|GFS modeled 500 mb (18,000') height anomalies, valid late Wednesday night. Lower than normal pressure (indicated by light blue) over the Mid-South indicates a low pressure disturbance over the area, which brings our t'storm chances.|
|A Marginal Risk (category 1/5) severe weather risk exists Wednesday into Wednesday night for the metro. Widespread severe weather is NOT anticipated at this time.|
By Thursday, the disturbance will be exiting the region, but with the weak cold front near the area, scattered showers and thunderstorms will be possible Thursday and Friday before high pressure re-builds into the area heading into the weekend. The result will be slightly lower temperatures for the region from Thursday through Saturday. If you happen to get a thunderstorm during the daytime hours, you'll enjoy some relief from the heat, but also increased humidity. Most of Saturday and Sunday look dry and fairly comfortable for early August, though temps start climbing again as we head into early next week.
