7/15 – Brantly’s “Hot” Thursday Forecast
A fairly typical summertime weather pattern will continue across our region today as the persistent deep layer ridge of high pressure continues to nose westward from the western Atlantic into the southeastern U.S. and adjacent north central Gulf Coast region. A light southeasterly to southerly wind flow will prevail over our region as a result of this setup. Lows tonight range near normal in the lower 70s inland and in the mid to upper 70s along the immediate coast. Patchy fog may develop again late tonight and early Friday morning .
Plentiful moisture remains in place across our forecast area on Friday. The increased moisture and available heating/instability may result in more coverage of showers/storms over our region by Friday afternoon. For now we have kept rain chances between 40-50% coverage over our area. Highs on Friday may trend a degree or two cooler than today. Temperatures remain on the warm side, with highs generally in the upper 80s to lower 90s Saturday. Lows stay warm in the lower to middle 70s for most locations, with some upper 70s along the immediate coast.
