TONIGHT: Increasing Clouds, Stray Showers. Lo 67. Winds NE 5 mph.

MONDAY: Mostly Cloudy, Mainly Dry with Stray Showers. Hi 80. Lo 67.

TUESDAY: Overcast, stray shower. Hi 80. Lo 67.

Yet another warm day was on tap Sunday afternoon, managing to warm beyond the low 80s into the mid to upper 80s. Later tonight a few stray showers are possible, especially after midnight, but the majority of the Midstate should stay dry.

The next front/trough of low pressure may provide just enough lift or energy to provide a few showers tomorrow. Model guidance seems to favor the mountains to the west for these showers, but for those who do get some showers we can not bank on much rain unfortunately- likely less than a quarter inch. Another round of light, scattered showers may develop by Tuesday morning before conditions turn drier. In terms of temperatures, we’ll be blessed with the presence of a 70 degree day or two midweek before we warm back up into the upper 80s over the weekend. Take advantage!

We are continuing to monitor the latest tropical depression in the Gulf of Mexico. This system is expected to eventually become a hurricane over the warm Gulf waters impacting Florida as early as Tuesday night. At this time we do not expect direct impacts here in the Midstate, the latest models keeping the remnant moisture south of us.
