-- Changed Discussion --
(Today and Tonight)...Summerlike pattern for the short term. NAM looks a bit overdone with instability for today...but still looks like enough convective energy to support scattered convection for much of the area especially after noon. Will confine slight chance PoPs to the southern valley...with chance PoPs elsewhere for today. After any evening showers and thunderstorms diminish...should be dry for remainder of tonight. MAV temps generally look reasonable so will stay close. .LONG TERM...(Saturday Through Thursday)... Region will generally be under the influence of the western side of the Bermuda High. Thus warm and humid conditions will prevail through the extended period, with daily rounds of primarily diurnal convection. The full impact of the tropical low remains to be seen, but model solutions continue to lean toward minimal contribution from it to the extant warm and muggy regime.
