The week did not start off pretty, plenty of low clouds, light rain drizzle. The atmosphere has plenty of moisture in it, in fact, it is above normal. Why no rain? No triggering mechanism other than daytime heating and something called upglide. The main action will happen out west tonight. I'll be keeping a watchful eye on the developments should any storm threaten our area.
Tuesday morning will start out with plenty of low clouds, fog, drizzle and light rain. Temperatures will be in the low 70s. The clouds and drizzle will be slow to mix out with southeast winds feeding additional moisture into the area. Lunchtime temperatures will approach 80. Rain chances will be low but the atmosphere will be water logged and there will be plenty of clouds as a result. Any break we get will simply destabilize the atmosphere and provide a trigger for showers to form. The chance of that happening will be low. Peak afternoon temperatures will be in the mid to upper 80s. Tuesday evening will be warm and humid. Temperatures will be slow to drop with all the moisture In the air.
Long term - a stronger system will approach late Wednesday into Thursday bringing better chances of rain and storms to the area that will last into the first part of the weekend. Conditions will favor the development of severe storms.
