The week ahead: Unsettled pattern persists

/ August 9, 2020 at 9:45 PM

High pressure in the Atlantic and low pressure inland will keep the squeeze on for showers and thunderstorms each afternoon this week. Temperatures will top out in the upper 80s to around 90° each day before the onset of thunderstorms cools some of us down.

Thunderstorms will move slowly and thus have the potential to put down some pretty good rainfall, especially as we start the week, so be ready for localized flooding where storms set up. Lightning will certainly be a hazard as well, but the threat for severe weather otherwise remains low (though a wet microburst can never be ruled out).

The good news? No imminent tropical threats. ?
