The normal high temperature in Huntsville for this time of year is right around the 82 degree mark and we’ll generally be warmer-than-normal than that during this week. Large high pressure will be building westward from the western Atlantic over the next few days and contribute to our very warm conditions. There are strong signs that the tropics will get active by this weekend and there could be a system headed towards Florida or the eastern Gulf of Mexico. The “official” start to the Atlantic Basin tropical season is June 1st.

There will be a couple of frontal systems to deal with in the Mid-Atlantic region over the next few days and they will keep it somewhat unsettled around here, but it certainly shouldn't be as bad as it was last week. The normal high temperature in Philly for this time of year is right around 75 degrees and we’ll be slightly above that for much of the week. There are signs that the tropics will get active by the weekend and there may be a system headed towards Florida or the eastern Gulf of Mexico.

The “official” start to the Atlantic Basin tropical season is June 1st, but it could get off to an early start. There are signs that the tropics will come to life by this upcoming weekend with a possible system near Florida or over the eastern Gulf of Mexico. The new work week will start off with some tropical moisture remaining in the area and this will keep us somewhat unsettled with a continuing shot at showers and thunderstorms. An Atlantic Ocean ridge of high pressure will set up early this week and build westwards towards the Florida Peninsula and then we'll be monitoring the tropics later in the week.

A slow-moving sub-tropical low is continuing to pump plenty of moisture into much of the eastern third of the nation and our daily threat of showers and thunderstorms will continue into the weekend. The same southerly flow of air that is pushing moisture northward will keep us quite warm over the next several days with highs generally reaching the mid-to-upper 80’s on a daily basis.

7:00 AM | *More significant rainfall for the region*

Low pressures are riding along a stationary frontal boundary zone and they will spread more significant rainfall into the region from later today into Saturday. As a result, flooding is still a concern due to well-saturated grounds and flash flood watches continue in much of the Mid-Atlantic region. This same frontal system will push north later tomorrow as a warm front and this will lead to warmer weather conditions on Sunday and highs in the 80's. Elsewhere, it looks like the tropics will come to life in about a week or so with a possible system headed towards Florida or the eastern Gulf of Mexico.

Slow-moving sub-tropical low pressure continues to push deep layers of tropical moisture northward into Florida and much of the eastern third of the nation and it will continue to result in occasional showers and thunderstorms across central Florida. Temperatures will be rather consistently warm over the next several days with highs generally reaching the middle 80’s across much of central Florida. Looking ahead, it looks like the tropics will come to life in about a week or so and there may be a system headed towards Florida or the eastern Gulf of Mexico
