Nighttime Clouds, Dampness

The weekend comes to a close on a damp note tonight. Scattered showers develop this evening and tonight as a disturbance moves in from the southwest. Showers exit by morning, then another round of widely scattered showers are possible Monday afternoon. Thereafter, we’ll see warmer temperatures through the week with daily chances for pop-up t-showers.

Forecast Discussion

Weak high pressure at the surface prevailed Sunday promoting mostly dry weather. That changes tonight as an upper level short wave disturbance moves northeast through the area. Expect showers to develop this evening and tonight.

The disturbance exits northeast Monday morning, leaving us with a period of dry weather Monday during the daytime. Residual moisture across the area could lead to a few more showers Monday afternoon.

The remainder of the week features warmer temperatures. This will promote higher instability and daily chances of pop-up PM thundershowers.

Former Tropical Storm Erika dissipated Saturday. It will approach Florida Wednesday as a tropical disturbance, and as such could provide our region with additional moisture, but how much remains to be seen. Meanwhile, Tropical Storm Fred has formed off the west coast of Africa, far from any land mass at this time.
