A cold front has pushed south of the plateau, bringing us less humid and more pleasant weather for the start of our workweek. By Wednesday, the humidity begins returning, which means a return to the slightest risk for a thunderstorm in the afternoon. By Thursday that isolated storm chance increases to 20%. A storm system will approach from the west by Friday and that will bring scattered showers and storms to the region.

On This Day
1901 – There was a rain of fish from the sky at Tiller’s Ferry, South Carolina. Hundreds of fish were swimming between cotton rows after a heavy shower. (This was likely because a tornado had sucked up the fish earlier)
1929 – First color TV demo, performed by Bell Laboratories in New York City.
The tropics are very active! This is more like a map we’d see in August. One area of low pressure is being watched in the Gulf. It has only a 20% chance of development and will move toward Texas. The red-shaded region will become a tropical depression or storm by Tuesday night. The yellow-shaded region in the Atlantic will be monitored as it crosses the Atlantic and enters the Caribbean later this week.
