Some showers are trying to make their way in from the southwest this evening — I don’t think it will wash out your evening plans, but some passing showers could wet things down a bit. We’ll see increasing rain chances tonight, especially after midnight, and the rain will likely be a factor for the Monday morning commute. The HRRR model’s radar simulation shows the showers spreading in, with the heaviest rain around sunrise Monday:
I can’t completely rule out a couple of strong wind gusts, but overall our severe weather potential is low. The storms could produce some heavy rainfall though, especially south of I-40…be watchful for standing water on the roads as you’re heading out tomorrow:
Temperatures tonight will drop to the low 70s, then we’ll only warm up to the low 80s by Monday afternoon:
Lingering showers and a few storms will still be possible Monday afternoon, but they won’t be as widespread as what we’ll see in the morning.
Looking farther ahead, Eclipse Day is looking a little better — still a chance of spotty storms, but that’s always a threat this time of year, especially so far in advance. The European forecast model (the most-reliable long-range model) shows just a slight storm chance…and of course, plenty of warmth and humidity. It’s still a very preliminary forecast, and of course we’ll keep you updated over the next eight days:
