Meteorologist April Loveland's First Warning Forecast

Skies will be mostly clear overnight. It will be warm and humid with lows in the low 70s.

Another warm and summer-like day on tap for Tuesday. Highs will warm to the upper 80s. A few isolated storms are possible during the afternoon.

Temperatures will be very seasonal on Wednesday and Thursday with highs in the mid and upper 80s. We will once again have a chance for some afternoon storms. Storms on Wednesday could be strong to severe. The Storm Prediction Center has the area under a level 1, which means isolated severe storms are possible. The biggest threat will be damaging straight line winds.

A bit hotter on Friday with highs near 90 under mostly sunny skies. It will actually feel close to 100 with the humidity!

Storm chances will go up a bit for the Fourth of July holiday weekend. Expect highs in the upper 80s with a chance for afternoon scattered storms.

Tropical Update:

Disorganized showers and thunderstorms located several hundred miles east of the southern Windward Islands are associated with a tropical wave. Some slight development of this system is possible during the next day or so while it moves westward to west-northwestward at around 20 mph. Strong upper-level winds are forecast to inhibit further development by mid-week.

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

An area of low pressure is forecast to form off of the southeastern coast of the United States on Tuesday. Some development of this system is possible later this week while it moves generally northeastward well offshore of the east coast of the United States.

* Formation chance through 2 days: LOW (10%)
* Formation chance through 5 days: LOW (20%)
