WEATHER SUMMARY: Happy Sunday! It’s been a long weekend of hot temperatures and mostly clear skies, but a broken boundary lingering around our coast and the sea breeze front will help to stir up some pop up storms this evening. Starting tomorrow through next Sunday, there won’t be much of a change in the weather pattern. Each day includes a chance storms and showers, temperatures will stick around the upper 80s and dew points still riding around the uncomfortably sticky range. This is associated with a stationary front around the region and an area of low pressure that will ride along this boundary traveling east from over southern states, up the Carolina coast and to northeastern states by the weekend. This low pressure with origins in the Gulf will pump in that heat and moisture to southern parts of the nation. (This low pressure system is discussed more in the tropical outlook.)
Tonight: Few clouds out tonight. Chance for a shower or storm. Lows in the mid 70s.
Monday:Mix of sun and clouds. Temperatures in the mid to upper 80s, but it will feel like low 90s. Increasing clouds late with a chance for showers and storms.
Tuesday: Mostly cloudy skies. Highs in the mid to upper 80s. Occasional showers and storms throughout the day.
TROPICAL WEATHER OUTLOOK: Tropical Depression #5 continues to pull east/northeast away from Bermuda. Models show this group of showers and storms reaching tropical-storm force winds over the next 48 hours. The track of TD5 keeps it well away from our coast.
An area of low pressure has emerged in the Gulf bordering Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama’s coastline. This low could develop more before it moves inland. This low is expected to submerge within a larger low and then re-emerge offshore of the Carolinas later this week giving additional formation a 40% chance of development over the next 5 days.
