Monday Morning: Hot and very humid with scattered storms; Four areas to watch in Atlantic Basin

Weather

StormTracker Morning Forecast…

Today: Partly to mostly cloudy today with scattered showers and storms. Rain chance is around 40-50%, which means not all areas will see rain. Those that do see rain will be one of the lucky ones because it’s going to be hot and really humid. High temperatures will be in the lower 90s, but it will feel like 103°F-108°F.

Tonight: Mostly cloudy skies with lows in the mid and upper 70s. Very humid and uncomfortable.

Tuesday: Rain chances begin to take a dip, but that means the story will turn to the heat and humidity. Afternoon highs will climb into the mid 90s, but it will feel like the 100s. Rain chance is around 20%. Low near 75°F.

Wednesday: Mostly dry, hot, and very humid. High temperatures will be in the mid 90s, but it will feel like the 100s. Low near 73°F.

Thursday: Mostly dry and hot weather continues. Rain chance is only around 10%. High temperature will be near 93°F.

Friday: Tropical moisture may begin to move back into the region, which means rain chances begin to increase. Rain chance is currently around 30%. High near 93°F.

Weekend: Scattered showers and storms, but not all areas will see rain. Highs will be in the low and mid 90s. A weak cold front may try to the dip this far south, but some models have it dissipating before it does so. We will see.

Labor Day: Widely scattered showers and storms, but it’s all dependent on what happens with the aforementioned front.

Tracking the Tropics: Four tropical waves in the Atlantic have our attention. One wave (Invest 99L) has a high chance of becoming a tropical depression or tropical storm in the Caribbean. Models have it moving into Central America or Mexico thanks to high pressure over the Gulf, but time will tell. Two waves in the eastern Atlantic have our attention, but there is plenty of time to watch. One wave is over the Atlantic, the other is over Africa still. Finally, there is a disturbance off the East Coast, but it looks to stay out to sea. Next names on the list are Nana, Omar, Paulette, Rene.
