MONDAY: While some have a long weekend, for those heading back into work – expect more of the same with highs topping out in the upper 80s to lower 90s through the afternoon hours. A few pop-up storms can’t be ruled out, though many will remain dry amid a mostly to partly sunny sky. We’ll remain quiet overnight with lows in the upper 60s and lower 70s.
TUESDAY: A transition day of sorts as we get an influx of tropical moisture into the region. Many hours will be dry – but a few downpours can’t be ruled out. Expect partly turning mostly cloudy skies with highs topping out mainy in the middle 80s.
EXTENDED RANGE: Expect a bit of a squeeze play between an approaching cold front from the west and Michael approaching moving closer to the northern Gulf Coast. Michael will likely be deflected east as long as the front moves into the region by Wednesday. At this point, that looks to be a good bet – taking most of the impacts from the storm east of the region. For us, we’ll be more influenced by the front – bringing a chance for showers and storms, then turning drier and cooler by the end of the week. Highs will drop from the 80s into the 70s; overnight in the 50s by Thursday, continuing through the weekend.
