The week ahead: Warm, humid, unsettled

/ June 7, 2020 at 10:23 PM

June in Charleston is typically characterized by afternoon thunderstorms and highs in the upper 80s, and this week will not disappoint in either department. We’re caught between Atlantic high pressure and the broad circulation of Tropical Storm Cristobal, putting us within a corridor of deep moisture which will help drive scattered showers and thunderstorms each afternoon to start the week. All the while, a stalled frontal boundary will be hanging around to our north, meandering for the next several days and acting as another focal point for showers and storms. As we get into the weekend, another front approaches. As we so often see in the warm season, though, the front looks to have a hard time getting through the area, keeping us in the soup with scattered afternoon thunderstorms through Sunday.
