Today we continue our drier stretch with temperatures continuing to warm up, highs in the upper 70s and low 80s are expected. At this point we are pumping in air from the south, which in part rises our temperatures and now our humidity too. High pressure makes it’s exit to our east opening the door for moisture to come pouring back into the area. Expect clouds to build with some showers possible by the overnight hours as we increase the heat and humidity. For the most part though, the day will be dry.
There is a small severe threat through our northern counties as we head into the Wednesday evening. Gusty winds will be the primary concern. Since we aren’t expecting much in terms of rain or storms in general, the severe threat it pretty small for our area.
Thursday we get back to near 80, with our first chances to see rain and some thunderstorms return. These will mainly be during the afternoon hours. We will see some sunshine in between any showers and storms we see. It won’t be a complete washout, but you will want to keep an eye to the sky if you will be outdoors. We also have a severe threat across the entire area. A marginal risk (Level 1 of 5) is in place. Our primary threat is gusty winds associated with any storm that does form.
By Friday we continue to keep rain and thunderstorms in the forecast. For Friday severe storms are not expected but some gustier winds with a passing storm are to be expected still! Overall Friday see’s sunshine in between storms with temperatures topping out near 80 degrees again.
Looking towards the weekend, Saturday brings a few more showers and storms before we dry out later in the day. Sunday we keep things dry with temperatures continuing to crank to near 80 degrees.
Starting out next week, another round of high pressure kicks in and we look to really turn up the heat across the area with temperatures reaching towards the mid 80s and possibly even higher!
At 9:35 am EDT Tropical Storm Cristobal made landfall in the Mexican State of Campeche with winds of 60 mph. While over land it is expected to weaken to a Tropical Depression by Friday morning. Tropical Storm Cristobal is expected to bring life threatening rains to the state of Campeche and surrounding areas as it will move slowly over the next few days before gaining speed while moving across the Gulf of Mexico. Those with interests along the Gulf Coast should continue to monitor this storm closely as it is expected to approach the Gulf Coast by this weekend. A lot of uncertainty still remains in the exact track at this time. Make sure you stay with us for all the latest updates!
Remember that severe weather season is now in full swing. Be sure you have two ways to receive alerts and warnings! NOAA Weather Radio is something we always recommend, and it makes a great gift too.
