PM Showers & Storms

The start of astronomical summer was at 6:07am this morning and it has certainly felt like it for the last week or so. A good dose of PM showers and storms today and Friday dowses the heat to some extent. Fortunately the weekend isn't as wet allowing ample opportunities to enjoy the outdoors. The trend towards drier (though not completely) continues through the first half of next week.

Forecast Discussion

A front approaches from the west today and Friday coupled with strong upper level support. The result is for good coverage of PM showers and storms today and tomorrow. The timing is good as we're kind of due for a couple of stormy and less warm days. Plus it gets out of here in time for the weekend.

That being said the weekend isn't totally dry. We'll contend with isolated pop-up showers Saturday and a few more Sunday as a second front approaches from the north. Overall it doesn't warrant a change in outdoor plans, just make sure to have a back-up.

The aforementioned secondary front slips through Monday with another round of widely scattered showers and storms. Thereafter we've cautiously leaned towards a dry forecast as high pressure builds over the Mid-Atlantic. Humidity levels come down a notch too which can be a rare treat in late June.
