SCATTERED STORMS TODAY; TROPICS QUIET… Just like yesterday and just like the next few days, today will feature another round of showers and thunderstorms this afternoon into this evening. Storms will be most numerous from 2PM to 8PM. Cloud-to-ground lightning, gusty winds, and localized downpours of rain will be the main concerns. Widespread severe weather is not expected. We’ll call it a 50-60% chance of rain for most locales today. High temperatures will be in the low- to mid-90s. More of the same is expected over the next several days with P.M. showers and thunderstorms. A few more details…

ATLANTIC BASIN NOW QUIET… The National Hurricane Center suggested over the last 48 hours that an area of low pressure east of Virginia in the Atlantic Ocean had a small window when tropical storm formation may happen. That is now no longer the case. The system has moved into an area of harsh upper-level winds that will prevent development. We note the remainder of the tropical Atlantic, Caribbean Sea, and Gulf of Mexico all remain quiet with no tropical storm formation expected over the next 5 days. Let’s keep that streak going!

SCHOOL PRESENTATION SEASON… It was an honor for me to visit the kindergarten class at Pollard-McCall Junior High School yesterday. My calendar continues to fill up with numerous school presentations scheduled now through Christmas. If you’re a teacher or know of teachers that would like a school weather presentation, be sure to contact me ASAP to get it scheduled. I travel near and far to get the word out about severe weather safety and RedZone Weather.

See all the details in your Tuesday #rzw forecast video… Enjoy the day!
