First Warning Forecast: Heating Up & More Rain

Meteorologist Madeline Evans’ First Warning Forecast

Warmer air returns of the second half of the week. Highs will jump to near 90 and even breaking into the 90s on Wednesday. With a dew point near 70, it will feel like the mid to upper 90s tomorrow afternoon. We will see more sunshine mix in tomorrow but could still see scattered showers/storms fire up later in the day at a 30% chance.

 

Highs will remain in the mid 80s for the end of the work week. Expect partly to mostly sunny skies both Thursday and Friday. An isolated shower is possible but most areas should stay dry.

 

Father’s Day weekend is looking really nice. Highs both Saturday and Sunday will be in the low to mid 80s with a good bit of sunshine. Saturday we are only tracking a 10% chance of rain and 20% for Sunday.
 

Tonight: Mostly Cloudy, Isolated Showers (20%). Lows near 70. Winds: SE 5-15

Tomorrow: Partly Sunny, PM Showers/Storms (25%). Highs near 90. Winds: SW 5-15

Tropical Update

We are watching a large area of disorganized showers and thunderstorms over the western Caribbean Sea. This area of disturbed weather is expected to move west to northwest over Central America and the Yucatan Peninsula during the next couple of days. Little, if any, development is expected during that time. Environmental conditions could become slightly conducive for some development when the system moves into the southwestern Gulf of Mexico by the end of the week.

* Formation chance through 48 hours: Low (10%).

* Formation chance through 5 days: Low (20%).
