05/17 – Brantly’s “Scattered Showers” Sunday Night Forecast
Cloudy and humid conditions will persist through the next 24 hours with periods of showers and isolated thunderstorms. A light to moderate southerly wind flow will continue, with gusty winds over the water and along the coast. Overnight lows will be in the mid and upper 60s over the interior areas and ranging to the mid 70s along the beaches. Highs tomorrow afternoon will range from the upper 70s to lower 80s.
High pressure extending from the Atlantic across the Gulf of Mexico is fading quickly as a surface low approaches from the west. The boundary at the surface will push through the coastal waters this evening and tonight, bringing west to northwest winds. Generally westerly flow will then persist through this upcoming week as the upper trough that moves through the region today gets stuck over the Appalachian Mountains. A southwesterly component to the wind will be possible late in the week as high pressure extends across the southern Gulf of Mexico.
The latter half of the week and going into this weekend bring back climatological normal temps as the upper low shifts east and high pressure starts to build in from the west. Expect max temps to be in the upper 80s to near 90 by Friday.
In the tropics, we are tracking Tropical Storm Arthur over the Atlantic Ocean. It poses no threat to the Gulf Coast.
