Tuesday: Shower and thunderstorm chances return
Showers and thunderstorms return to the forecast on Tuesday as a front sinks into the area and stalls out. A good bit of you should see at least some rain tomorrow and over the next few days as the stalled front continues to hang around with plenty of available moisture. Given the time of year, of course, not everyone will see the same amount of rain — some of you could see very little, while others may be crying “Uncle!” by the time the week is over. It all ultimately depends on small mesoscale accidents that are impossible to predict with more than an hour or two of lead time. On average, a half-inch to an inch of rain in spots through the end of the week looks pretty reasonable.
Showers and storms will keep us out of the 90s for the foreseeable future, too. Tuesday will run in the upper 80s, but we should see temperatures suppressed solidly in the mid-80s for the rest of the week with the ongoing unsettled pattern. It looks like we’ll keep elevated storm chances into the holiday weekend, too, so be thinking about a backup plan for your outdoor activities to celebrate the Fourth.
