Summertime Pattern

Posted: Updated:

July 17



Today there is a LPS over the GLR that is moving toward New England. Along the East Coast Scattered showers and thunderstorms are expected and there is a Ridge of High Pressure over parts of the gulf Coast.
To read our latest Tropical Outlook, follow the link below to the Hurricane Center.

There is a Ridge of High Pressure that is anchored over the Lower Mississippi River Valley. With High Pressure, comes clear skies and low rain chances with temperatures able to reach much higher values during the afternoon hours. So, we will only see a slight chance for showers and thunderstorms, this afternoon. This Ridge will remain anchored over the area during the next couple of days and we will see these conditions continue. However, we can expect to see fair rain chances during the later part of the work week and into the weekend as this ridge begins to break down. Winds will be light and variable with high humidity values.

For the rest of the day
Expect mostly sunny to partly cloudy skies with In & Out cloud cover and a slight chance for showers and thunderstorms through the afternoon and early evening. Temperatures will range from the upper 80's to the Mid 90'w with high humidity values making it feel more like temperatures are above the Century mark. Most of the viewing area will see partly cloudy skies with only a few, isolated showers. As of 12:00pm, there was not any rain in the area. Winds will remain light to moderate and out of the South throughout the day. Overnight, expect some clearing with tapering rain chances and a muggy feel.

For the rest of the 7day planner
Low rain chances will remain on the board through mid-week as the setup will not chance much. Come the later part of the work week, we will see rain chances go up slightly with decreasing chances for the weekend. High temperatures will remain in a seasonal range through the 7day planner. However, high humidity values will make conditions feel much hotter than they are. Peak Heat Index values may reach 180.
TODAY...Throughout the day, expect mostly sunny to partly cloudy skies and seasonally hot conditions with a slight (30%) chance of showers and thunderstorms. Highs 91-97. The peak heat index may reach 105. South wind 3-8 mph.


TUESDAY NIGHT...Fair skies and a bit muggy. Lows 7-7. South, becoming SW wind 2-8mph.
