I hope everyone enjoyed their relatively rain-free Fourth of July because we’re going to see much more rain for the weekend. A front is slowly pushing into the Southeast and will continue trapping moisture in the area for the foreseeable future.
No frontal passages are expected any time soon, so all active weather will be daytime heating/sea breeze induced.
This trend will continue through the weekend, but will begin transitioning to a slightly drier trend near the end of next week. As the skies clear a little, temperatures will rise into the low to mid 90s again by next Wednesday meaning heat indices will return to potentially dangerous levels.
We’ll still see a few showers and thunderstorms on these drier days, but far fewer than we’ll see Saturday and Sunday.
Tropical Storm Beryl formed today. It is expected to move due west in an area of low wind shear for the next few days, which will lead to steady strengthening. It will become a hurricane by Friday afternoon, but should become more disorganized by Sunday as it moves through the Lesser Antilles. We will monitor the situation and update as needed.
