It was a warm, humid start with temperatures in the upper 70s and low 80s. Highs soar to the upper 80s in the afternoon and it will feel like the low to mid-90s due to high humidity. Monday night spotty storms will be possible with lows in the upper 70s.
Tuesday we will likely see more of the same with passing showers and some storms. It will be warmer with highs around 90 degrees.
The rain chance will be even higher mid to late week. Deep tropical moisture moves in from the Gulf of Mexico and the northwestern Caribbean will lead to more storms. In addition, a southwesterly flow will lead to storms tracking from west to east. Some heavy downpours will be possible due to a very moist, unstable atmosphere. We remain unsettled through the weekend with storms around.
