Delightfully Warm Weekend

Great early June weather continues this weekend. Expect a good amount of sunshine and seasonably warm temperatures again Sunday. The next round of rain, enhanced somewhat due to a tropical flow in the wake of Cristobal, knocks on the door late Tuesday. But it's Wednesday when the bulk of it arrives. Enjoy!

Forecast Discussion

All is pleasantly quiet in the weather department until the middle of next week. A subtle front drops southwards through western NC Sunday. It really doesn't do much for us other than lower humidity levels leading to a cooler night Sunday night.

Tropical Storm Cristobal is on the move in the western Gulf. It makes landfall Sunday night along the Louisiana coast and gets caught up with an approaching cold front over Missouri Tuesday. Being such a broad system, high clouds will spread northeast from the low Sunday night and Monday and arrive here.

The remnant low tracks to the western Great Lakes and all the way up to the southern fringe of Hudson Bay Wednesday. A southerly flow south of the low entrains tropical moisture ahead of the front Tuesday and Wednesday. A few showers develop late Tuesday, but the bulk of our rain is Wednesday afternoon and Wednesday night. The front moves through early Thursday and there could be a couple of lingering showers that morning Otherwise, cooler and less muggy air is the takeaway by the end of next week.
