Hot and humid Monday with 30% showers and storms
Morning temperatures are starting very warm in the low 80s to upper 70s along with a few scattered showers. Scattered showers will be possible for the beaches to the bay area from 6AM - 2PM, with some sct'd storms developing and pushing inland after noon.
Temperatures on Monday afternoon will range from near 90 degrees at the beach to the mid 90's inland. Humidity will make it feel like temps in the low 100's. Skies will be partly sunny with 30% coverage of scattered showers and storms Tampa southward, but 40% north. With strong onshore flow, any activity that develops will move quickly from west to east.
Rain chances will begin to increase Monday night through Tuesday as a cold front pushes into the area. Expect more clouds, and daytime highs to drop by a degree or two. By Wednesday, the atmosphere will dry out behind a rare cold front in our area for July. That means lower humidity will move in for a couple of days before the humidity and rain chances return by Friday.
We are watching an area of disturbed weather associated with a tropical wave located a couple hundred miles south-southwest of the Cape Verde Islands. It is moving to the west around 10-15 miles per hour and has a decent chance of developing into a tropical depression or storm before it moves near the Lesser Antilles by next Saturday. As of now, forecast models that do develop it, turn it out to see off of the east coast of the U.S. sometime next week. The convection in increasing today and it could become Bertha over the next couple of days.
