Afternoon Storms + Tropics Heating Up

Posted: Updated:

PM Storms:  Additional rain and storms will likely impact a portion of our area this afternoon and evening.  Compared to yesterday, the odds are that less towns/areas will see rain and storms today (most places were stormy and rainy yesterday).  Due to fairly strong forcing behind a cool front to our west and humidity in place, any storm that develops will be capable of producing high winds and intense lightning

We'll keep a close eye on storm development this afternoon and post warning information or cut into programming as needed.  Stay tuned for updates throughout the afternoon and evening.

Tropics Much More ActiveThe only chance for significant, steady rain this summer will come from an inland tropical cyclone producing widespread rain around here.  As you may know, it's been more than a year since we have seen a significant amount of rain from a land falling tropical system. 

Now that we are moving into the most active period of tropical weather, the ocean bares watching for possible impacts on our forecast.  As of now, a new tropical depression (T. D. 7) has formed east of the Dominican Republic and a well-organized tropical wave just off the African coast may be next in line to garner some attention.  These tropical systems seem to be lining up in such a way that it looks like we could have an active end to Hurricane Season.  We'll see.
