Daily Weather Briefing for Monday, July 8, 2019





Outlook

A weak front dropping south across the region will keep the chance of showers and storms elevated today. High pressure moving past to the north on Tuesday and Wednesday may bring slightly cooler temperatures. Another weak front dropping down from the northwest late in the week might bring another round of numerous showers and storms for Thursday into Friday. A tropical system in the Gulf of Mexico may bear watching for potential impact next weekend or early next week. Scroll down to see a more complete look at the potential in the Tropical Weather segment.

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.

TROPICAL WEATHER OUTLOOK



Tropical Weather Outlook
NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL
200 AM EDT Mon Jul 8 2019

For the North Atlantic...Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico:

1. A trough of low pressure located over the southeastern United States is forecast to move southward toward the northeastern Gulf of Mexico, where a broad area of low pressure will likely form in a couple of days. Some gradual development is possible thereafter and a tropical depression could form by the end of the week while the low meanders near the northern Gulf Coast. Regardless of development, this system has the potential to produce heavy rainfall along portions of the northern U.S. Gulf Coast later this week. Interests along the northern Gulf Coast and Florida peninsula should monitor the progress of this system.

* Formation chance through 48 hours...low...near 0 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days...high...70 percent.
