Meteorologist April Loveland's First Warning Forecast

Skies will be partly cloudy with lows in the upper 60s to near 70. Some patchy fog is possible.

We'll start Monday with a mix of sun and clouds with highs in the upper 80s to near 90. It will feel closer to the mid 90s though due to the humidity. A disturbance will move just to our north, but it'll give us a chance for some afternoon showers and storms to pop up. The Storm Prediction Center has the peninsulas under a level 1 for severe weather, so an isolated severe storm is possible. The biggest threat will be damaging wind gusts.

We'll continue with hot temperatures on Tuesday and Wednesday with highs in the low 90s. Heat index values will climb up near 100 degrees on Tuesday. We'll continue with the chance for storms during the afternoon. A cold front will move through late Wednesday bringing a chance for some scattered showers and storms. Not quite as hot on Thursday with highs in the mid 80s. An afternoon storm will be possible once again.

Looks like we should dry out by Friday and heading into the weekend. High temperatures will bounce back to the low 90s.

Tropical Update:

A low pressure system located several hundred miles southeast of Cape Cod, Massachusetts has become less organized over the past several hours. The low has moved over cold water, north of the Gulf Stream, and tropical or subtropical development has become less likely. The system is expected to weaken as it moves over even colder waters on Monday and Tuesday

* Formation chance through 2 days: LOW (30%)
* Formation chance through 5 days: LOW (30%)
