MM’s Wx Vlog

This Week’s Hazards

Wx Summary

Clouds, sprinkles, perhaps an isolated shower or storm are in store for our Wednesday. By Thursday, drier air will have filtered into the region, giving us lots of sunshine and a dry day. That won’t last long, as our next system will be gearing up to move in for Friday. At this time, it looks like the bulk of that precip will arrive Friday night, though there are certainly chances for scattered and storms through the day. Some of that rainfall could be heavy. The weekend is looking on the wet side, with a good coverage of scattered showers and thunderstorms.

Five-Day Outlook

Weather Forecast

Wednesday: Mostly cloudy, with a chance for isolated showers and storms.

Thursday: Partly cloudy.

Friday: Scattered showers and thunderstorms, increasing in coverage and intensity overnight. Overnight rainfall could be heavy.

Saturday & Sunday: Rain and thunderstorms likely. Some of the rainfall could be heavy.

HRRR Radar Model

This radar simulation runs from 9:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. Activity, as shown here, should be isolated.

Hurricane Forecast 

The tropics remain very active but nothing is a threat to the U.S. mainland at this time. Danielle continues to spin out to sea and Earl will be on her heals. Earl is expected to become the season’s first major hurricane by Thursday night. Another area of concern is the orange-shaded region, but it also looks to stay at sea. The yellow-shaded region will have be watched over the next 7-10 days. It’s too soon to know if it will affect the U.S., should it develop.
