Daily Weather Briefing for Monday, August 5, 2019





Outlook

A persistent upper-level trough will support afternoon showers and thunderstorms each day into the early part of the week. Moisture will remain high over the next few days, which will maintain the threat of locally heavy rainfall and isolated flooding.

Local Government Meeting


The Franklin Town Council will hold their regular monthly meeting for August 2019 tonight at 6pm in the lower level of the town hall. The public agenda and agenda packet are posted at https://thunderpigblog.blogspot.com/2019/08/franklin-town-council-to-meet-tonight.html A video will be added to the article later this week if there is not enough internet bandwidth to support a live stream.

Numerous showers and thunderstorms are expected again today. Localized flooding will be the main threat from these storms, mainly in locations that experience multiple storms.

**Note** A Tropical Weather Outlook section has been added to the daily weather briefing for the Atlantic Hurricane Season, and since those tend to run long when there is activity, that section has been added between the daily forecasts for the four regions of the county and the almanac section so people can get to their daily forecasts with minimal interference.
