Another humid day today with a lot of instability, however, there won’t be much of a trigger so activity looks to be isolated to scattered and garden variety type storms. An upper-level disturbance moves through the flow Wednesday.  This may lead to stronger storms. Thursday the ridge axis will be right over us and we should have a rain free, hot day.

As we head toward the end of the week, a weak closed low spinning over the Mississippi Valley will move northeast towards us.  At the same time, a surface low will form off the coast. This will brings more widespread showers and a couple of thunderstorms Friday and scattered showers and thunderstorms Saturday
