Here is your forecast for Saturday, June 22nd, 2024.

Tropical moisture returns this weekend, leading to muggy conditions and afternoon downpours.

Overnight will be muggy with partly cloudy skies and lows in the mid to upper 70s.

We'll start off both Saturday and Sunday morning with sunshine, ample humidity and temperatures in the upper 70s. After Noon, showers and storms will become numerous, producing heavy downpours and lightning through the evening. These storms will taper after sunset.

High temperatures will stay in the low to mid-90s. With the humidity, it will feel more like 100-107°.

The high rain chance will last through Monday until it comes back down to 40-60% starting on Tuesday.

TROPICAL UPDATE

The National Hurricane Center is monitoring two areas.

Showers and thunderstorms associated with a well-defined low pressure area centered about 80 miles east-southeast of Brunswick, Georgia, continue to lack the necessary organization for the low to be considered a tropical depression or storm. Recent Air Force Reserve reconnaissance aircraft data indicate that winds to 35 mph are occurring in association with the low. Only a small increase in the organization of the showers and thunderstorms could result in the formation of a short-lived tropical depression before it reaches the coast of northeastern Florida or Georgia tonight; that probability is moderate at 50%.

 
In the southwestern Gulf of Mexico, a broad area of low pressure is forecast to form over the Bay of Campeche by this evening. Environmental conditions appear conducive for gradual development of this system as it moves slowly west-northwestward or northwestward, and a tropical depression could form over the southwestern Gulf of Mexico this weekend.
