August keeps the Summertime Pattern

Today kicks off August and we can expect more of the same typical summertime weather. Afternoon showers and thunderstorms are in the forecast again today. Most of the activity will be along a front that is draped over part of the area. Therefore about 30 percent of the area will get rainfall today. If you are southeast of Interstate 65, you’ll have a better chance for storms today so keep an eye on the radar scan. The good news is that we are not expecting any severe weather.

Storms slowly diminish tonight as lows reach the mid 70’s. Humidity levels through the weekend will be a bit lower than what we saw two weekends ago with all the heat advisories. This means it will feel just a touch more comfortable but we still keep the chance for showers, especially along the coast. Sunday will once again have a 30 percent chance of rain.

We’ll be a bit drier as we begin the work week. Monday and Tuesday should be limited to only 20 percent of the area getting the chance for rainfall. However, the drier pattern won’t last for long. Our rain chances return a little closer to normal by the midweek. It will be a reminder that it’s still summer in August.
