Good Tuesday morning! I hope you had a great weekend and your Monday started off well. Mine has been pretty good, just getting into the swing of things now that I won’t be going back and forth to Seattle anymore for my son’s treatments. But man, it needs to stop raining. Look at rainfall since Saturday.
On average, most of us have had 5-10″ of rain. Some areas a little more. So flash flooding will continue to be a concern the next few days. Sadly, we still have 2-3 more days with this. Scattered thunderstorms are going to continue. On Tuesday, not as widespread as Monday. Most of us got rain on Monday, but I think Tuesday it will be about 1/2 of us as it will be more scattered but definitely out there.
When we aren’t seeing rain, I think partly sunny and mid 80s with the humidity making it feel muggy. By Wednesday, the rain becomes more widespread. So about 70-80% of the area will see rain.
I don’t expect much severe weather with these the next few days. Just good old storms. Chances taper on Thursday and Friday, but I think we will easily see another 1-4″ on average of rain this week, ugh. But we do have changes. A system sweeps across the Great Lakes Friday and Saturday. This pushes all this rain out of here and gives us great holiday weekend temperatures.
So right now the 4th looks great! But we heat up again next week. Long range forecast is below.
Next Week: The heat and humidity kick back in. Pop up storms return as well Wednesday through Saturday.
July 11th- 17th: A little cooler to start the week. Rain chances on Sunday and Monday. Heating up the second half of the week. Rain chances sticking around.
July 18th-24th: A warm start and hot finish once again. Also rain chances each day again.
July 25th-31st: Hot and mainly dry all week long.
