Hot and humid weather will continue for the Pine Belt for the rest of the week and into the weekend. There is a 40% chance for an afternoon or early evening shower or thunderstorm each day with highs in the 90s and lows in the 70s. By the middle of next week we may see high pressure strengthen over the deep south and that could send our temps soaring into the upper 90s and decreasing our chances for showers and thunderstorms.
As far as the tropics are concerned, we are are watching several tropical waves cross the Atlantic and these will bear watching for development over the next week to ten days.
Tropical Storms Bret and Cindy are moving northeast in the cooler waters of the Atlantic and will eventually dissipate and never have any impact on the U.S. mainland.
