Good Thursday morning everyone!
Meteorologist Ryan Michaels says it'll still feel quite warm today, just not as excessively hot as days before.
It's a quiet start onshore on radar this morning with several scattered showers developing out in the Gulf and otherwise mostly cloudy skies. We'll see a few showers or thunderstorms develop along the Forgotten Coast through the morning, while others wait until the midday or afternoon to pick up a shower or thunderstorm. So go ahead and keep the umbrella near by, however, it won't be an all day rain in any one spot. Otherwise, you may see some fog on the morning commute if traveling inland along I-10 or up into the Wiregrass.
Temperatures are warm and humid in the mid to upper 70s, but most on the coast are at least out of the 80s this morning. We don't have a Heat Advisory today but it'll still be warm and humid! Highs this afternoon reach the upper 80s near 90 on the coast to the low 90s inland. The heat index today still reaches the triple digits at 100-104°, just shy of heat advisory levels.
Morning convection on the coast, especially down along the Forgotten Coast early on and developing storms through the midday near the coast should help to limit afternoon heat. However, inland areas may not see scattered storms developing until the afternoon, and as they wait they'll still get quite hot today.
The widespread scattered storms will develop off a weak front stalling out in the Southeast over the next several days. It'll be the focal point for widespread scattered storm development over the next several days. But no day looks like a washout as storms should be fairly hit or miss after today.
For today, mostly cloudy skies with scattered showers and thunderstorms likely. Highs today reach the upper 80s on the coast to low 90s inland with feels like temperatures of 100-105°. Your 7 Day Forecast keeps us a bit unsettled with a decent chance at a scattered storm through the upcoming weekend.
