Sunday will start out nice with sunny to partly cloudy skies. The first half of the day will be the best time for outdoor activities as it will be mostly dry. Scattered storms will start forming in the afternoon and they will have a movement toward the northwest. In other words, they will tend to drift toward our side of the state and our coastal regions by late in the day into the evening. Therefore the rain chance is very low for the morning, but it jumps to about a 60 percent coverage later in the day into the evening. Clouds will also increase later in the day, so if you want sunshine, get outside during the first half of the day.
High temperatures will reach the low 90s before the storms kick in.
Scattered storms will wind down Sunday night with lows in the low to mid 70s.
A tropical low is in the Caribbean and the moisture associated with it will drift northward into the Gulf Monday. That will result in a lot more cloud cover for our area and also a greater coverage of showers and storms spreading across our region. Although it will not rain all day, it will definitely look gloomier and wetter with the moisture passing through. Therefore you can expect lower high temperatures in the mid 80s.
Never miss a local story.
There is still uncertainty with where the tropical low will move and if it will develop into a storm or not. It might not matter for our purposes as the end result is likely the same, resulting in lots of cloud cover for Monday into Tuesday and passing showers and storms. Beyond that, it’s too early to know if we get back to a normal summer pattern quickly or if the tropical moisture lingers most of the week.
