We have today and probably tomorrow to appreciate some dry weather in the region as high pressure holds serve and keeps our humidity levels modest and temperatures that are pretty close to the seasonal averages for late July.
We close July dry but we don't start August that way -- a storm system will approach the region on Thursday and bring us showers and storms as a ripple of low pressure pushes towards the region from the southwest and crosses the region during the course of the day.
Some spots will pick up an inch of rain, perhaps two inches of rain, on Thursday. Odds favor the greatest chances of this to be northwest of the city as of now but that may change as we approach Thursday's event. Some localized flooding can't be ruled out in parts of the region, especially in those areas that pick up the highest rainfall totals.
