It was a warm and muggy one around here, but right around what we might expect at the end of June really. Both heat and humidity probably tick up tomorrow, and it’s likely to stay dry most spots through Tuesday. After that, rain threats may be on the increase, so enjoy for now!
Through Tonight: Slight chance a shower or rumble works off the mountains and into western parts of the area through evening, but they should generally die off as the sun sets. Otherwise, we’re partly cloudy through the night, with light south winds continuing to stream low-level moisture in. Thanks to some clouds and that added moisture, don’t plan on lows dipping past the upper 60s to low 70s.
Tomorrow (Tuesday): Humidity remains high, and may actually bump up a notch compared to today. Add in afternoon temperatures in the upper 80s and low 90s… it’s not going to feel super pleasant out there! We can’t rule out a late day storm or two, but warm air aloft should try to keep a lid on things.
Pollen update: Grass pollen is moderate/high, weed and mold spores are low/moderate, and tree pollen is low.
Tropical update: While the low pressure spinning off the southeast U.S. coast has become better organized today, Hurricane Hunters have found it’s still not quite to the point of being classified as a tropical depression or storm.
Low east of Florida not yet a tropical depression. Only slight thunderstorm increase needed to reach that status. http://t.co/N09s8V4nTJ— Natl Hurricane Ctr (@NHC_Atlantic) June 30, 2014
However, the system does now have an 80% chance of becoming a tropical cyclone in the next 48 hours. If you missed our assessment earlier, take a look. We’ll have more as this storm develops and potentially tries to impact our weather later this week!
