. This won’t last long, as a warm front will move through Monday night and early Tuesday. This will allow more humid air to settle back in on Tuesday. With the warm and humid air in place, a few showers and thunderstorms may develop Tuesday afternoon.

As we get into Wednesday, a slow-moving cold front will start to approach from the west. The front likely won’t move through until Thursday night or Friday morning, but again, we’ll have warm and humid conditions in place, and the approaching front will help to trigger showers and thunderstorms both Wednesday afternoon and again Thursday afternoon. Some of these storms could become strong to severe, with gusty winds, hail and heavy downpours in some of the stronger storms. It’s not going to rain all day, but if you’ve got outdoor plans Wednesday and Thursday, keep an eye to the sky during the afternoon and evening both days.

The front finally pushes through early Friday, but an upper-level low pressure area will move across the Northeast. So, even though we’ll have some drier air moving in, a few pop-up showers and thunderstorms will be possible once again. High pressure then builds in for the weekend with cooler and drier conditions. In fact, temperatures could even end up a little below normal.
