PARTLY CLOUDY TODAY; HOT WEEK AHEAD… Isolated thunderstorms are happening this afternoon across coastal areas of Santa Rosa and Okaloosa counties. Vast majority of us will remain dry and hot today and over the next 2-3 days. Rain chances are slated to progressively rise as we go into the latter half of the week. Before we get there, we’ve got a few hot, mostly dry days ahead. Let’s discuss your forecast details…

STORMS HAPPENING NOW… Several small, highly isolated showers and thunderstorms are happening this afternoon across parts of northwest Florida, specifically in southern Santa Rosa and Okaloosa counties. These showers are drifting slowly to the west. Rain happened about an hour ago near Navarre and is now pushing into area near Opal Beach and Gulf Breeze. A few more isolated small storms may pop up over the next several hours. High temperatures are peaking in the low-90s across the region.

MOSTLY DRY THIS EVENING… Any showers and storms that pop up over the next few hours will quickly fade as we go into this evening after 8PM. Temperatures will decline into the 80s by 7PM and likely fall into the upper-70s by 11PM. Mostly clear skies are expected overnight.

MAINLY SUNNY MONDAY AND TUESDAY… Monday and Tuesday will be quite similar to today, with very low (<10%) chances of rain in the afternoon and evening hours as high pressure remains in control of our weather pattern. High temperatures will be in the mid-90s each day with plenty of sunshine for all of the beachgoers at the Alabama and northwest Florida beaches.

RAIN CHANCES SLIGHTLY INCREASE WEDNESDAY INTO THURSDAY… Pop-up thunderstorms will become more numerous across the region as we go into the latter half of the week. We’ll call it a 30-40% chance of rain for Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday. Most of the storms will happen in the afternoon and evening hours. Severe weather is not expected.

TROPICS ARE QUIET, FOR NOW… Tropical storm formation is not expected across the tropical Atlantic, Gulf of Mexico, or Caribbean Sea over the next 5 days. We note that some of the global models show a developing tropical storm well east of Florida, southwest of Bermuda in 5-7 days. All of the models show the system rapidly moving northeast away from the continental United States. We’ll keep you posted.
