Wednesday June 17 2020

This morning’s visible satellite shows the upper level cut off Low over North Carolina. This is responsible for bringing back the clouds and pumping in the humid air off of the Atlantic. This is a slow moving system that will be drifting north for the rest of the week.  Today will be the coolest day, then a shift to warmer air with a hint of mugginess.

Computer models have a tough time with these types of patterns, so it’s best to plan for a chance of showers each day for the next week. The best chance for showers will be in the afternoons and evenings.

Morning Visible Satellite

This looked so pretty, I really didn’t want to draw on it. But I did want too highlight the air flow. See the loop in motion below.

Visible Satellite Loop

Watch the circulation around that Low in North Carolina. Besides this gorgeous loop at sunrise, we can see it is barely moving.

Notice the drift to the north. There may be more rain coverage than the model shows here. This is to get the idea of the pattern drifting north.

Rain Outlook Animation 

The pattern will become more ambiguous into next week. With less focus on an organized system, there will be scattered showers and storms. Most likely in the afternoons and evenings.
