Fathers Day Showers And Storms Mostly On The Gulf Coast

Gulf Coast
South Florida will see mostly Gulf Coast storms on Sunday, but we can’t rule out a stray shower or storm elsewhere.  We’ll celebrate Fathers Day with early sun and clouds, with showers and storms developing in the afternoon.  Greatest coverage will be in the interior and along the Gulf coast.   Highs on Sunday will be near 90 degrees.
Monday will bring more widespread showers and storms, with early activity in the east coast metro area, followed by late-day storms further west.  Monday’s highs will be in the upper 80s along the east coast and the low 90s elsewhere.
Tuesday will feature sun, clouds, and some showers and storms in spots.  Tuesday’s highs will be near 90 degrees.
Look for more of the same on Wednesday — sun, clouds, and a few showers and storms.  Wednesday’s highs will be near 90 degrees.  Rain chances increase on Thursday, but we’ll also see periods of sun.  Highs on Thursday will be near 90 degrees.
In the tropics, the area of showers and storms we’ve been watching is now in the central Gulf of Mexico.  While it has a low chance of developing, it will bring heavy rain and gusty winds to portions of Texas and Louisiana, starting on Sunday.
