Strong high pressure will begin to build into our area on Tuesday and will stay firmly in control most of the week. Highs will be in the mid 90s today with a 50% chance for showers and thunderstorms but Tuesday into Saturday shower and thunderstorm chances will be greatly limited and highs will be in the upper 90s to possibly near 100 through that time period. Lows will be in the mid to upper 70s.
We are still tracking a tropical disturbance nearing the Leeward and Windward Islands that is forecast to become Tropical Storm Emily by today or Tuesday. At this time the storm poses no threat to our area but we will continue to monitor it.
