For the third week in a row, we remain locked into a very unsettled weather pattern. We’re already seeing numerous showers and storms to our southwest that will be moving in within the next couple of hours. If you plan on going out for lunch, you better prepare for rain.
Showers and storms will continue off-and-on tomorrow, though they should be less widespread than today. Wednesday looks to be the driest day of the week , but we still can’t rule out a stray shower or storm. Rain chances tick back up for Thursday and those chances will remain with us, at about 50% coverage, through Friday. Right now, the weekend looks a bit drier but it’s a bit too far out to know anything for sure.
We’re now a week away from the eclipse! Models are looking a bit better for that day now. It looks like we may get a break just in time to see the eclipse. I’ll keep you posted as we go through the week. Fingers crossed!
Yesterday, Tropical Storm Gert formed in the Atlantic. The storm is expected to become a hurricane tomorrow, though it will stay out to sea and not affect the US. We will soon have yet another tropical storm (it’s that time of year!) and it will need to be watched. Currently, it’s just a disturbance off the coast of Africa but all models steer it into the Caribbean by next weekend. I’ll keep an eye on it!
We’re coming up on some significant hurricane anniversaries. The last two weeks of August and the first two weeks of September are notorious for historical landfalls. I’ll share those as we come to them. There are some incredible stories from these storms, and you’ll wonder why anyone would ever live on the coast.
You all have a great day and try to stay dry!
