First Alert Weather Story:
As we move through your Tuesday night, expect mostly clear skies. Some patchy fog is possible. It will be warm and muggy. Lows will be in the low 70s.
The heat and humidity will continue for the rest of the work week. Highs will be in the mid 90s Wednesday through Friday. When you factor in the humidity, it will feel like the triple digits, so be careful in the heat. A few isolated showers and storms are possible Wednesday through Friday, but we’re not expecting a washout. The rain would be pop up in nature. Rain chances are around 20%.
This weekend, we’ll see highs in the lower 90s. Still, with the humidity, it will feel much hotter. We’ll see partly cloudy skies. A few isolated to widely scattered showers and storms are possible, too. Rain chances are around 20-30% for now. We’ll keep an eye on your forecast.
We’re also keeping an eye on a couple of areas in the tropics. One area in particular is near the Bahamas. It has about a 40% chance to develop over the next 5 days as it moves northwest. It’s being called Invest 95-L. Most of our forecast models take the system over Florida, then into the Gulf of Mexico this week into the weekend. We’re also watching Invest 94-L, which has a 20% chance of developing over the next 5 days. Upper-level winds are expected to unfavorable for tropical developing to occur in the next couple of days. Again, we’ll watch it. The next storm would be called Humberto.
