Less Humid for Father’s Day… Saturday Evening Update 5:10 p.m.


Good Saturday evening! Things this morning started gloomy, foggy, and overall dreary for the beginning of the weekend. Thankfully, shortly after lunchtime, clouds started to break some making for nice weather conditions to get outside. All the additional clouds allowed for cooler temperatures for today. Tonight, temperatures will drop into the low 70’s, upper 60’s, as a few clouds still hang on, but will move out tomorrow morning. Along with the clouds moving out for Father’s Day, temperatures will be close to 90 degrees and humidity will be down , making for a great Sunday to get outside with Dad.

Monday marks the official start to Summer, but I think everyone can agree that it’s already been feeling like it for a while. With that said, the lower humidity from Sunday starts to disappear Monday and temperatures will start to feel hot. Wednesday will bring the opportunity for a few isolated showers in the afternoon, and each day after, going into the weekend, rain chances will gradually increase.

Next weekend a front is set to be pushing through bringing with it a continued increase showers and storms for the weekend. meanwhile temperatures will continue to be warm and muggy.

Looking at the tropics, a broad area of low pressure has developed offshore of the west coast of the Yucatan Peninsula today, but the associated shower and thunderstorm activity remains disorganized. Some gradual development of this system is expected during the next couple of days in an environment of marginal upper-level winds, and a tropical depression could form while the system moves westward to west-northwestward at around 10 mph before moving inland over eastern Mexico. An Air Force Reserve Hurricane Hunter aircraft is scheduled to investigate this system Sunday afternoon, if necessary.
