The week ahead is shaping up to be rather wet, especially the first half, including some potentially beneficial rainfall across Texas, Florida, and other parts of the south. 

The Northeast will also see scattered showers the first few days of the week, with thunderstorm chances also increasing by mid-week.  Windy with some blowing dust in the Southwest on Monday and Tuesday, and active thunderstorms around DEN look likely a few days this week as well.

Here are this week’s weather highlights:

  • For the DC-BWI-PHL-NYC corridor, unfortunately it looks like several days with the possibility for scattered showers and a few thunderstorms, from Monday through about Thursday (BWI, IAD, DCA, PHL, EWR, LGA, ISP, and HPN).  Currently it does not appear likely that any of these days will produce the type of severe weather that occurred last Friday in the DC-BWI area.
  • A cool and damp start to the week in New England, with showers off and on through about Thursday, and below normal temperatures, before drier and milder weather next weekend (BOS, MHT, PVD, BDL, and ALB).
  • Some needed rain appears in store for both Texas and Florida this week, as the combination of a stalled out frontal boundary and an unseasonably strong upper level storm system combine to provide daily chances for showers and storms.  While it won’t rain all the time, each day from Tuesday through about Friday will see decent rainfall chances for much of TX (HOU, AUS, SAT, DAL, AMA, and LBB) and FL (MCO, TPA, RSW, SRW, PBI, FLL, JAX, ECP, and PNS).
  • In the Southeast, there will also be plenty of thunderstorm chances, again most frequent during the first half of the week, including at ATL, BNA, LIT, MEM, BHM, HSV, MSY, JAN, GSP, CHS, and CLT.
  • Last but certainly not least, at DEN it looks like there may be a few days with some active thunderstorms in the area, primarily in the Monday through Thursday timeframe.
Have a great week!
