WEATHER BEAT: Thunderstorms Return Wednesday,Thursday

| June 11, 2013 | 0 Comments | Weather

Last Friday, we saw a lot of rain associated with Tropical Storm Andrea. Some places saw anywhere from 2-4 inches of rain locally. As of now, Andrea has moved on and is pretty much now nonexistent at this point.

We also saw a good amount of rain showers and thunderstorms on Monday, which brought quite a bit more rain to the region. Before all of this rain, we had a 3.5-inch rainfall deficit. As of now, that rainfall deficit has been reduced to under an inch. The only problem is that it is not necessarily a good thing to get it all at once.

For the next few days, the chance for thunderstorms continues to exist. I expect to see highs in the low to mid 80s for much of the week. On Tuesday, I am expecting a few thunderstorms in the morning, but quickly drying out, and we could see some sun by Tuesday afternoon. Wednesday looks dry in the morning, but a few more storms begin to pop up Wednesday night into Thursday morning. Thunderstorms could persist into the day on Thursday. Some of those storms could once again become severe.

As of right now, the weekend looks sunny and dry. I think by that point, we will be happy about that. The weekend should be very typical of June with plenty of sunshine and highs in the low 80s.

I hope everybody does not mind the thunderstorms. As long as nothing bad happens, I find them to be quite enjoyable.

“My favorite thing to do is study the weather. It is truly fascinating. Nothing beats a good thunderstorm. I became very interested in weather when I lived in Okinawa, Japan, for four years and was actually inside a super typhoon.”
