More Muggies

The heat and mugginess is going to be with us all week. However, there will be better opportunities for scattered PM showers and thunderstorms for the remainder of the workweek, and likely persisting through the upcoming weekend period as well. The rain won’t be unwelcome, as it only takes a few days of hot/dry weather to really take the moisture out of the soil.

The Golf-O-Meter has temporally become the Fest-O-Meter. RaysWeather.Com is the weather forecast partner of FloydFest, rated one of the best music festivals in the country. Floydfest happens next Wednesday through Sunday (July 27-31), just south of Floyd, VA. For festival details see FloydFest.Com.

Forecast Discussion

On the weather map, the Bermuda High is the main weather player for the local area. Additionally, a frontal system snakes from the Mid-Atlantic coast westward into the Ohio River Valley. The front does not stand much of a chance of making a push southward into the state, but it will be close enough to improve our chance for showers and thunderstorms over the coming days.

Since the front not does not have the penetrating power to come through here, we will undergo no air mass change. The only thing to cool us down will be more numerous showers and thunderstorms during the PM-hours, and the resulting increase in cloud cover. That will allow temperatures to settle down a couple degrees, plus more folks will be getting those cooling afternoon thundershowers to boot.

This time of year, weather features become more subtle and harder to discern, so there will probably be days with greater/lesser coverage of thundershowers. But at this point, we’re inclined to keep the same basic forecast going through next Sunday.
