Hot Afternoons, Few Rain Chances

Video Forecast

It’s going to be a hot one today with sun and clouds mixed and a very slim rain chance. Only one or two storms are possible, however, most likely no storms will form thanks to high pressure along the Southeast Coast. Highs will reach the upper 80s to near 90 degrees this afternoon with a strong breeze at times. Tonight, lows will only fall to the low 70s and some patchy fog is possible before daybreak.
Today: Sun and clouds mixed. A stray storm can’t be ruled out. High: 89°
Tonight: Some patchy fog late. Otherwise very muggy. Low: 73°
Friday: An isolated storm in the afternoon. Hot. High: 90°
The heat continues Friday and Saturday with limited rain chances. Highs will be at or above 90 degrees both days with only one or two cooling storms around. By Sunday, a weakness in the atmosphere will allow for a few more storms to develop, bring the afternoon highs into the upper 80s. Starting Memorial Day, an unsettled, and rather wet, weather pattern begins to take shape with scattered showers and thunderstorms each afternoon. The benefit of the rain will be keeping daytime highs in the upper 80s, but any outdoor activities may have to dodge multiple showers and thunderstorms. This wet pattern looks to continue through most of next week.

The tropics have quieted down for the time being, but we are only a week and a half out from the official start of hurricane season. For now though, no tropical development is expected through the next week.
