MM’s Tues Wx Forecast for Aug 23

In the above image taken in Port Campbell National Park, Victoria, Australia, seven 15-second images of the ground and de-rotated sky were digitally added to bring up the needed light and detail. In the foreground lies Loch Ard Gorge, named after a ship that tragically ran aground in 1878. The two rocks pictured are the remnants of a collapsed arch and are named Tom and Eva after the only two people who survived that Loch Ard ship wreck. A close inspection of the water just before the rocks will show reflections and shadows in light thrown by our Milky Way galaxy. Low clouds are visible moving through the serene scene.

Wx Summary

The front that passed through yesterday morning is bringing in some nice weather for both today and tomorrow. By Thursday, that weakening front begins to drift back to the north. That will increase shower and storm chances. Right now, the majority of guidance indicates those rain chances will be low, though that could change. Rain chances are currently set at around 20%.
