Today we will remain much cooler than we have seen most of the summer. Clouds will be on the increase and rains will fall in SW Va and start to overspread the area slowly during the next 24 hours. Sunday will be a showery day with rain and some thunderstorms. Rains will be welcome as much of the area remains gripped in a moderate drought with a few in sever conditions. See http://www.drought.unl.edu/dm/monitor.html for more information. Virginia is not expecting that much rain. See QPF prediction http://bit.ly/c71SnM .
Heat will return next week with highs in the 90 to 95 degree level. After the rains and storms pass through the next 24 to 36 hours the next chance at some thunderstorms will be Tuesday Wednesday, and Thursday but this will be the typical summer time risk of storms and nothing too organized.
The tropics have a couple areas of interest and they could develop. Next system would be names Colin.
I am hoping to be more active on posting as work and life get in better alignment!
All for now!
