FORECAST DISCUSSION

Muggy air and warming temps will take our heat index to around 90 with highs in the mid 80s Wednesday. Scattered showers and storms will develop from late afternoon into the evening hours as a weak front will drop from the north. The front will also sustain the rain threat into the evening. Unlike the last few days, showers and thunderstorms will be possible after sunset.

High pressure will strengthen off the coast bringing a few generally dry days to the area Thursday through Friday. Highs will continue to run in the mid 80s with humidities dropping slightly. It will be a minimal change, but should help make for a comfortable Friday morning.

The Tropics
An area of low pressure has a 60% chance of being named by the end of the weekend. The weak system will have to be watched for better organization as the low moves into the Gulf of Mexico. If it is named, it would be the first tropical system of the season and take the name Alberto.

FORECAST:

Wednesday: Morning sunshine with scattered, late afternoon showers and thunderstorms. Highs in the middle 80s with southwest winds at 5-10 mph. Rain chance: 50%

Wednesday Night: Mostly cloudy with evening showers and storms. Lows in the upper 60s with southwest to north winds at 5-10 mph. Rain chance: 60%

Thursday: Mostly sunny and dry. Highs in the middle 80s with northeast winds at 5-12 mph.

MARINE FORECAST:

Winds will blow from the southwest at 10 to 20 kts Wednesday. Swells will run 3-5 feet offshore and 2-3 feet on the Sounds.
