Clouds & Pleasant Temperatures

Tonight will have some cloudiness and maybe some isolated showers. More clouds will be with us on Wednesday along with widely-scattered showers & perhaps a thundershower. Thursday and Friday will feature more sunshine and warmer temperatures with just isolated PM thundershowers. For the all-important holiday weekend, it appears as though we will become entrenched in our typical summer weather pattern: Very warm and humid with scattered afternoon showers & thunderstorms.

Forecast Discussion

A nearly stationary front lies from the coastal Carolinas back into Alabama and Georgia. This will cause some isolated overnight showers and thundershowers.

A weak upper level disturbance passing through late Wednesday may wave-up the front a bit, providing an enhanced risk for midweek showers.

Thursday and Friday feature more sunshine and warmer temperatures. PM thundershowers will be renegade in nature.

Looking ahead to the holiday weekend, the Bermuda High sets up shop, while a cold front settles southward toward the Mason-Dixon line. This is a nice setup for scattered afternoon thundershowers Saturday through the Fourth (with perhaps the best coverage Sunday and Monday afternoons). Temperatures will be pretty close to normal for the holiday weekend.
