StormTracker Morning Forecast…

Today: We’re in a typical summer weather pattern for the next few days. It’s going to be hot, very muggy and we’ll see spotty thunderstorms. Rain chance is around 30%. Any storm that develops will have the potential to produce gusty wind, frequent lightning, and heavy rain. High temperatures will be in the low to mid 90s, but it will feel like the 100s.

Tonight: Mainly quiet with passing clouds. Low near 76.

Tuesday: Rain chance is around 20-30% with highs in the low to mid 90s. Typical summer weather pattern with storms in the afternoon. Feels like temperatures in the 100s.

Wednesday: Another plume of Saharan Dust will arrive late Tuesday/Wednesday and stay until Thursday. This plume will not be as thick as the previous. We will need to monitor air quality for those with respiratory issues. Mostly dry and hazy with highs in the low and mid 90s, but it will feel well into the 100s. Rain chance is 20%.

Thursday: Hazy skies with only slight rain chances. Highs in the low and mid 90s, but it will feel much hotter.

Friday: A storm system will begin to move into the region. A cut off low and deep tropical moisture will lead to higher rain chances starting Friday and lasting through the 4th of July weekend. Rain chance is around 40-50%. Highs in the low and mid 90s.

4th of July/Saturday: Showers and storms are likely at times. Rain chance is currently at 60%. It will not be a total washout, but if you have outdoor plans, have that plan b ready to go. Highs in the low and mid 90s, but it will feel much hotter.

Sunday: Showers and storms are likely at times. Rain chance is currently at 50%. High near 91, but it will feel much hotter.

Tracking the Tropics: There are two areas in the Atlantic Basin that are being monitored by the NHC. Both have low chances to form.
