Good Friday morning everyone! & TGIF!
We're once again only waking up with just a few stray showers down along the Forgotten Coast on VIPIR 7 Doppler Radar. Everyone else will once again have a quiet and mostly sunny morning drive.
But just like yesterday, the heat and humidity cranks up early. That will lead toward another shot at some storms through the day.
Southeasterly winds will once again drive a sea breeze front up the coast from the southeast to the northwest through the midday. Storms will then push inland into the rest of the afternoon.
Thanks to some of the rain, however, we'll put a hold on many of us reaching the 90s. In fact it will be a race against time as to whether you hit the 90s before a shower or thunderstorm cools you off into the afternoon.
Very similar conditions will set up into the weekend. However, one minor difference could mean a few more storms throughout the day.
High pressure currently in place over the south in the upper atmosphere is acting a bit like a lid to keep our storms from popping. That high will break down over the weekend, so there won't be anything hindering daytime heating from bubbling up showers and thunderstorms.
We should expect to see a little bit more of a robust round of storms both Saturday and Sunday.
For today, mostly to partly sunny with clouds increasing and scattered showers and thunderstorms developing through midday. Highs today will struggle to reach the 90s before a rain shower cools you off, heat index values may still reach up to 100.
Your VIPIR 7 Day forecast keeps us unsettled in a summery pattern of heat and humidity with a chance of scattered storms each day.
