Storminess Continues Early This Week

Posted: Updated:

Showers and storm are already popping up during the early part of your Monday morning. Most of the action is along the coast, but some showers have worked northward toward the I-10 corridor. This activity will persist through the sunrise period and then calm down for a few hours during the morning. A trough in the upper levels, combined with plenty of moisture and some daytime heating by midday should get showers and storms redeveloping during the afternoon. Rain chances will hold at 60% and there's a chance we'll see heavy downpours in isolated areas. Keep you umbrella with you.

A rather moist and unstable air mass will stay in place for the early part of the week. Rains will be more likely today, but still a fairly good chance you'll see some rain into Tuesday and Wednesday. Temperatures for the early part of the week should reach 90 with heat index values reaching 100. Then as the afternoon storms kick in, temperatures will fall back into the 80s. 

Later in the week, high pressure is expected to push overhead. This should suppress the widespread rains, and take us back to the typical isolated activity during the afternoon. Temperatures later in the week should reach the lower 90s with heat index values between 100 and 105.

Tropical weather is fairly quiet. We're watching a couple of areas near the Leeward Islands.  Both areas are very disorganized. Some development is possible over the next few days.
