Meteorologist April Loveland's First Warning Forecast

Skies will be partly cloudy overnight with lows in the low 70s.

Another hot one on tap Tuesday with highs in the low 90s. An afternoon isolated storm is possible.

An area of low pressure will approach from the southwest and move toward the northeast Wednesday through Friday. This will give us a soggy stretch of weather.

The humidity will continue to rise into the weekend with dewpoints near 75 degrees. This will make for some uncomfortable conditions. Highs will climb to the low 90s over the weekend, but will feel closer to the triple digits.

Tropical Update

A low pressure system is centered inland over southern Georgia. The low is forecast to move northeastward, near the coast of the Carolinas and the mid-Atlantic during the next few days. No development is expected while the low remains over land, however some development will be possible if the system moves over water later this week. Regardless of development, the low is forecast to produce locally heavy rainfall that could cause flash flooding across portions of the southeast U.S. during the next couple of days.

* Formation chance through 2 days: LOW (10%)
* Formation chance through 5 days: MEDIUM (40%)

A fast-moving tropical wave continues to produce disorganized showers and thunderstorms a few hundred miles east of the Windward Islands. This disturbance has not become any better organized today, and development is becoming unlikely. The wave is forecast to move through the Lesser Antilles on Tuesday and could produce locally heavy rainfall and gusty winds on some of those islands.

* Formation chance through 2 days: LOW (0%)
* Formation chance through 5 days: LOW (0%)
