Good Tuesday morning everyone!
Meteorologist Ryan Michaels showing the heat index across the South today.
It's a quiet start on radar this morning with mainly clear skies overhead. We'll be off to another wonderful sunny start today, so be sure to grab the shades.
However, it will be warm and humid, and warming fast as we start out in the mid 70s and reach the mid 80s by 9am. So dress comfortably again today as well. Highs push the low 90s on the coast to mid 90s inland with feels like temperatures reaching the low triple digits once again.
High pressure has taken up residence in the Southeast this week. The sinking motion brought on by the ridge of high pressure will help to limit rain chances, but it also is a warming process. So with a lack of any substantial storm system moving in, we'll have to rely on daytime heating and the sea breeze front to overcome the sinking motion brought on by the ridge if we want to create any rain to help cool us off. Due to the strength of the ridge in place, it's unlikely we'll see much more than a handful of stray afternoon showers or storms developing inland in the afternoon. Many of the same spots who saw a storm in the sky yesterday will have the chance again today.
This is likely to be the case for much of the week ahead, mostly to partly sunny skies with a few smatterings of a shower or storm possible in the afternoon away from the coast. We'll keep rain chances running at around 20% for inland neighborhoods, while the coast stays at a less than 10% chance all week.
For today, mostly to partly sunny skies with a stray afternoon inland shower possible, but not likely with rain chances around 20%. Highs today reach the low 90s on the coast to mid 90s inland with feels like temperatures in the low triple digits. Your 7 Day Forecast keeps this hyper-summery pattern in place through just about all of the week ahead.
