Patrick Rockey’s Live VIPIR Forecast

After spectacular Sunday weather, things start to go downhill on Monday. Expect increasing clouds as we head through the day and a few stray showers are possible, mainly in the afternoon. Winds will shift to the south overnight, meaning you’ll feel more humidity than on Sunday. Expect high temperatures in the mid-to-upper 80s.

A cold front arrives on the scene Tuesday. Ahead of that front, a southwest wind will push temperatures into the upper 80s and lower 90s. As the front pushes through in the afternoon and evening hours, we can expect scattered showers and storms. A few of those storms could be on the strong-to-severe side.

Some of the wet weather may linger into the early part of Wednesday. But the trend is for the rain to move out and sunshine and milder weather to move in. In fact, we have a pretty spectacular stretch of August weather on the way through the rest of the work week and into the weekend. We’re looking at sunshine, blue skies and fairly comfortable temperatures.
