The theme continues: warm, muggy and unsettled as the upper-level pattern does not change very much. We will be dealing with a broad trough across the Great Lakes retrograding back into the MS Valley by the middle of next week and two strong ridges, one over the West and the other just off the Eastern Seaboard.
We are caught in between, with a deep layer of southwesterly flow that continues to stream moisture out of the Gulf Coast and into our neighborhood. From time to time, upper-level disturbances embedded in the flow will bring us chances for showers and t-storms (particularly during the afternoon and evening hours).
Monday is expected to be a bit more active than Sunday at this point. Tuesday and Wednesday look to be fairly active as well, however the atmosphere should be more charged on Monday than any other day. This trend should begin to diminish Thursday, however forecast confidence remains low during this time period so we will continue to allow for PM t-storm and shower chances. #mdwx
