Isolated showers/storms this afternoon now popping just north of our counties in IN. A few may build down closer to Salem east into Madison before fading toward sunset. Elsewhere...dry.
Thursday looks quiet and warm...mid 80s.
Friday will feature our next feature on the maps. We have an approaching wave from the west in the NW flow and a staled front/trough to the east. The wave will swing in Friday afternoon/evening with a risk for a few showers and storms. The Gulf of Mexico however is not fully open for business. So this means coverage of rainfall will be limited.
Saturday the wave with be over us before merging with the stalled front to the east. Again, coverage looks limited but may be slightly higher than Friday...and may be limited to early in the day rather than late.
The weather then will slowly warm into early next week ...could even hit 90 a day or two, but nothing extreme is on the table. So it could be hot for the practice rounds for the PGA tourney.
Then we head toward that following weekend...near the 9th. There are growing signs that a quick hitting trough will swing through the region. GFS and EURO both have been showing this for a few days now.
This would mean a band of showers/storms that Friday or Saturday. Hard to pin down timing this year. This could affect the PGA certainly, but the benefit could be a cool day after the front passes. So it's a good news/bad news deal. We will watch that.
WAY LONGER TERM: GFS keeps hinting of a deeper trough around the 19th/20th. And enters the lower 48 a bit more west than the previous ones have been this summer.
EURO also was showing this if you saw my video blog post the other day, too.
So there is a chance for another significant cool down later this month.
Overall...August looks to continue our repeating pattern we have become accustomed to lately.
METEORS AND A "Supermoon"
It is that time of the year of for the Perseid's Meteor Shower. You can actually see a few starting tonight, but the peak will be will be near August 11th.
But...the bad news is we are expecting a full moon...and yet another "Supermoon". This may limit viewing due to brightness it appears.
So the ones the next few nights may be the easiest to see since we are lacking the bright moon right now.
The video below goes into much more detail...so watch if interested!!
