Saturday 7/6 Forecast Discussion

The last couple of days have featured lots of clouds and some scattered heavy downpours. That, in turn, has helped keep temperatures way down below where they should be for the first week of July. Key Field only topped out at 82 this afternoon (we should be hitting the low 90s). We are going to see this pattern come to an end as this disturbance moves on to the East, and a more seasonal pattern sets up with upper ridging taking effect. We'll see our high temperatures begin to climb a little bit more each day, eventually making their way into the low and mid 90s by the mid to late part of next week. Our rain chances also decrease dramatically as we start the new workweek, to just a slight chance of a few scattered afternoon showers (very typical for this time of year). So while our weather around here is quieting down, eyes are shifting to the tropics. There is a pretty well organized area of convection way out in the Atlantic that the National Hurricane Center has given a Medium, or 30% chance, of development. We'll definitely keep an eye on this over the next week as it continues to move Westward and possibly develops. Enjoy the good pool weather this week!
