  • Sunny and comfortable on Wednesday
  • Heat and humidity builds back in for the end of the week
  • Watching a front for the weekend

Skies remain dry with lows in in the mid 60s overnight. Look for a comfortable start to Wednesday with low humidity.

MID-WEEK OUTLOOK

Wednesday will be partly sunny with afternoon highs in the mid 80s. Temperatures will continue to soar back into the 90s for the second half of the week. By Thursday we are expecting 80s and even some low 90s to make an appearance under partly sunny skies. The humidity will continue to increase through the end of the week, becoming more uncomfortable by the holiday weekend.

Temperatures get back into the 90s by Thursday.

HOLIDAY WEEKEND

Right now models are pointing towards a front moving through this weekend. Of course this is still far out and models do vary, but rain chances could be increasing through the weekend. It looks like the best chance of storms will be on Sunday. We’ll continue to watch this through the week and have a better idea on timing. Realistically, you should plan for the possibility of storms Sunday and/or Monday.

TRACKING THE TROPICS

Right now our area will not see any impacts from tropical systems. The Atlantic is becoming more active, and it is possible within the next 5 days two new tropical systems may form. The first is a system that is making its way towards the Caribbean Sea and could become Tropical Storm Bonnie on Tuesday. We will continue to monitor this system from afar.

Here's the latest on the tropical system.

Another system is that we will need to watch is still in the Atlantic, but this one could take a more Northerly path. We will watch these closely.
