It was a warm, humid start with temperatures in the high 70s and low 80s. The highs climb into the upper 80s in the afternoon and it will feel like the low through the mid 90s due to the high humidity. Spotty storms with lows in the upper 70s are possible on Monday night.
Tuesday we’ll likely see more of this with passing showers and some storms. It is getting warmer with highs around 90 degrees.
The chance of rain will be even higher in the middle to the end of the week. Deep tropical moisture from the Gulf of Mexico and the northwestern Caribbean will result in more storms. In addition, a south-westerly current creates storms that run from west to east. Due to a very humid, unstable atmosphere, some heavy rains are possible. We remain unsettled by storms over the weekend.

A small depression off the southeast coast of the United States has medium development potential (60 percent) as it moves west to northwest at a rate of 15 to 20 miles per hour. The National Hurricane Center says the disruption could turn into a depression or tropical storm later Monday before reaching the Georgia and South Carolina coasts. Regardless of development, heavy rains and gusty winds are possible for Georgia and South Carolina.
