Cooler rest of week, chance of showers
An upper-level low that is cutoff from the rest of the flow will flare up showers, even a few storms, the next couple of days. These showers will be widely scattered, and we are not expecting any severe weather at this point. The precipitation will be driven from instability, or if any sunshine can be spawned from the breaks in the clouds. With this, don’t expect widespread showers or thunderstorms, but popcorn variety showers and storms instead.
This is rain that is actually needed. We have gone five days, six if you count today, without any measurable rainfall. We are about 0.26” below average for this month and over an inch of rain below average if you include last month, too. The scattered shower threat will continue tonight and into Thursday before coming to an end by week’s end.
If you don’t see a lot of shower activity today, you will see cloud cover and temperatures running a little cooler than what was felt and see early this week. Highs will range from the upper 70s to lower 80s the rest of the work week. As sunshine returns for the weekend, daytime temps jump into the low to mid 80s.
