Hit-Or-Miss Thunder Continues
Sunshine prevailed through early afternoon, along with rather hot and humid conditions. Scattered showers and thunderstorms developed this afternoon, dying-off later in the evening hours. We expect even better shower and thunderstorm coverage on Wednesday, lingering into Thursday. Thereafter, we get a nice little reprieve with drier and somewhat cooler conditions for Friday and through next weekend.

Bermuda High pressure holds on for the next 24-48 hours before a couple of cold fronts impact the area. The first front moves through on Thursday, followed by a follow-up moisture-starved boundary early Friday.
Hit-or-miss PM showers and thunderstorms today will become a bit more concentrated in nature on Wednesday into Thursday until the front(s) clear the area.
The payoff will be a nice and somewhat rare mid-August reward, with lower humidities and cooler temperatures expected from Friday through next weekend, under mostly clear skies.
The pattern reloads next week with shower and thunderstorm potential increasing once again.
