Low Clouds Won't Likely Budge
Wow! It feels like summer! Warm southerly winds kept overnight temps in the mid 60s. The southerly flow is transporting moisture into the area, one in the form of clouds, which you can see if you look right in the middle of the satellite picture below. Low clouds that will likely keep us from warming to near 80 today. More like 74 or maybe even 72. Also, you may notice a more humid feel to the air as we go through tomorrow. That increase in humidity is the moisture that will pool along a frontal boundary that could be the spark for thunderstorms Thursday and Thursday night. Some of us would say we need the rain. Things are getting a little dusty and we are now just about a half inch above average in yearly rainfall. Currently we sit at 7.29 inches for the year.
Have a great day,

I have been hearing a lot about "Derechos"
Ive been told they are a like an MCS which I still think could be possibile with these storms coming Wendsday evening or Thursday. What is the difference between an MCS and a Derecho. Thanks
A derecho is almost always associated with the leading edge of an MCS. We will talk more about this as I can show you a live example. There is a chance of an MCS heading our way in the morning.
