MONDAY: Our 20% chance for a stray downpour or storm will continue to diminish over the next few hours. Skies stay mostly clear tonight with lows in the low 70s. Patchy fog may develop overnight, so be aware during the early morning commute.
LATE WEEK: We continue the triple digit heat tomorrow, but slowly the humidity decreases for later on in the week. Highs will continue in the lower 90s, but sunshine is expected for the rest of the week with no rain chances until Friday.
WEEKEND: The humidity returns this weekend, which means a return of thunderstorm chances. Highs will be in the upper 80s to low 90s, and again it will feel like upper 90s and 100s. Daily chance of thunderstorms on Saturday and Sunday will be around 40 to 50 percent.
TROPICS: The tropics are getting busy this week, now with 3 systems to watch. Tropical Depression #2 developed off the Carolina coastline and has since strengthened into Tropical Storm “Bill”. I’m also eyeing the Gulf, where there is a 70% chance for a tropical depression by late week. If named, that would be Claudette. Also an early season African wave will likely not develop, but is something to monitor in the eastern Atlantic.
