July 6: Another Unsettled Day, Daily Links


Sick of this weather pattern yet?

More showers and thunderstorms in the forecast today, as the same slow-moving storm system that brought us yesterday’s and last night’s storms will gradually move to our east over the next 24 hours.  Once again, pinning down the precise timing and placement of the storms is pretty much impossible — this version of Futurecast did the best job yesterday, and the pattern it’s showing today and tonight looks reasonable:

The strongest storms could produce damaging straight-line winds, and localized flooding will be a concern as more heavy rain falls onto already-soggy ground.  The Storm Prediction Center has outlined a “Marginal Risk” for severe storms in all of the Midstate:

It will be warm and muggy in between the scattered storms, with even a limited amount of July sunshine pushing highs mostly into the low to mid 80s…but your hour-by-hour temperatures will be a function of whether it’s raining at the moment:

High temperatures Friday will top out around 90°:

Friday night’s storms shouldn’t last too long, and they should remain below severe limits:

It looks like we’ll dry out by Saturday afternoon, and remain mostly dry through the first half of next week!

Just a slight pop-up storm chance Sunday through Tuesday, with temperatures close to normal for the middle of summer:



After an Independence Day holiday hiatus, the nerd-links are back!
