Drier and windy Monday, tropical moisture increases mid-week

Breezy easterly winds will kick off the workweek as high pressure builds across the southeast United States

Plenty of moisture will still give us a chance of some showers and storms forming along the sea breeze on Monday, but chances stay around 30% with the highest coverage inland areas.

Afternoon high temperatures will peak in the upper 80s at the immediate coast and low 90s far inland.

With a tightening pressure gradient, look for easterly winds to gust upwards of 25 mph on Monday — and staying elevated through much of the week.

Our rain chances increase mid-week and especially into Thursday as more tropical moisture is expected to move our way.

Tropical Weather

Could this tropical disturbance bring us more soaking rain this week?

In the tropics, a low is expected to form in the Atlantic and move toward the Bahamas and then Florida later this week. The National Hurricane Center is giving it a 30% chance to develop but that will probably increase this week as global models show some development. The weather system will bring gusty winds and tropical rainfall into the state by mid-late week.

There will also be a broad low developing in the southwest Gulf of Mexico that the NHC is giving a 70% chance of developing. It will move into Mexico later this week and not bother us.
