Hot and Mostly Dry

 

A broad area of high pressure exists across the southeast today, and producing mostly fair weather.

Light northerly winds at the surface are advecting in drier air across the northern counties with dewpoints in the upper 50’s to low 60’s this morning.

Mostly sunny and few clouds will set up for a rapid warm up across the state today.

We expect high temperatures in the 90’s state wide for this afternoon.

Folks in the southern third of the state will see most of the humidity today, and there will be a few widely scattered showers and thunderstorms develop in the heat of the day.

Overall, the weather will be mostly quiet and dry through Wednesday. As the high shifts off to the east by last Wednesday, moisture will increase ahead of the next storm system.

There are indications that we could be in for some soaking rains for late week and into the weekend. We will update this as the event draws closer.
