Video forecast for Sunday morning

We’re finally done with the upper 90s for the foreseeable future. Instead, a very wet pattern will develop over the next few days.

Today & tonight: Today started off mostly clear in most areas, but showers are already starting to move in from the Gulf of Mexico. These will continue to advance inland and increase in cover during the day. Here in the Capital Region, rain chances should really start to increase around noon to 1 p.m. The greatest chance of rain is in the afternoon and evening hours. Here we expect rain and thunderstorms spread throughout the country. Overall, the best chances for rain and the largest rain totals will be in coastal areas. Even further inland there is a chance of heavy rainfall, which could cause some isolated flash flooding issues. This will be especially true in typical areas with poor drainage. Today’s highs will make their way to 93 degrees. Increasing cloud cover and penetrating rain will ensure that temperatures do not rise further.

While there are some indications that we are dehydrating during the night hours, I wouldn’t count on it 100%. There will still be plenty of moisture, so isolated showers and storms cannot be ruled out. Lows will be around 76 degrees.

Next one: The coming week will remain turbulent. Monday will likely be the wettest day, followed by Tuesday. During that period there may be excessive rainfall. Rain coverage will decrease a bit on Wednesday before we start to dry out a bit towards the end of the week. A small chance of rain still remains possible. Overall, most areas will see 1 to 3 inches of rain, with locally higher totals Sunday through Wednesday. Temperature-wise, it will top out in the mid-80s early in the week due to all the rainfall. After that point, highs will begin to return to the lower 90s on Thursday.

The tropics: A large area of ​​disturbed weather has formed over Central America, Mexico’s Yucatán Peninsula and the adjacent waters of the northwestern Caribbean Sea. A broad area of ​​low pressure is expected to form over the southwestern Gulf of Mexico within a day or two from this system. Environmental conditions appear conducive to the gradual development of this system, and a tropical depression could form by mid-week as it slowly moves westward or west-northwestward. This system will not influence our forecast, regardless of development.

An area of ​​low pressure is forecast to form a few hundred miles northeast of the central Bahamas by mid-week. Environmental conditions could then be conducive to some development of this system as it moves westward or west-northwestward. While this system isn’t an immediate cause for concern, it is something to watch in the coming days.
