Sunday: Showers and thunderstorms in the afternoon, hot, and humid. Highs will be in the lower 90s, but it will feel like closer to 100s. Storms may produce downpours, frequent lightning, but will quickly move out of our area. Rain chance is around 40%.
Monday & Middle of the week: Scattered showers and storms are expected each day. Rain chance is around 40-50% Tuesday and Wednesday around 60%, as rain chances slowly drops in the later part of the week. It will not be a total washout, but rain coverage will be a bit lower than previous days. Highs will be in the lower 90s, but it will feel much hotter. Depending on how Fred tracks, rain chances could go up significantly
Friday and Next Weekend: Scattered rain chances into the later part of next week. Highs will be in the lower 90s.
Tracking the Tropics: Fred remains poorly organized, but it will slowly intensify as it enters the Gulf on Today. Current forecast path brings it toward the north-central Gulf Coast, possibly toward the Florida panhandle, as a tropical storm on Monday. The cone still includes the Mississippi Gulf Coast. Until Fred gets a bit more organized, it’s hard to say exactly who will get what. Still expecting impacts to stay to the east of our area. We also now have Tropical Storm Grace in the Atlantic approaching the Leeward Islands. It is likely to follow behind Fred’s track, but it is to soon to tell at this moment. Max sustained winds at currently at 40 mph.
