5/14 – Payton’s Monday Afternoon Forecast
Another hot day, but we will see better chances of a shower or thunderstorm this afternoon than what has become the norm for the past several days. It will actually look more like a typical summer pattern. Temps will remain around 90 as well.
The low over the southeast gulf could go through a slow transformation over the next few days gaining either subtropical or tropical cyclone characteristics. Hurricane center sets the
percentage at 30 for the next 2 days. The future path of this low is going to be over the eastern half of the gulf. The system will move northward for a bit before stalling and shifting or spiraling westward. This should start to occur later today. The low should then stall around 100 south of Pensacola before taking its final journey north or northeast. The stall should occur this evening with a northeastward movement coming Wednesday. The heaviest rain is expected to stay along and east of a north/south axis through the center of the low.
