7/23 – Payton’s Tuesday Afternoon Forecast
FORECAST: Keep the rain gear nearby this afternoon and evening. A cold front moving into the area will increase heavy rain and t-storms through the afternoon and evening. Some could produce very heavy rainfall, lighting and gusty winds. By tonight the rain should start to push offshore and dry air will start to filter in. There isn’t any cold air with this cold front, but the drier air will allow temperatures to fall into the lower 70s along the coast to upper 60s inland for Wednesday morning. Wednesday afternoon looks beautiful with sunshine, warm temperatures and lower humidity. By Thursday some moisture returns and a few showers are possible, but it should still be rather nice outside. By Friday we’re back into the typical pattern and it’t hot and humid going into the weekend with increasing rain chances.
TROPICS: Tropical Depression Three has dissipated, but will continue to bring some rain along the East Coast. We will have to watch the Gulf of Mexico this week as the cold front stalls out in the Northern Gulf of Mexico. With persistent showers and t-storms over the Gulf this can sometimes lead to a low pressure developing. This time of year these lows can try to become tropical. Nothing to really worry about right now, but it’s something we’ll be keeping an eye on. Still many unknowns and a low pressure might not even form. The National Hurricane Center currently shows a very low chance of tropical development later this week.
