Forecast Discussion

A nearly stationary front draped across the Ohio Valley and Mid-Atlantic states will remain to our north. A couple of upper level disturbances tracking along the southern edge of the westerlies will be the impetus for rounds of mostly-PM showers and thunderstorms over the next few afternoons across the local area.

A weak surface trough or front will move through late Thursday. Behind this feature, we are expecting a drier conclusion to the workweek (and the official start of the summer season).

A warm front will lift to the north of the state during the weekend, placing the Foothills in a rather hot, steamy air mass. That would be just on cue heading into the last week of June. As a result, the risk for showers and thundershowers will return.
