Rain chances will remain above average with locally heavy downpours this week. The upper pattern and the unusually high moisture values are combining to give us likely rain chances.  We remain on southern end of a broad eastern U.S. trough. The atmosphere stays very moist all week. Things get a little more scattered by the weekend as weak ridging builds in aloft. Rain chances could ramp back up again next week.

The National Hurricane Center is highlighting one area of interest in the Central Atlantic. This feature could slowly get better organized as it tracks westward over open waters. Otherwise, the tropics are not very active Despite the recent quiet spell in the tropics, we normally see an increase in tropical activity by late August. So, now is the time to prepare for the more significant part of the tropical season.
