Hottest week so far is here!

High pressure is upon us and what that means is lower than normal rain chances and very hot temperatures for late May in to early June.

General forecast for the central Gulf Coast

We could see a few afternoon showers and thunderstorms daily, but these will be our normal, summer variety popcorn storms. No severe weather is expected. Gusty winds and dangerous lightning would be the main threat of any thunderstorm that would develop.

Afternoon heat indices will be around 100 to 103 degrees today, and through the weekend. This is below our “heat advisory” criteria, but nevertheless, if you’re taking part in any outdoor activities, wear loose fitted clothing and drink plenty of fluids!

Saturday marks the first day of Hurricane Season 2019. So far the tropics remain quiet and look to be that way for the next couple weeks. We’re expecting a normal to MAYBE SLIGHTLY above normal season but everyone knows these long range forecasts usually do not have much weight to them. Mother nature always shows us who’s boss.
