A look at the steering level
"Hey Mike, this weather is CRAZY!" I don't know how many times I have heard that over the years. That is the thing about the weather. The atmosphere is doing its job trying to keep balance and creates mayhem in order to maintain control. Last year at this time, many were wondering if it was ever going to rain. This year, people are wondering when it is going to stop.
In the short term, we'll have a bit of a pause. There could be a few showers and a rumble in the mountains and north today. The next upper-low over central Canada gradually slides to the east-southeast and brings moisture back into the picture on Sunday.
The heat dome over the south relaxes a bit, and blocking to the north and east subsides somewhat into next week, which will assist keeping the flow going, It may be a bit slow, but not like what we've seen here in the past week. We may get a dry stretch starting Wednesday for a couple of days, which is also encouraging, but not in time to salvage the holiday weekend.
