Summer was in place for sure over the past weekend with hot and humid conditions, and only one or two cooling t-showers around. This pattern looks to change going forward. Right now, we’re tracking heat and humidity with temperatures reaching the mid-to-upper 80s and heat indices reaching the mid-90s. A few scattered showers and storms are moving out of the southeastern counties. 

We’ve been tracking a few scattered or even isolated t-storms earlier today. A few isolated spots clustered together and a larger storm formed, but moved out of the state. Now that daytime heating has been established, it’s only a matter of time before more scattered pop-up storms get going. Heavy rain, strong wind gusts and small to moderate hail are possible with some storms today, but most storms will stay below severe criteria. This is just the first sign of the active weather pattern taking shape this week. Lowering pressure and an inbound frontal boundary will be responsible for ramping up activity mid-week. Temperatures will cool with all of the added cloud coverage and rain, but we warm back up towards the end of the work week, when rain and clouds chances start to lower.  ?
