Forecast – for Jul. 29, 2010

It is looking like the first half of this forecast period will be warm and unsettled. The weather models are showing several chances of showers and thunderstorms as a couple of small areas of low pressure move through our forecast region.

The first of these lows is forecasted to move through around Friday with a second low expected on Sunday. Both of these lows will bring with them a mix of sun and clouds along with a good chance of showers and thunderstorms. Temperatures during this period should be on the warm side as the southerly flow ahead of each low brings in nice warm air.

In last week’s forecast the models were pointing to a large area of high pressure building in during this week, but now the models have it trying to build in for next week. As the high begins to build in from the west we will find ourselves in a northerly flow which will mean a cooler start to the week with high temperatures only making it into the low 20s.

This area of high pressure should result in mainly sunny skies for most of next week. We will likely see scattered afternoon clouds on Monday and Tuesday with colder air in place but after that the high should take over giving us mainly sunny skies all day. Temperatures under the sunshine will slowly warm with high temperatures expected to be in the mid to upper 20s by the middle to second half of next week.

Usual temperature range for this period: Highs:21 to 31 C Lows:9 to 17 C
