7/8 – Rob’s “Heat Advisory” Monday Morning Forecast

Today will be another in a series of hot, humid, and mostly dry days across the forecast area. A Heat Advisory is in effect through this afternoon. Isolated convection will be back in the area through early afternoon developing along the sea-breeze front. More hot and humid weather is in store for the early part of the work week with rain chances remaining limited. The mid/upper ridge that has dominated the central and western Gulf Coast region for the last several days will continue to shift westward and become centered over the western Texas and the Four Corners region by mid-week with an extension into the lower Mississippi Valley. Temperatures are expected to moderate a bit with somewhat higher rain chances moving into the midweek period.

A trough over the north Georgia, north Alabama and Tennessee area will move south-southeast into north Florida and the northeast Gulf early in the week with an area of low pressure expected to form in this area. Beyond midweek, the forecast is low confidence with a wide variation of model solutions with regard to the development and movement of this low. Models indicate that the development of a tropical system will be possible during the latter half of the week. At this time, it remains uncertain what if any impact this system will have on the local forecast area. We have indicated a trend toward higher rain chances for the last half of the week.
