Monday, May 20 Forecast Discussion

A warm one today as Key Field has already climbed to 88, making today the warmest of the year so far, with another hour to reach our high temperature. We will see another warm and muggy night with lows in the lower 70s and basically repeat today tomorrow as highs will again push 90 degrees.

Wednesday brings change as the system that is to our west causing plenty of severe weather back in the Plains will move our way. The good news is the bulk of the energy that is causing the severe weather will be well off to our north. With that said, a few strong storms do look possible on Wednesday. The main threats will be damaging winds and large hail. Tornadoes do not look likely at this point as we will not have enough shear in place to cause rotation in storms.

After a few leftover storms possible Thursday, we dry out for the weekend and return to seasonable highs in the lower and middle 80s into the weekend. We look to stay dry for a while as a high pressure ridge is currently forecast to develop to our west over the weekend. This also means if it shifts east next week, we could easily to 90, but that is a while out and have time to monitor that.
