Seasonal Heat and Humidity Fuel Storms

Good morning to you! We hope that you are having a wonderful week so far! In today’s post, we will look at the chances of showers and storms that are to come for the remainder of the week, as well as the potential threats to take into consideration.

Storms? Shocker…(GIPHY)

Work Week

If you are out and about early this morning, beware of patchy fog. Generally, this is due to temperatures and dew points being the same value, in an area that has little to no wind. If possible, plan to leave a little earlier so you can take it slow on the roads.

For the remainder of the work week, chances of showers and storms will be on the rise and we have the remnants of Tropical Depression Fred to thank for that. As of now, elongated low pressure extending off the weakening storm will be the driver of this activity.

Our main concern will be locally heavy rainfall, that of which introduces the threat of isolated flash flooding. Therefore, be careful when around low-lying areas and roadways that are close to streams, as these areas are most vulnerable. Always remember: turn around, don’t drown!

That classic summertime combination of both heat and humidity will be in full swing, too. For each weekday, the high will reach the mid to upper 80’s and the low will drop to the lower 70’s. With oppressive humidity, it’ll feel even hotter, so make sure to have water on hand to stay cool and hydrated.

For this weekend, the story is much of the same, with the exception of the presence of a tropical storm. However, these chances of showers and storms will be on the decline, remaining scattered. Once again, our main concern will be heavy rainfall, mainly with Saturday evening.

As cloud cover decreases, the high’s will increase from the upper 80’s on Saturday to the lower 90’s on Sunday. Again, the heat index for both days will be in the mid to upper 90’s, so make sure to take precautions when outdoors.
