Transition to Warm and Dry

The big story in our forecast is a resilient, warm, dry ridge building in the Southeast. Warm and dry will dominate our weather after Wednesday. But we are in the transformation period today with lots of clouds and widely scattered PM showers and thundershowers.

Forecast Discussion

Our weather is about to become impressively simple... A monster warm, dry ridge builds in the Southeast U. S. We'll be in the middle of that ridge; the battleground becomes the periphery: Maine to the Northern Lakes to Texas and the Western Gulf of Mexico.

Temperatures today may be the coolest we'll see until September or October. However, we won't really "feel the heat" until next week when most valleys break into the 80s for high temperatures. Let summer begin in the Southeast!

Today and tomorrow are transition days. A front just to our west and south is fading off the map. Today, we have lots of clouds with widely scattered afternoon and early evening showers and thundershowers. Wednesday has a barely worth mentioning chance of an isolated shower. The next ever-so-slight chance of an afternoon thundershower will be next Monday, but that chance is so small, I did not include that mention in the forecast box. We'll be begging for rain before this long warm, dry spell is over.
