Meteorologist April Loveland's First Warning Forecast

Some patchy fog is possible once again overnight and early Tuesday, especially in inland areas.

The heat will continue to build through midweek. Highs will soar to the low 90s on Tuesday with afternoon scattered showers and storms possible.

Very similar conditions on Wednesday, but just a bit hotter with highs around 91 degrees. Wednesday will be the hottest day of the week. Heat index values on Wednesday and Thursday will be in the triple digits. Storms will be possible once again, especially during the afternoon hours.

The end of the week continues to look a bit unsettled. There is a front that could bring us some showers and storms, but the weather models are in disagreement, so just keeping chances Thursday through Sunday. Temperatures will top off in the upper 80s to near 90.

Tropical Update:

An area of low pressure located almost 700 miles west-southwest of the Cabo Verde Islands is not currently showing signs of additional organization, with satellite-derived wind data from this morning still showing the system having an elongated surface circulation. However, environmental conditions are expected to be somewhat conducive for development to occur, and a tropical depression could form during the next couple of days while the disturbance moves generally westward to west-northwestward at 10 to 15 mph across the tropical Atlantic. Conditions are forecast to become less conducive for development by the end of the week

* Formation chance through 2 days: Medium (60%)

* Formation chance through 5 days: Medium (60%)
