Showers and storms to dodge

We certainly were lucky at the picnic yesterday! Thankfully, we only had to deal with one good shower and then it was an absolutely beautiful evening for a picnic! Today, there’ll be many more showers and storms around. I’m also keeping an eye on a system west of us that may bring some storms late this evening.  If this holds together, we could be dealing with some strong storms tonight.

Radar at 8:45 a.m.

That’s pretty much the way tomorrow is going to be too. We just have to be mindful of showers and storms. They won’t last all day and not everyone will get them. Unlike yesterday, today and tomorrow’s storms will have a lightning threat, so always be on the lookout for that. Nailing down particular timing of storms on Saturday is difficult, at best, but later in the afternoon and evening will be the best chance of seeing those.

On Sunday, things look drier, though we still can’t rule out an afternoon/evening shower or storm with the heat and humidity that will be around. Highs today and through the 4th will be in the low 80s but the humidity will be really high. At this time, it looks like the forecast for both Monday and Tuesday will feature hot and humid weather, with isolated afternoon/evening storms. That means that fireworks celebrations should be ok, as t-storm activity usually dies down significantly at sunset. I’ll keep an eye on it, though!

Don’t forget to check for weekend updates on the weather! I basically post my weather blog posts that you see here to that site through the week, so that others outside of TAP can see it, but you can’t get weekend updates here, so I post them on my personal blog. You can also follow me on Facebook!

Below is a pic I took over Lake Tansi during our picnic. We couldn’t have asked for better weather! You all have a great weekend!
