Soggy Work Week

AM Headlines:
  • Scattered Showers
  • Patchy AM Fog
  • Soggy Outlook for the week
Discussion:
A cold front will bring rounds of scattered showers and at times soaking rain to the region today. This morning expect patchy fog, low hanging clouds, and scattered showers. A few storms will be possible this afternoon with highs reaching the upper 70s to lower 80s. This front will stall with an upper level low in position to help feed moisture into the region over the next few days. This means days of soggy weather will be expected this week. As of now, there is a low-end chance of localized flooding for parts of the foothills and high country. Generally, 1-3″ of rain is expected through the end of the week. If you have outdoor plans, I would highly suggest you have a plan B in place with shower chances stretching into the weekend as well. This pattern will begin to break down over the weekend with a stronger front Sunday helping to kick out the wet weather.
Tropics Update:
Victor and Sam will continue to fade and are not a threat to the U.S. Hurricane Sam is a category 2 storm and will continue to push to the north over the next few days towards Greenland. Victor will dissipate over the next 24 hours. There is still one area to watch in the Bahamas over the next few days. Although it is not likely to become our next named storm, it could help aid in bringing even more rain to the region by the end of the week.
