We begin the day with mostly clear skies and temps for most in the 70s.
We were going with a higher chance of rain today, especially for our southeastern counties, but this morning's model data looks to be a lot drier. At this point I am adjusting our precip chances to 20-percent for this afternoon. Expect highs in the low 90s under variably cloudy skies and east winds around 5 mph.
Tonight should see partly cloudy skies...lows in the low to mid 70s...and light winds.
For the next several days we head in to a more typical Summer weather pattern for August. Look for highs in the low to mid 90s...partly cloudy skies...and just a slight chance of a heat-activated shower each day.
This system has the potential to strengthen, and now models are showing it could eventually end up in the Gulf of Mexico.
We will continue to closely monitor this system...more updates to come.
Have a great hump day!
