A weak storm started moving through today with clouds, a few spotty showers, and an isolated thunderstorm. Even though there is not much out there this evening, there is still a batch of rain and thunderstorms in Ohio and West Virginia that will be headed our way. The mountains will likely break a lot of them up, but there will probably be something left when they move through overnight.
This first storm will leave us tomorrow, just as another one moves our way. The warm front will slowly swing through tomorrow into Tuesday morning. Expect some clouds, spotty showers, and maybe a few thunderstorms as it does. It will keep temperatures down to near 80 degrees tomorrow as it is moving through. Then, when it pushes off to our north Tuesday, it will usher in a new round of hot and muggy air for the middle of the week.
Highs will jump back to the low 90s Wednesday, Thursday and maybe even Friday. And we will be talking about a heat index once again. At the same time, we will return to an unstable air mass with pop up afternoon/evening thunderstorms. There is the chance for these thunderstorms to develop all of Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. Late this week or early in the weekend, a new cold front will swing through and knock temperatures back down– at least temporarily.
Even though it has been feeling like summer for a while, summer officially begins this week. The summer solstice is Tuesday, June 21 at 1:16 p.m. That is also the day when we have the most amount of sunlight.
