August 10: Sticky Weather Continues, Daily Links

WEATHER

Not much day-to-day variation in the forecast for the rest of the work week…from a forecasting perspective, it feels a bit like this:
57HJL8u

It will be hot again today, with highs in the low 90s:
WEDNESDAY HIGHS
Factor in the humidity, and it will feel like the upper 90s:
WEDNESDAY HEAT INDEX
There’s a chance of storms again this afternoon, but it’s a lower chance compared to yesterday.  The HRRR model isn’t impressed, unless you live in southern Kentucky:

At best, you’re only looking at a lower-than-50-50 chance of storms in your neighborhood:

More of the same tomorrow and Friday, albeit with a slightly higher storm chance.  If you’re heading downtown for Live On The Green, be prepared for a passing shower — but I’m optimistic that the weather will be cooperative…the rain chances, anyway.  It will definitely be warm and muggy:

The storm chances will ramp up as we head through the weekend — as the storm chances go up, forecast high temperatures go down (the mugginess, though, isn’t going anywhere):

There are a few different factors leading me to forecast such high rain chances early next week, and I’ll go into more detail once the rain chances come into better focus.  For now, it’s sufficient to say I’m confident that we’re looking a pretty wet weather pattern for the first half of next week.  The European forecast model shows widespread rain accumulations of 2″-4″+ over the next 7 days, most of it in the Sunday-Tuesday time frame:
