Weekend Outlook: July 30-August 3, 2020

We’ll have a little bit of everything in the next few days, warm temperatures, high humidity, low humidity, thunderstorms, and maybe a tropical system.

A cold front will slowly cross the region today, with warm and humid conditions ahead of it. The front may trigger a few showers and thunderstorms, somke of which could contain gusty winds and heavy downpours, but widespread severe weather is not expected.

Some thunderstorms may move across the region ahead of a cold front this afternoon and evening. Loop provided by WeatherBell.

The front may hang up near the South Coast early Friday, otherwise, everyone else should start to clear out with drier air settling in. High pressure builds in for the rest of the day on Friday and into Saturday with seasonably warm temperatures but comfortable humidity levels.

Low pressure starts to move toward the region on Sunday, with a war front bringing in more humid conditions, along with the possibility of some showers and thunderstorms. With some cloud cover it shouldn’t be as hot as recent days, but it will be quite warm.

This sets the stage for Monday, which is a VERY uncertain forecast at this time. We’ll need to keep an eye on what happens with Tropical Storm Isaias. Some models show the potential for the storm or its remnants to move up the coast either Monday or Tuesday. At this point, we really can’t rule out any scenario. It’s still too early to determine what, if any, impact it has up here, but we should start to get a better idea over the next couple of days. We’ll likely have multiple blog posts about Isaias between this evening and this week, so we’ll keep you informed.

Will Isaias head up the coast? It looks that way, but exactly where is still a question. Image providsed by WeatherBell.
