Getting back in the swing
Weather will bring much more of the same over the next two days-- warm and humid with isolated thunderstorms.
Today and Tonight: For Tuesday, a fast warm up into the low 90s along with lots of humidity and early sunshine will give way to bubbling clouds in the afternoon. A few will produce showers and thunderstorms. Overnight, action will wane with a muggy low around 70.
Up Next: Wednesday's weather will be a repeat of Tuesday. Look for some changes to occur as the week starts to wrap. Another day in the 90s will be achieved Thursday though rain coverage is expected to go up. By Friday and the weekend scattered to widespread activity will keep highs in the 80s. Outdoor activities may be a tougher bet into next weekend.
Forecast Discussion: Pop up afternoon showers and thunderstorms will be the rule through Thursday. Lake and sea breezes will be the key forcing mechanisms is setting off action, though daytime heat alone will be enough. Downpours, frequent lightning and gusty wind will be possible with any storms. By the end of the week, a cold front will slide into the Gulf South. Expected to park for a few days, and with a few waves of energy pegged to ride through in the upper levels, scattered to widespread storms are expected. Until this front washes out, or is kicked out by some jet stream energy, the more unsettled pattern will continue-- through at least Saturday.
