8/1 – Rob’s “Hot & Humid” Afternoon Forecast
We will likely see a gradual increase in convective coverage from isolated/scattered to scattered/numerous beginning Friday through early next week.
The area is under the dominance of high-pressure to our east and a stationary front north. Combined with strong daytime heating, this will allow for increasing daytime thunderstorms across the forecast area. We are looking at a range of 40 to 60% each day through this weekend and into early next week. The northeastern areas will see the highest coverage and southwestern seeing the lowest.
Beyond typical 7 day forecast, will be monitoring wave way out in the Atlantic for its movement. Medium range models bring it into the Bahamas late next week in various degrees of development. Main thing watching for is if it will recurve as models currently show.
