Aug. 1, 2022: Well, that thunderstorm last night was quite something else! Most of us have gotten over an inch of rain between yesterday and this morning before 7 a.m. More rain is possible. Compared the central and southern U.S., thunderstorms are actually pretty rare around here. For as often as weather apps indicate a chance of a thunderstorm, in my experience, we may get 20 in a year. Compare that to the southeastern U.S., where the number is more like 100 per year.

Today and especially tonight, there is a chance for more. We will have a good chance for a shower or thundershower throughout today and tonight. Skies will be partly cloudy. Winds will be from the east at 15-20 mph and seas at 3-4 feet (1-1.3 meters). Tomorrow the chance of rain will mostly be in the morning with winds around 20 mph and seas at 3 feet. Wednesday will be a bit calmer with winds 15 mph and seas at 2 feet (.6 meters). The chance of rain will be overnight. The chance of rain goes up Friday and Saturday. Have a great week!
