A look at what's ahead.

Today will be "fishable", and a bit warmer. The weekend looks fantastic, so everybody enjoy it, and happy 4th of July!

NOTE: Due to the fact that the clouds have decided to not leave yet, there are currently no current visible satellite shots of the lake since June 28. As soon as I get a clear shot, I will post it and update this post.

Conditions look perfect today (though it's probably a total freak show as far as crowds go), but alas, too much on my desk, so to speak. :/

Have to make do with a few breaks to drop in here ... but the Cityfest later looks cool...

Interesting setup for this afternoon. At this time, it appears that storms will be firing along a weakening cold front sometime after 2:00PM. Some of these thunderstorms "may" approach severe levels with hail up to 1 inch in diameter, and damaging winds up to 60+mph. These storms will be "low topped", and won't be the powerhouse type like we saw the other week. Keep an eye to the sky everybody, and stay alert if you head out today. The storms will diminish after sundown.

Just another update for today's forecast. It appears now more and more that conditions are slowly becoming more favorable for severe thunderstorm development than earlier anticipations. Threats will remain the same as I stated up above, with only one minor additional threat. There is a slim chance of a brief tornado if any storms can pick up some rotation. Atmospheric dynamics are not "great" today, but they are just enough to get these storms going. I previously mentioned that these storms won't be powerhouse type storms like the other week due to their low topped nature, however, they will certainly be capable of such severe weather. It will be very isolated though if a storm does in fact get that strong again. Keep an eye to the sky everybody, and be alert to rapidly changing conditions quickly.

Storm, you should really start your own weather channel radio station with a marine frequency.
Keep up the great work. It's appreciated more than ALL of us express.

I know this keeps going back and forth lol, but now it appears too much cold air aloft has prevented thunderstorms from growing (developing) and reaching the heights needed to tap the stronger mid-level winds to get organized. That being said, there will still be a chance of isolated thunderstorms until sunset, with a strong storm or two still possible. Other than that, expect mid-upper 70's for temperatures and some cumulus clouds to hang around for a while. Beware of changing conditions everybody should they materialize suddenly, and enjoy the nice lovely day today.
