7:00 AM | Much warmer weather conditions coming along with summer-like humidity

The comfortable weather conditions of the past few days are going away and it looks like we’re headed for a pretty consistent stretch featuring high humidity and heat along with the daily threat for showers and thunderstorms.  Any storm that forms during the next few days can reach strong-to-severe levels and produce heavy rainfall in a short period of time given the anticipated high moisture levels.

7:00 AM | Nice today...heat and humidity return by the weekend...NASA launch set for very early tomorrow

7:00 AM | Nice today...heat and humidity return by the weekend...NASA launch set for very early tomorrow

Comfortable conditions will continue for another day in the Mid-Atlantic region, but it'll turn much warmer and more humid on Thursday and then hot, humid weather looks rather likely for much of the upcoming weekend.  In terms of rainfall, an isolated shower or thunderstorm will be possible on Friday and showers and thunderstorms threaten later Saturday into Sunday as a frontal system approaches the area. One final note, NASA/Wallops will attempt the “artificial cloud” rocket launch very early tomorrow morning (between 4:25 and 4:48 AM).

7:00 AM | Still quite comfortable today...heat and humidity return by the weekend...NASA launch set for very early tomorrow

7:00 AM | Persistent threat of showers and thunderstorms

The threat for showers and thunderstorms will continue for the next several days as high levels of moisture will persist over the Florida peninsula right into next week.  Any storm that forms in this very moist air mass can produce some heavy rainfall in a short period of time as precipitable water levels are quite high.  High temperatures over the next few days will be pretty typical for late June primarily in the mid-to-upper 80’s across central Florida.

1:40 PM | *Deadly Hurricane Audrey slammed into SW Louisiana 60 years ago today as the strongest June hurricane to ever make landfall in the US*

1:40 PM | *Deadly Hurricane Audrey slammed into SW Louisiana 60 years ago today as the strongest June hurricane to ever make landfall in the US*

Nowadays, when the people of New Orleans think of devastating hurricanes they think of Katrina, but before 2005, the most notorious storm name in Louisiana was Audrey. Sixty years ago today, Hurricane Audrey slammed into the southwest coast of Louisiana and became the earliest major hurricane (category 3) to make landfall in the US. Hurricane Audrey killed hundreds of people – estimated to be somewhere between 400 and 500 - including many of whom to this day remain unidentified and tragically, about one-third of those were children. The high number of deaths - in an era without satellite imagery - were attributed to the storm moving ashore earlier and stronger than predicted while most people were sleeping.

7:00 AM | Daily threat of showers and thunderstorms

7:00 AM | Daily threat of showers and thunderstorms

The threat for showers and thunderstorms will continue for the next couple of days as the remains of a frontal boundary zone stall out in this area. Any storm that forms today, tonight or Wednesday can produce some heavy rainfall in a short period of time as moisture content is quite high.  High temperatures over the next couple of days will be pretty typical for late June primarily in the mid-to-upper 80’s across central Florida. 

7:00 AM | Heat and humidity returns later in the week

7:00 AM | Heat and humidity returns later in the week

High pressure continues to control our weather in the Mid-Atlantic region and temperatures should remain rather comfortable for late June through tomorrow.  Later in the week, a return of hot and humid weather will take place and with it will come an increasing chance for showers and thunderstorms.  It looks like once that return to somewhat unsettled weather returns by the end of the week it’ll stick around right into the early part of next week.

7:00 AM | One more day with rather comfortable conditions for the end of June

7:00 AM | One more day with rather comfortable conditions for the end of June

Temperatures should remain at or below normal for another day here in the Tennessee Valley, but a return to more typical summertime weather will take place later in the week.  With the return of the heat and humidity, there will be an increasing chance for showers and thunderstorms across our area and that threat will continue into the weekend. Any storm that forms during the second half of the week can reach strong-to-severe levels and produce heavy rainfall in a short period of time given the anticipated high moisture levels.
