Monday will be another day of showers and storms, with periods of sun along the Gulf coast and more clouds than sun in the east coast metro area.  Heavy rain and localized flooding are possible.  Monday’s highs will be mostly in the upper 80s in the east coast metro area and in the low 90s along the Gulf coast.

Tuesday will bring a mix of sun and clouds with some showers and storms, mostly in the afternoon.  Tuesday’s highs will be in the upper 80s in the east coast metro area and the low 90s along the Gulf coast.

Wednesday will feature a morning mix of sun and clouds and showers and storms in the afternoon.  Look for an increasing risk of dangerous rip currents at the Atlantic beaches on Wednesday and into the weekend.  Wednesday’s highs will be in the upper 80s in the east coast metro area and near 90 degrees along the Gulf coast.

Thursday’s forecast calls for plenty of sun alternating with periods of showers and storms.  Highs on Thursday will be near 90 degrees.

It’s getting busy in the tropics as we watch two areas.  We’ve been tracking a wave in the central  Atlantic that will reach the Windward Islands on Tuesday.  This wave has a high chance of becoming a depression in the next five days.  And there’s a developing low in the northern Gulf of Mexico that will be drifting in the direction of the Louisiana and Texas coasts.  This feature has a low chance of development during the next several days.
