August 2nd, 2012 Forecast

Thunderstorms will be a part of our region's landscape for the next several hours, with the prospect for heavy downpours and perhaps some localized flooding in spots in the heaviest of downpours.  Storms will gradually diminish after sunset and more or less fizzle around or after Midnight in the region.  Some spots could pick up an inch, perhaps two inches of rain before the day is out today.  The disturbance responsible for today's storms will push east and off the coast tonight, bringing a nicer day for Thursday.   While there could be a storm or two that pop up in daytime heating, the odds of this happening are lower.

There could be some morning fog tomorrow around the region but as a drier atmosphere works in fog should quickly burn off, leaving a mostly sunny sky for the balance of Thursday outside of any stray pop up storms.

Tonight's lows drop into the 60's in the outlying burbs, low 70's in the city and along the coast.  Highs tomorrow will range from the upper 80's to lower 90's throughout the region.  Assuming we hit 90 tomorrow, we probably begin another stretch of 90 degree weather that will likely last until Sunday, perhaps Monday.
