Rip Current Threat Decreases; Hot Through Wednesday

Figure 1. Tomorrow’s forecast high temps.

Tonight: Temperatures will drop into the 74 – 78 degree range.

Tomorrow: Ridging (high pressure) will be firmly in place, pushing temperatures into the 90s with heat indices in the 100 – 105°F range. Rain chances will remain low. However, an isolated pop up shower/storm can’t be ruled out. The best chance for a pop up storm will be north of I-10. Overnight lows will run in the 70s.

Tuesday/Wednesday: High pressure will remain in place, keeping highs in the low/mid 90s with heat indices ~ 5 -10° warmer. An isolated shower/storm will continue to be possible.

Late Week: Our area will come under the influence of an upper-level trough and a front during the latter half of the week, which should increase moisture and rain chances/coverage to end the week. The increased rain/cloud coverage should also lead to a decrease in afternoon highs and overnight lows by a few degrees.

Beaches: The rip current risk will finally abate tomorrow, and is expected to remain low through midweek.
