Another round of afternoon storms is back in the forecast today. In similar fashion to recent days, we’ll begin this the day with partly to mostly sunny skies. Hot and humid conditions will continue with highs climbing into the low 90s. Feels-like temperatures will climb to the upper 90s and low 100s given the elevated humidity.
Some brief relief will come in the form of the afternoon clouds and storms. Since the coverage of storms will be hit-or-miss in nature, not everyone will get the rain but the places that do could be in for another round of heavy downpours. As has been the case lately, storms will develop in the afternoon in isolated pockets across the interior and slowly drift across the peninsula. As the east and west coast sea breeze fronts work inland and collide, some intense storms may develop, especially over the inland counties. Gusty winds and frequent lightning could also accompany any storms.
Storms will lose their intensity once the sun sets and fade to showers. Much of the action will end before midnight. It will remain mild and muggy overnight with areawide lows in the middle 70s. Patchy areas of fog are possible through daybreak.
Conditions will not stray from this in the days to come with the pattern expected to last into the weekend and next week. Highs will consistently run in the low to mid-90s inland to near 90 at the coast. Plan on occasional afternoon storms each day, although the coverage may be just a bit less over the weekend as slightly drier air returns.
In the tropics, the remnants of Tropical Depression Two no longer exist. Elsewhere in the Atlantic basin, there are no signs of additional development expected within the next five days.
