Temperatures failed to hit 90 again yesterday thanks to some widely scattered showers and a few thundershowers. The atmosphere was still moist and unstable enough for that summer time activity once again. High pressure is still trying to take over, and as we progress toward the weekend, the rain chances should shut down and temperatures should be closer and closer to 90 degrees.
Still some big storms over the Ohio Valley this morning and those will drift southeast along a stationary boundary. Dry weather for the rest of the nation this morning. The ridge of high pressure over Georgia will continue to build southwest and help to bring more sunshine to the area today and into the weekend. Storminess should remain to our northeast.
To the south, we're still watching a disturbance in the Bay of Campeche. This is a primary area for development during the early part of the hurricane season. Upper level winds aren't favorable for development, but anything in this area bears watching. Heavy rains will continue along the Mexican Gulf Coast over the next several days. The National Hurricane Center says there's just a 20% chance for development over the next five days.
Partly cloudy today with a high near 89. Fair tonight with lows in the low 70s. Hot and humid Friday with a high near 91. Staying dry and hot for the weekend.
