Wednesday Weather Discussion: Stagnant weather pattern continues; Warm temperatures and high humidity.

Good Wednesday to everyone across the region…a very abnormally warm and humid weather pattern continues today.


When you head out the door for the morning commute be on the lookout for patchy fog due to the abundant moisture in place. Once the fog breaks we’ll see a mix of sun and clouds. A few stray showers are possible as well but it should be less coverage than we saw Tuesday afternoon. Temperatures again will be well above normal (80’s).


On Thursday a frontal boundary will approach the Carolinas, it may results in additional shower coverage with continued warm and muggy conditions in the 80’s. The front will pass on Thursday evening and southerly winds will veer around to the northeast.


That wind shift will have a big influence in the Friday weather picture. We may see a lot more in the way of clouds to end the work week and more importantly a cooler temperature grid. Some of the guidance that we used has indicated a minimal temperature change on Friday due to clouds and some mist/drizzle…right now we’re leaning toward low/mid 70’s but those numbers may have to be trimmed even further if guidance continues its trend.


Saturday and Sunday right now looks to be pretty nice region-wide with temperatures rebounding back close to the 80 degree mark under partly cloudy skies. It’s still on the humid side but it should remain dry for the most part. Once we get to the end of the weekend, another frontal boundary will be crossing the Mississippi River and heading toward the Eastern US…it’s this front could finally end this prolonged warm spell next week.


Have a great Wednesday!
