2 Tropical Storms/Depression & a Likely 3rd = Seasonably Hot, Humid…..with Storms HereJuly 5th, 2013 at 11:45 am by Chad Evans under Chad's WLFI Weather Blog
FOGGY MORNINGS, SCATTERED STORMS…………
Yesterday, it poured at a July 4th gather we attended at my wife’s aunt’s house near Brownsburg. On the south side of I-74 at Brownsburg, the pavement was wet with puddles & just north of I-74 interchange, pavement was dry. We also hit wet pavement in Boone County periodically. It was extremely hit or miss & any rain in our viewing area was isolated.
Today was the third morning with patchy/areas of dense fog & more is possible Saturday morning.
Today will feature cumulus towers, partly to mostly cloudy skies, highs well into the 80s & spotty storms with 25-30% coverage.
HEAT WAVE SANDWICH…………
We are sandwiched between two heat waves. With Heat Advisories & Excessive Heat Watches east & northeast of our area & extreme heat to the west, we are in the middle with pretty seasonable temperatures & humidity.
ACTIVE EASTERN PACIFIC & GULF WITH MOISTURE CONTINUING TO SURGE NORTHWARD…………
That said, there is A LOT disturbed weather in the Gulf & far eastern Pacific with one Tropical Depression, one Tropical Storm & the potential of a Tropical Depression/Storm developing in the central Gulf (which may head for Texas).
All of the moisture is being transported north in this very stagnant, tropical regime in the eastern U.S. So, scattered storms are the story for the next 8 days with highs generally in the upper 80s to near 90 moving in & lows only near 72 each night. High humidity will accompany the warmth each day.
Also, we will watch any storm cluster to our north & northwest, which may skim by us next week. Those will be more organized than the random scattered tropical showers & t’storms that come up from the south.
