Are you starting to wonder when we’ll ever have a two or three-day streak of dry days? Me too. It sure isn’t going to happen this week. Rain and storm chances will be with us through Friday. Highs each day will be in the lower 80s. Humidity will be high, too, so keep that in mind if you’re outside working or exercising. I’m keeping my eye on a big complex of showers and storms in Arkansas this morning. Guess where it’s heading? If it holds together it should be arriving this evening sometime. Even if it doesn’t hold together, remnants from it will likely generate new showers/storms.
The tropics continue to show signs of increasing activity. We have a hurricane and three disturbances to watch! I’ll keep an eye on all of them and let you know as soon as any look to be a threat to the US. Look how active that map is getting! Notice that they’re all pointing in the direction of the US. Hopefully, that will change as we go through time. It’s been 12 years since the US had a major hurricane make landfall.
I have some very exciting news to share this morning. I’ve been invited by the Fentress Courier to write a weekly article for them about the weather! It’s a small paper, but I’m anxious to see where this goes. I appreciate all of you who have suggested I write more and for complimenting me on my weather tid-bits that I get to share with you here. I’m looking forward to seeing how the readers of the Courier like my weather stories. My first article publishes on Aug 23. I’ll let you know how it goes!
By the way, the models are looking better for the eclipse. It still looks trivial, with a slight chance of storms and partly cloudy skies, but it looks a bit better to me this morning. I’ll keep you posted!
