Changing weather, watching “Harvey”

The heat wave is ending and an extended period of below normal temperatures is on the way, even some temporary humidity relief.

A front passes today with only a few isolated thundershowers around before 6pm.

Drier air mass follows for a couple days, before the ole “wedge” pattern starts to form on the weekend into next week, with interaction from moisture from “Harvey”.

Flooding expected for TX and adjacent areas, how much rain we get from the indirect effects later next week depends on the still uncertain final path of the tropical system.

“Harvey” COULD, COULD eventually be a heavy rain factor for parts of Georgia but erratic path thanks to weak and complicated steering currents keep uncertainty high for now.
