Look for another relatively cool day (much of the area had low temps. in the mid-upper 40s overnight) with a chance of a passing shower or isolated t-shower. With unseasonably cool air aloft, any thundershower (or even heavier shower) could contain some small hail and a wind gust to 30 mph. No severe weather is expected. We are in the General Thunderstorm Outlook from the Storm Prediction Center. The NAM (caribou) prints out 0.07″ of rain for G.R. today and the GFS-plot has 0.06″. The NAM MOS has highs of 73-75-79 for the next 3 days and the GFS is similar at 74/76/79. The GFS-plot has at least a chance of an afternoon shower each day thru Saturday. It takes highs to the low 80s over the weekend, but no 90 degrees thru 8/10. The European model also has small measurable rain totals each afternoon thru Saturday, then dry Sunday. The Euro. has highs in the 70s thru Thursday and low 80s Friday thru next Monday. Check out the links below:
