Good morning Cardinals!
Looking at the national picture there is still highly anomalous upper level ridging across the Eastern 2/3rd’s of the United States. This has resulted in the dramatic halt from Florence over the Carolinas this weekend. The remnants of Florence have begun to move northward due to interaction with a trough over the western Great Lakes that has pushed clouds and a slight chance of rain for eastern Indiana today.
Temperatures will be cooler than the weekend with highs in the low 80s because of the cloud cover from the remnants. Timing looks to be late afternoon for any “peak” chance of rain with most recent guidance suggesting the edge of measurable rain remains to our south and east here in Muncie.
Looking forward towards mid-week there are chances of rain and thunderstorms (or “general thunder”) Tuesday and Wednesday as a stalled frontal boundary shifts northward in a form of a warm front. Guidance keeps us dry with pop-up storms that are difficult to pin point more than a few hours out. Highs will remain in the mid to upper-80s through this period as well.
