KJ's First Warning Forecast

High heat, humidity and storm chances this week!

After a dry start for Father's Day, watch for a few scattered showers and storms. Temperatures are having plenty of time to reach forecast highs into the low 80s with a light southerly wind.

High heat and humidity will make for some uncomfortable conditions this week. Expect highs near 90 for several days this week. In addition, heat index values will top out into the mid/upper 90s with some areas feeling like 100 degrees. Temperatures will be quick to warm up and slow to cool down each day. Be sure to take necessary steps to stay cool, hydrated and take frequent breaks if you spend long hours working outside. Rain chances will accompany us late Monday and more rounds of showers and storms each day.

Tropical Update

A disturbance is continuing to become better-organized with showers and storms about 300 miles southeast of Cape Cod in the Atlantic. The non-tropical area of low pressure has increasing chances of taking on sub-tropical characteristics tonight into Monday as it moves over warm waters of the Gulf stream. Meanwhile, regardless of any development - the system is expected to move northeast away from land and weaken once back over cooler waters.

* Formation chance through 2 days: LOW (40%)

* Formation chance through 5 days: LOW (40%)
