More Rain on Tuesday

After a round of heavy rains for some on Sunday, showers and t-storms have been even a bit more numerous around the area today. While we haven’t seen any severe weather today, some of the storms have dumped 1 to 2 inches of rainfall in a short amount of time.

Our wet weather pattern is compliments of Gulf moisture surging inland between an upper-low to our west and high pressure centered off to our northeast. With that pattern expected to remain in place on Tuesday, look for another day of fairly widespread shower and t-storm activity. Many WAFB neighborhoods may not get out of the 80°s, but with a little sunshine, highs could easily hit 90° before any wet weather arrives.

The remainder of the week should be somewhat drier as the upper low moves farther away and high pressure builds in from the east. We’re not talking completely dry, but daily rain chances should run 20% to 30% each day from Wednesday into Friday.

Looking ahead, early indications are that we should see fairly typical summer weather for the weekend – scattered, mainly afternoon showers and t-storms, with highs in the lower 90°s.

And we’re happy to report that for now, the tropics remain quiet!
