Back in the saddle...

>> Monday, July 18, 2011

Good to be back this morning after a week away from the weather maps.

The big weather story this week in our region will be building levels of heat and humidity. Many highs today and tomorrow creep back up toward the lower 90s, but then it's mid to upper 90s Wednesday through the weekend...even some 100+ reading possible in some spots.

A few afternoon storms will pop up today in the higher elevations, and a couple might drift into the foothills. However, everybody has a much better chance tomorrow of seeing some scattered afternoon and evening storms. Thereafter, it just looks like we will see a few pop-up afternoon storms on a daily basis through the weekend.

There are signs of another break in the heat around here by next Tuesday or Wednesday.


Tropical Storm Bret is slowly gaining strength near the Abaco Islands. However, Bret will head out to sea and not impact the US directly. There will be some increased surf and rip currents for the Carolina beaches later this week.

Check out the Tropical Weather page of my site for all of the info you need regarding Bret and the rest of the tropics...

While no place wants a tropical system a Tropical storm would be helpful for Gulf Coast states to aid in their drought.
