Sunday, June 2 Forecast Discussion

A cold front is continuing to push through the region tonight. A few lingering showers and a storm or two will accompany it through the early overnight hours. Behind this front, much drier air will work in to lower humidity and eliminate rain chances. Temperatures, however, will remain in the upper 80s to start the week and low 90s by midweek.

As we approach the middle of the week, moisture and a little bit of uplift will be present to cause some showers and storms to return in the afternoon Wednesday through Friday. Our moisture increase may be aided by a tropical system over the Gulf (more on that below). We will clear out for the weekend with the warmest readings so far this year arriving Saturday and Sunday as highs could reach the mid 90s.

Now, just off the Yucatan Peninsula between Mexico and Cuba is a tropical wave that is showing better signs of organizing. It is still too early and uncertain if this will become Andrea in the next two days, but development potential is present. The good news for us is just about every model takes this system into Florida, so if you have any travel plans to Florida this week, you will want to monitor this system very closely as there could be a landfalling tropical storm by midweek.
