‘Scattered’ weather forecast to last for days

|

sooThe forecast for the weekend – and the next few days – is pretty much the same.

Scattered showers and thunderstorms. Party sunny. Partly cloudy.

The sometimes cloudy, sometimes sunny, sometimes dry and sometimes rainy forecast also has temperatures in the 80s through next week.

It’s not a bad forecast, not just the brilliant, sun-soaked one most people like to see during summer, especially on while on vacation.

The good news: few of these days are going to be total washouts.

Here’s the forecast for the next few days that sounds like an old record skipping on a turntable. Remember that?

Today: Scattered showers and thunderstorms, mainly between 10am and 1pm. Partly sunny, with a high near 82. South wind 7 to 14 mph. Chance of precipitation is 30%.

Tonight: Scattered showers and thunderstorms, mainly before 11pm. Mostly cloudy, with a low around 68. South wind 5 to 10 mph. Chance of precipitation is 30%.

Sunday: Scattered showers and thunderstorms, mainly after noon. Partly sunny, with a high near 80. South wind 5 to 10 mph. Chance of precipitation is 40%.

Sunday Night: Scattered showers and thunderstorms, then showers likely and possibly a thunderstorm after midnight. Patchy fog after midnight. Otherwise, mostly cloudy, with a low around 69. South wind 6 to 8 mph. Chance of precipitation is 60%. New rainfall amounts between a quarter and half of an inch possible.

Monday: A chance of showers and thunderstorms. Cloudy, with a high near 78. Southeast wind 7 to 9 mph. Chance of precipitation is 50%. New rainfall amounts between a quarter and half of an inch possible.

And it goes on and on with more of the same for the days ahead. Click here to see how little it changes.

Why is this happening? Hint … it’s got something to do with a “Bermuda High” and a “trough.” Check out the National Weather Service’s forecast discussion so you can impress (or bore) your friends with your weather knowledge during a backyard picnic.
