KJ's First Warning Forecast
Most of us are moving right along without a drop rain on this Sunday.
For the most, the heat is manageable with a wide range of highs from low 80s on the peninsulas and the Outer Banks to near 90 for inland areas. Humid, but not unbearable in part to a slight easterly breeze.
A shower or storm is possible, but the best concentration of showers continue to impact areas west of our area. Expect a chance of rain each day this week especially during the afternoon. By mid and late week, a developing system in the Gulf may bring soaking rain for Thursday and Friday. Continue to check in for updates on timing and impacts should it develops further.
Tropical Depression Five is accelerating away from Bermuda to the northeast at 21 mph. The maximum sustained winds are near 35 mph with higher gusts... It may become a tropical storm by tonight before weakening over the course of the day Monday. Nevertheless, no threat to land either way.
A developing system in the Gulf of Mexico could make for a wet week across the southeast and mid-Atlantic. The latest satellite and radar imagery shows the area of low pressure is producing showers in the northern Gulf with the potential of becoming better organized as it moves to the northeast. The system is expected to cross over land and emerge off the Carolina coast by midweek. It is possible for a weak system to develop. The chance of formation through the next five days continues to increase. Stay tuned for updates.
* Formation chance through 48 hours: LOW (20%)
* Formation chance through 5 days: LOW (40%)
