Sunday Night: Spotty storms around on Monday; Tropics are active

Weather

Tracking the Tropics: Tropical Storm Fred is forecast to strike the Florida Panhandle on Monday. The system is expected to be very sloppy, which means most of the impacts will be felt well to the east of the center. Tropical Depression Grace is forecast to track across the Hispaniola and Cuba. If it survives all of the land interaction, it will move into the Gulf of Mexico. Too early to tell what happens in the long run, which means we must watch this storm carefully. The central and western Gulf are very warm and favorable for tropical development.

Tonight: Rain will fade later this evening and we’re mostly quiet overnight. Morning temperatures will be in the low and mid 70s.

Monday: We start the morning on the dry side, but storms will likely start popping up by lunchtime and will be around through the evening. Highs will be near 90°F.

Tuesday & Wednesday: A frontal system will stall out to our north and northwest – this will lead to passing showers and storms at times. Storms may produce downpours, gusty wind, and lightning. Highs will be in the lower 90s.

Thursday – Weekend: Long term forecast is dependent on what happens with Grace. For now, we are keeping rain chances around 50% each day until we have a better grasp on what will happen with Grace.
