Tuesday Forecast

Good Tuesday morning everyone!

Meteorologist Ryan Michaels showing today's toasty high temperatures.

It's a quiet start on radar with clear skies overhead in the Panhandle. We'll see a lot of sunshine out the door this morning and that will lead toward a warm and humid start for most.

Temperatures are in the mid 70s inland to upper 70s on the coast. But it won't take long before we're reaching the mid 80s by 9am and already feeling like the 90s! So dress comfortably today, and be sure to grab something cool to drink out the door. Highs today will have no troubles reaching the low 90s on the coast to mid to upper 90s inland with feels like temperatures for all of 100-105°.

High pressure is in place over the south at the surface and we sit at the top of an upper level ridge with fairly zonal flow aloft. A typical set up for just a few afternoon storms to develop along the sea breeze front or due to daytime heating this afternoon. Much like yesterday, they will be few and far between and mainly inland with a 30% chance you'll catch one. However, a weak northwest flow could pin the sea breeze a bit closer to the coast, or cause a few afternoon inland storms to move down to the coast by the day's end. So we'll keep a token 10% chance for that possibility on the coast later today. Any storms that do develop may bring some brief bouts of heavy rain.

This forecast should hold through our Independence Day as well, with anything that does develop in the afternoon fading away in time fore fireworks in the evening. The ridge breaks down a bit heading toward the end of the week, and our atmosphere becomes a bit more ripe with moisture. That should lead toward better rain chances developing in the afternoons of Friday and into the upcoming weekend.

Bottom Line...
For today, mostly to partly sunny skies with hot afternoon temperatures and a few stray showers or rumbles of thunder. Highs reach the low 90s on the coast to mid to upper 90s inland with feels like temperatures for all of 100-105°. Your 7 Day Forecast keeps this trend of hot days with only a few afternoon storms possible through Independence Day.
