THE WEEKEND

Welcome to the weekend! Overnight lows will be warm in the 60s and low 70s with a few clouds present. Saturday will remain quiet and warm with a few showers/storms possible in the afternoon-evening. The shower and storm chance is not widespread so most will remain rain free. Highs on Saturday will remain in the 80s again, but we will be considered hot for Sunday as highs push back up into the 90s for some hometowns. Also by Sunday we raise our precipitation chances as a cold front marches east. This could lead to formation of late afternoon showers and storms, but widespread showers are likely on Monday.

NEXT WEEK

Looks like Monday will start us off wet with scattered showers and thunderstorms. Temperatures will be much cooler with highs in the 70s and low 80s even into the middle of the work week. High pressure once again will dry us out by Tuesday with mostly sunny skies developing. We’ll also continue to get warmer and warmer later in the week. So by Thursday it is possible that the 90s could once again make a return to close out the month of June.

Temperatures will be cooler on both Monday and Tuesday thanks to a departing cold front.

TRACKING THE TROPICS

Right now our area will not see any impacts from tropical systems. The Atlantic is considered quiet now, but it is possible within the next 5 days a new tropical system may form. The National Hurricane Center has highlighted a system that could form off the coast of Africa. If this strengthens, it would be considered unusual for this time of year based on how far south it is.
