Weather Outlook for July 12th


Posted: July 12, 2017

Unsettled weather with rather uncomfortable humidity levels will persist through the remainder of the week

A slow-moving frontal boundary to the north of the state will provide numerous showers and thunderstorms through the end of the week, with the most widespread activity likely later Thursday through Friday. Much of the weekend will be much drier with less humidity and cloud cover, though a stray shower or isolated thunderstorm cannot be completely ruled out. By Sunday evening, another frontal boundary will bring another round of showers and storms to the region through the early half of Monday. Temperatures through the middle of next week will be persistently near seasonal levels, with afternoon highs in the upper 70’s to upper 80’s and low temperatures in the 60’s. Given the persistent chances for rain through the next several days, much of the state should measure at least one-half to one inch of rain by next Tuesday with some areas seeing higher amounts in heavier showers and thunderstorms.

Through approximately the first half of meteorological summer (June 1-August 31), much of the state has seen temperatures and precipitation totals near seasonal levels. Current long-range forecast model guidance continues to indicate that temperatures and precipitation will continue to hover near seasonal levels through the end of August. While extremes of very dry or very wet conditions can be highly localized during the summer months, widespread drought or flooding/runoff issues for the state appear to be low through at least the rest of July.
