Look for mostly sunny skies for Wednesday and comfortable conditions, especially for August. By Thursday, the frontal boundary that passed through early this week will begin to drift northward. The front is much weaker now and will only offer slight chances for mostly isolated activity through Friday. Slight chances for mainly afternoon showers and storms should continue into the weekend ahead. None of this is worth cancelling outdoor plans, but you will need to be mindful of that radar, just in case one of these moves into your area.
The tropics are beginning to get active! That activity will be monitored closely over the coming week for any indications of anything that could affect us down the road.

Past 24-Hour Precip Totals
There are now two areas to watch in the coming days. Both currently have low chances for development this week, but those chances could increase at any time. Both systems could take paths that lead to them toward the US, though it’s far too early to know for sure if or when that would occur.
