Daily Weather Briefing for Sunday, July 7, 2019




Outlook

Elevated chances of mainly afternoon and evening showers and thunderstorms will continue through the weekend and into early next week. High pressure moving past to the north on Tuesday and Wednesday may bring slightly cooler temperatures. A weak front dropping down from the northwest late in the week might bring another round of numerous showers and storms for Thursday into Friday. There is also a low-pressure system to our west that may develop into a storm after it drifts southward into the Gulf of Mexico and return to shore next weekend near Louisiana.

Weather Hazards

Scattered thunderstorms are expected this afternoon and evening. Any thunderstorm that develops will be capable of producing strong gusty winds, brief heavy rainfall, and cloud to ground lightning. A few of these thunderstorms may become severe and produce damaging wind gusts. In addition, localized flooding and flash flooding will be possible if thunderstorms persist over the same areas.


**Note** A Tropical Weather Outlook section has been added to the daily weather briefing for the Atlantic Hurricane Season, and since those tend to run long when there is activity, that section has been added between the daily forecasts for the four regions of the county and the almanac section so people can get to their daily forecasts with minimal interference.
