Forecast Last Updated at Monday, August 31, 2015 at 7:01AM

Clouds Today; Not Much Rain

Warmth and humidity are turned up slightly this week. But triggers for showers are difficult to find. We'll have warm, humid conditions with only isolated, mostly afternoon showers and thundershowers through Thursday (maybe a slight increase in the action Wednesday compared to the other three days). Friday through the weekend has more clouds, temperatures less warm, and greater coverage of showers/thundershowers.

Forecast Discussion

Erika was torn up by an unfavorable environment and interaction with islands this weekend. Fred is way out there, not a factor and never will be for us. We are in a stagnant late Summer pattern.

High pressure is planted in the Eastern U. S. with tropical warmth/moisture increasing; however, triggering mechanism for rain are lacking. Expect relatively warm, muggy conditions for late August and early September with only isolated afternoon showers and thundershowers. A disturbance well to our north Wednesday could add a little coverage Wednesday.

Friday through the weekend, the weather map reconfigures into more a wedge look (high pressure centered in the Northeast wedging down the Appalachians). As a result, we'll have gradually cooler temperatures, more clouds, and increased coverage of mostly afternoon and evening showers and thundershowers.
