Tropical Feel This Weekend…

  • Scattered weekend storms
  • Humid air mass
  • Less storm coverage early next week

Air You Can Wear…A very warm, moist, and unstable air mass will remain in place across the region this weekend.  While storms will be scattered, the moisture-laden air will help promote locally heavy storms at times.  Get used to heat indices in the mid-upper 90s into early next week.  Yuck!

Storm coverage will be on the decrease, overall, as we open the new work week.  That said, we have to maintain isolated coverage.  A weak boundary will slip through central IN the middle of next week and lead to scattered to numerous storms Wednesday.

In the tropics, Invest 99L remains at the forefront.  There are many more questions than answers at this time, but if the disturbance (somehow, someway) can make it into the southeastern GOM early next week, conditions will be much more favorable for development.

Upcoming 7-Day Precipitation Forecast:

  • Snowfall: 0.00″
  • Rainfall:  0.75″-1.25″ (locally heavier amounts)
