Did you enjoy conditions yesterday? Sunny skies stick around today with temperatures a few degrees warmer. We'll also throw in an isolated shower or two this afternoon. While the majority of us will stay dry, we do need to look out for the UV rays. Again, it is in the high category with indices in the 8 and 9 range.
As seen from model guidance, things stay somewhat mild again today. Afternoon shower chances do begin popping up Wednesday and Thursday, but these will be scattered. Friday looks to be the best day for widespread activity, but still, not everyone looks to get wet. A high pressure system will develop to the north later this week as a wave of energy rolls through the south. Because of this, shower activity will be hit or miss. We upped the forecast "Weekly Forecast" but will look to likely tone it down a bit this afternoon.
The good news is a secondary front will keep temperatures cooler than average Wednesday and the second half of the week. The average high for mid-August falls in the upper 80's and guidance is suggesting temperatures 4 to 8 degrees below that across the eastern region.
As always we'll keep you posted on the latest! Enjoy today before humidity values rise and the chance for rain returns.
