August 10: Unsettled Weather Continues, Daily Links


Scattered showers and storms that developed in today’s warmth and humidity will fizzle after sunset, then we’re in for another warm and muggy night.  I wouldn’t worry about the rain chance if you’re heading out to Live On The Green — I’ll be there live during our evening newscasts, so say “hi” if you’re headed to Public Square Park!

Temperatures will drop to the low 70s by early Friday morning…

…then we’ll warm right back up to the mid to upper 80s by Friday afternoon:

Another decent chance of scattered storms will develop on Friday, even continuing into early Saturday morning:

I’ve talked about it before, but this type of weather pattern is hard to pin down — our better storm chances are triggered by little ripples in the atmosphere that the forecast models don’t handle well until maybe 48 hours in advance.  I say all of that to lead up to some pretty good news: it looks like most of the weekend is now trending in a drier direction, but that’s not set in stone just yet!  We’ll still leave a chance a spotty storms in the forecast on Sunday, with the next round of widespread rain moving in Sunday night and sticking around on Monday:

We’ll settle into a calmer pattern around the middle of next week.
