Meteorologist April Loveland's First Warning Forecast
Partly cloudy overnight with lows in the upper 60s to low 70s. Patchy dense fog will be possible overnight and Monday morning. Make sure you give yourself enough time if you have an early morning start.
Monday is looking like the driest day of the week with a mix of sun and clouds as high pressure builds over the area. Just keeping a slight chance of an afternoon isolated shower or storm. Expect highs near 90. It will feel closer to the upper 90s due to the humidity. 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 93 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.
Showers and thunderstorms associated with a tropical wave located a few hundred miles south-southwest of the Cabo Verde Islands continue to show signs of organization. However, recent satellite-derived wind data indicates that the circulation remains elongated. Environmental conditions appear conducive enough to support additional development of this system, and a tropical depression could form during the next few days while it moves generally westward at 15 mph across the tropical Atlantic. Conditions are likely to become less conducive for development late this week.
* Formation chance through 2 days: Medium (40%)
* Formation chance through 5 days: Medium (50%)
