Fewer storms and hotter temperatures into Monday.

Well I hope all of you had a great weekend and are excited to begin a new week!

Temperatures into Monday morning will start out in the mid 70s under clear skies, although some areas may have to deal with some patchy fog before the sun comes up.

High pressure at the surface in the Gulf of Mexico will help to keep rain chances in check throughout Monday afternoon. Rain chances will sit at around 10%, but an isolated storm or two can not be ruled out with the heating of the day. Overall storm coverage will be much lower compared to what we saw this weekend.

Instead, it will be more about the heat as highs top out in the mid 90s with heat indices sitting closer to the lower 100s. Proper heat precautions and practices remain advised.

Very similar setup heading into Tuesday as rain chances remain fairly low at 20% with highs again reaching the mid 90s.

That surface high will start to move eastward by late week, which should allow for a little better coverage of storms in our afternoons for Thursday and Friday.

Rain chances return to normal (30%) for next weekend. I hope y'all have a great week!

In the tropics: Still fairly quiet, but the NHC is now highlighting an area way out in the Atlantic and giving it a 50% chance to develop in the next 5 days. It'll likely run into a very hostile environment in the Caribbean Sea, so rough days are ahead for the system and most guidance have it getting torn apart by wind shear in the days ahead.

Rest of the tropics remain quiet at this time.
