Some Heat Will Build, but Rainfall Potential Looking Spotty and SparseJune 26th, 2012 at 1:28 pm by Don Paul under 4 Warn Weather
With a deep area of low pressure to our east slowly moving out, a building ridge of warm high pressure will bulge eastward and bring above average temperatures back into WNY. Readings will move up sharply on Thursday, with some increase in humidity. There are some differences between models on the passage of weak short waves and the extent of the heating, but nothing extreme is likely. Some minimal cooling (still leaving us warm) will probably occur during the weekend, with the possibility of some spotty showers for a minority of Sunday. As has been mentioned in the previous thread, dry soil–especially north of the City–will allow temperatures to rise a little higher than modeled. There is no widespread precipitation potential currently in sight over the next 5-7 days. Of course, that could change in future model runs.
Tropical Storm Debby is likely to move a little more rapidly to the east than earlier models and ensembles had suggested, weakening to a depression over the FL peninsula and restrengthening to a tropical storm as it heads to the E and eventually NE over the Atlantic. As of Tuesday, Debby is sheared and showing slight weakening as it moves toward FL.
Earliest hints on the 4th; warm temperatures and too early to tell about precipitation.
