POP-UP STORMS TODAY; A BIT COOLER BY TUESDAY EVENING… Showers and thunderstorms are expected to pop up across the region today ahead of an advancing cold front that will cross our area on Tuesday. This will usher in slightly cooler, slightly drier air that will cause high temperatures to drop back into the mid-80s for Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday. Don’t get used to the “cool summer” temperatures, however, as we return to near 90° for the upcoming weekend. The good news to report this morning is INVEST 94L, the tropical disturbance near The Bahamas, has weakened and is less likely to develop into a tropical storm over the next 2-5 days. Let’s look at your forecast details…

STORMS TO POP UP THIS AFTERNOON… Another round of showers and thunderstorms is expected to develop this afternoon into this evening in the core heating hours of the day. Storms are expected to remain well under severe limits. Heavy rain, lightning, and gusty winds will be a concern. Radar updates will be posted as needed today in the RedZone Weather app.

HEAT & HUMIDITY TODAY; JUST A BIT COOLER TOMORROW… High temperatures will rise to the 90 degree mark in many spots today. Overnight lows by Tuesday morning will be near 72°. Temperatures will rise into the mid- to upper-80s on Tuesday. After the round of thunderstorms on Tuesday evening, you’ll notice the air starting to feel a bit less humid and slightly cooler. It won’t be COOL by any stretch of the imagination Tuesday night or Wednesday, but it will not be the 90s we’ve had over the last several weeks. I’ve heard feedback from a lot of you that you’re quite fine with this! “Anything cooler” is a statement I’ve heard quite a bit as of late.

NUMEROUS STORMS LIKELY ON TUESDAY… Rain chances will increase on Tuesday ahead of the passage of a cold front that will move across our area from north to south. We’ll call it a 80% chance of showers and thunderstorms. High temperatures will drop back into the upper-80s on Tuesday afternoon.

MORE POP-UP STORMS FOR THE END OF THE WEEK… Rain chances for inland areas will likely be suppressed somewhat by the slightly cooler, drier air in place, but there still will be quite a few pop-up thunderstorms on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday in our coastal areas. High temperatures will be in the mid-80s each day with morning lows around 70°.

INVEST 94L IS WEAKER… The National Hurricane Center has downgraded the development chances for the tropical disturbances currently over The Bahamas. The system now has only a 10% chance of developing into a tropical storm as it moves eastward toward the Florida Peninsula/Miami. No worries as there is a good chance that shear will continue to rip the system apart. We will keep you posted.
