Eary Sunday AM August 14th Update – Rain Chances Trying to Sneak Back In

Good early Sunday morning, everyone. I still can’t get over how great Saturday was. We got on the back side of our front after it gave us some rain and t-storms on Friday. Behind that front, we saw highs in the middle 80s for our Saturday afternoon. That’s more like a Saturday in early September instead of the middle of August! We’ll continue to stay a little cooler than normal this week, rain or shine.  Take a look at the radar below…

If you’re catching the radar before sunrise this morning, most of the showers on the radar are staying to our east and southeast. I wouldn’t be surprised if we had a stray shower or two based on our setup for today. The front that passed through on Friday is still hanging around the area…

With that front starting to lift back to the north in our area, we’ll definitely have partly sunny skies for our Sunday. With moisture riding along the front, we can’t rule out some widely scattered showers and t-storms by the afternoon. You can see the Future Track below keeps the better rain chances east of us, but I wouldn’t be surprised if we had a few t-storms to contend with today…

Rain or shine, we’ll still be on the back side of this front. That means after we start in the middle to upper 60s this morning, highs will still be a bit cooler than normal. Instead of seeing highs in the lower 90s (our normal for the middle of August), we’ll see highs bounce back into the middle 80s…

The front will still be around as we get the new work week (and school week for some of you kids). That means mostly cloudy skies for Monday and another shot for some scattered t-storms. Even though the better rain chances still want to stay east of us for Monday, I only see highs getting to about 80 under mostly cloudy skies for Monday afternoon…

We’ll still have a shot for a few spotty t-storms Tuesday and Wednesday as highs go back into the middle 80s. I see us dry for Thursday with highs pushing into the upper 80s before our next system works in for the coming weekend. Another front will want to sweep in for Friday and Saturday to give us our next best shot for t-storms.

If you’re curious about Doug’s latest thoughts on the pattern and how we look going into the upcomig fall (even winter) season, he has you covered over on headypattern.com

Have a good Sunday, everyone!

LONG RANGE FORECAST: Based off of the HP(Heady Pattern)

SLIGHT CHANCES:  MEAN IT IS A WEAKER SYSTEM THAT WILL GIVE US SCATTERED SHOWERS OR SNOW SHOWERS. 

IF I DON’T SAY SLIGHT:  THAT MEANS THIS IS A STRONGER SYSTEM

August 21st-27th:  A hot start to the week but a warm second half to the week.  Thunderstorm chances Sunday, Monday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday.
