Today will feature cooler temps, a few more clouds, and the chance for showers and thunderstorms. All the aforementioned characteristics of today’s weather can be traced back to a seasonably strong upper level disturbance diving southeast out of Quebec. There are already some showers ongoing this morning; as of 7 AM they are impacting parts of the I-95 corridor north of Augusta as well as parts of the far northern mountains. Expect these showers to expand southeast as the rest of the morning goes on. As with yesterday, the best chance of showers will be in the north. Some will stray into southern areas, but they won’t be quite as numerous.
High temps today look to come in below what we’d expect for this time of year by several degrees. The mountains will stay in the mid to upper 60’s while the coastal plain only makes it a few degrees above 70. Overall humidity will be on the lower side, which will make this a great day to be outside. Just make sure you have a plan to head for cover if a storm pops up nearby. The stronger cells today will feature gusty winds, lightning, and small hail.
