Good Monday, everyone. It’s the 4th of July holiday week and we continue to be locked into a steamy and stormy pattern. Boomers on Sunday caused a few issues, and it looks like today’s action may follow their lead.
A plume of tropical moisture is aimed at us from the Gulf of Mexico. This will help crank additional showers and storms today, especially in the afternoon and evening. A few of the storms may pulse up and become severe, with local wind damage possible. These storms will also be tremendous rain producers and may cause more flash flood issues.
Here are your Monday tracking tools:
A few storms will be back in town for Tuesday, with highs in the upper 80s to low 90s. The current call for the 4th of July is for a hot one to take shape. Heat index values may reach 105 degrees in many areas:
This is going to have a big impact on parades and outdoor activities, so take early heat precautions.
Showers and storms will amp back up later in the week into the weekend:
Additional heavy rains and strong storms will be possible. Temps should also come down several degrees during this time, but the high humidity will hang tough.
Have a fantastic Monday and take care.
