Weather Forecast: August 6 – August 12

Weather Forecast: August 6 – August 12

An upper level disturbance will bring a chance of precipitation across the region today. There will also be a chance of precipitation for the very southern portions of our state Saturday, associated with another 500 mb disturbance. Our upper level wind pattern has transitioned from northwest to zonal flow. This will continue to keep our temperatures near to slightly below monthly normal at most locations through the end of the week.  A ridge should begin to build over the area next week bringing with it warmer and drier weather. Temperatures should rise well into the 80’s by the end of the period for the majority of the region.


The projected Growing Degree Days (GDDs), base 34°, 44° and 50° F, as well as the projected hours of relative humidity over 85% for the period August 6 through August 12, 2015 are presented in the figures below.
