Beryl says goodbye, isolated chances remain

As expected, the widespread rain associated with Beryl's remnants stayed to our south and east, leaving the Stateline with a few showers. Areas stretching from northeast Texas to southern Michigan have picked up 1"-4" over the last 24-48 hours.



Next, Beryl's remnants has its eyes set on the northeast, specially upstate New York, where a level 3 enhanced risk for severe weather is in place. Like the past two days, the atmosphere will be primed for supercells and a few tornadoes. 



Locally, severe weather will not be a concern. In fact, rain chances today will once again be isolated and tied to a separate upper-level disturbance. 

Those who do, however, get in on today's action can expect a heavy downpour or two. High temperatures his afternoon should be rather similar to Monday and Tuesday, reaching the lower 80s. Chances remain into the few hours of the night tonight, though we should dry out to a partly cloudy sky by daybreak. 

Rain chances will remain isolated in nature to round out the work week. However, it's during the Thursday - Friday time frame where the focus will turn from the recent rainfall to incoming heat. 

As of this morning, areas stretching from Arizona to Washington are under excessive heat warnings and have been for quite some time. The heat dome responsible for this kind of heat will spread eastward, allowing temperatures locally to climb into the beginning of next week. 

Temperatures  between Sunday and Tuesday will reach the low 90s, and with humidity levels spiking, heat indices will approach the century mark. Of course, the atmosphere will be loaded with moisture, resulting in the daily chance for storms. 

For the time being, the severe potential is low, though we'll have to monitor how things go on Saturday and then again Monday into Tuesday.
